Sam Raimi Wants to Shoot Spider-Man 4 in Michigan February 2, 2009 6:41 pm

samraimi-020209The Oakland Press recently did an interview with Sam Raimi, where the Michigan native revealed that he may be coming back to the state to shoot scenes for Spider-Man 4.  Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Raimi is slated to begin production on “Spider-Man 4” in 2010, in fact and, he said, envisions shooting some of that movie in Michigan.

“I’ll be looking at Michigan for our second-unit photography on the new ‘Spider-Man’ film,” he confirmed.

The extensive infrastructure needed to crank out megabudget productions like the three “Spider-Man” movies he already has made has, for the most part, kept him in Hollywood, Raimi pointed out.

“Producers are always looking at the bottom line, and if they can get the same looking stuff somewhere else cheaper, they’re going to shoot there,” Rumble said.

Such was the case with “Spider-Man 3.”

“It was cheaper to shoot in Ohio because the streets we were shooting on had storefronts that looked a little bit more like New York than Detroit did,” Raimi explained. “But if the incentives Michigan has now had been in place, we would have had the money to adapt a set in Detroit.”

Spider-Man 4 is scheduled to hit theaters in 2011.
