UPDATE: "Logan Lerman is not in talks to play Peter Parker in the "Spider-Man" reboot. Both Columbia Pictures and the actor’s camp have denied that Lerman, who stars as the title character in “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” is the lead candidate for job."

At this point, everyone knows about the big SPIDER-MAN reboot that will star a high school aged Peter Parker. At first, nobody was sure what to think of a SPIDER-MAN reboot, but that was before Marc Webb was hired to direct the film. Now many people are much more excited about the possibilities of the project. Now all that's left is casting the Web-Head, and apparently the studio has talked to young Logan Lerman about the part.

Check out what he had to say after the jump!

"There have been a few discussions, it’s definitely something I’m looking into. It’s one of my favorite characters ever and I’m a huge fan of the series,” he continued. I’d love to have more conversations about it. I’m definitely very interested in it. It’s a long process with the studio and the producers and everything. But it’s definitely a project that I’m really interested in, of course. I’d love to focus on the human element a little bit more. It’d be such a fun experience."

Since they reached out to him, they are obviously interested. Since his new film PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THEIF has not yet been released, they might be waiting to see how it performs before hiring him on for such a high caliber project.

I have to be honest, I never thought about Logan Lerman in the role, but I actually really like this choice. I could see him being the quick wit, smart-ass Spidey that we all know and love. Hopefully this fleshes out, I'm sure we'll see in coming months.

What do you guys think of this casting choice? Can you see him in the role? While you're at it, check out my interview with Logan Lerman and the rest of the PERCY JACKSON cast.
