Yelchin Is Spider-Man Finalist

Anton Yelchin, Star Trek XI‘s Chekov, is on the final list of candidates to play Peter Parker in Sony’s Spider-Man.

Yelchin joins a list of contenders including: Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot), Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) and Alden Ehrenreich (Tetro). Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince) and Michael Angerano (Lords of Dogtown) are also on the final list.
