'Harry Osborn': My Last Spidey Movie

James Franco says he's done with super-hero films after Spider-Man 3. Plus, talk of Spider-Man 4.
James Franco told iF Magazine he's not going to do any more Spider-Man movies, or super-hero films, after Spider-Man 3.

"No one is talking about four yet. I'm sure that Sony would like to make like 20 of them. But there is no script for four that I know of."

When asked if he would do a super-hero film if he could play the lead, Franco said: "One comic book movie is enough."

He added that production starts this week on the West Coast. "[We're shooting] mostly in L.A. At Sony [studio]. And then we always do exterior shots in New York here. It's about a five [month shoot] I think. That's pretty long actually -- longer than most movies."

Regarding the stunts: "You have to do wire work and all of that stuff, but the experience of getting into character is the same," says Franco. "Yes, it's a comic book, but the people in Spider-Man aren't acting like they're in a comic book. They're acting like they're in the real world. Tristan [his character in the new film Tristan & Isolde] is based on a legend, but we're not acting like we're in a fantasy land. We're acting like real people who live in that world. So that's the same thing."

Meanwhile, contrary to Franco's statements, there is rumor of Sony looking for a Spider-Man 4, according to Moviehole. Director Sam Raimi's next project is Wee Free Men, a family-friendly fantasy film, so there's no word of whether he's interested in a fourth film. Previously, Raimi has said he always viewed his Spider-Man films as a trilogy.
