‘Spider-Man 4’ Filming In Michigan, Says Sam Raimi

Spider-Man” franchise director Sam Raimi will be bringing a few cameras back to his home state of Michigan for “Spider-Man 4″ next year.

“I’ll be looking at Michigan for our second-unit photography on the new ’Spider-Man’ film,” Raimi told The Oakland Press. Born in Royal Oak, Michigan, Raimi also has plans to shoot his new thriller “Room 205″ in Michigan during 2009. However, “second-unit” photography likely won’t bring along any of the upcoming Spidey cast members, such as the mystery “Spider-Man 4″ villain.

Raimi is producing “Room 205,” which is a remake of a Danish horror film coming out from his company Ghost House Pictures. He has a stacked schedule ahead of him before shooting begins on “Spider-Man 4.”

Nevertheless, Spidey fans everywhere will have their ears open in 2009 awaiting story details. Raimi has remained mum thus far, brushing aside speculation that Dylan Baker’s character Curt Connors may transition into becoming The Lizard and take center stage.
