Heat Vision | THR is reporting that Campbell Scott has joined the cast of Marc Webb’s 3D Spider-Man reboot, with Irrfan Khan, Annie Parisse and Julianne Nicholson in various stages of discussion.
Scott and Nicholson will play Peter Parker’s parents:
“…who leave their son an orphan. Parker’s parents have rarely been seen in the various Marvel comic book series and have never appeared on-screen. It is unclear if they will appear in flashbacks, in a prologue or during the course of the movie.”
Khan will be playing a villain named Van Atter, the second villain that will be appearing in the film after the previously cast Rhys Ifans (who is rumored to be playing The Lizard). Parisse will playing the villain’s wife.
Spider-Man is scheduled to hit conventional and 3D theaters on July 3, 2012.
