For Tom Holland, the choice to lead a normal life is no longer an option. That's because Sony announced Tuesday he's filling Andrew Garfield's shoes as the next Spider-Man.
The film will be directed by Sundance Film Festival sensation Jon Watts, director of the upcoming Kevin Bacon movie "Cop Car."
Sony Pictures Chairman Tom Rothman said in a statement: “I've worked with a number of up-and-coming directors ... and believe that Jon is just such an outstanding talent. For Spidey himself ... Tom's screen tests were special."
