Jamie Foxx Shares How He Surprised Daughter With THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Casting
Given that his daughter is a huge Spidey fan, Django Unchained actor Jamie Foxx found a special way to break the news to her that he'll be going up against the webhead in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel
Amid early negotiations to play Maxwell "Max" Dillon AKA Electro, actor Jamie Foxx shared how he couldn't wait to break the news to his 4-year-old daughter, who happens to be a Webhead fanatic. And now that the Academy Award-winning actor has officially joined The Amazing Spider-Man sequel, Foxx explained to Access Hollywood at the Django Unchained premiere:
”[She] dressed as Spider-Man for Halloween and had a Spider-Man jumper. Yesterday, I took her to the set, she didn’t know [that I had been cast], and she says, ‘What is this?’ I said, ‘Daddy’s going to be in ‘Spiderman.’’ She asked me, ‘Is Spider-Man going to beat you up?’ and I said, ‘I don’t know. She says, ‘Good,.’ [The role] is an amazing ride. So, it’s humbling and just a lot of fun.”
The next installment of The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx and Shailene Woodley. The screenplay is by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt. The film will be directed by Marc Webb and produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. The untitled new film in the Spider-Man saga is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014. Production will begin in early 2013 in New York.
