House Bunny and Zombieland all
for Columbia Pictures. Commented the director,
"The chemistry between Andrew and Emma
was stunning and made Emma the clear choice.
At the heart of the story of Peter Parker
is not only the amazing Spider-Man but also

he has to do to get the girl. Andrew and
Emma will bring everything audiences expect
to these roles, but also make them their
own. Much to my surprise, it was fun to
find out that our choice for Gwen (Emma)
is also a natural blonde."
