The ShoWest festivities continued last night with the big award ceremony where the celebs came out to support their films and the fabulous theater owners that play them for us to enjoy (see one doesn't work without the other). Top honors this year include, Steve Carell, Don Cheadle, and Kirsten Dunst -- check the full list of honorees here. As the theaters are anticpating making bank on Spider-Man 3 this May, they were drilling Dunst to know about the chance to score box office gold with a Spider-Man 4. Here's her response:
"Well, I think Sam has dedicated so much of his life, like more than ten years, to the 'Spider-Man' franchise with so much passion and love, the man is burnt out at this time," she told reporters. "I think he needs a long vacation to put his creativity towards something else and then maybe we'll revisit it. I told Sam that we should do a 'Spider-Man 4' that's completely low budget--'Evil Dead' style--where Mary Jane has eight children with very little special effects and then we'll get a whole new audience, we'd make a lot of money because it wouldn't cost as much and everyone would go see it."
When asked about the rumors that Sony is moving forward with a fourth movie with or without Raimi, Dunst was surprised that someone would even suggest it. "Do they want to give Sam Raimi a heart attack? That's evil. Sorry, that's not happening any time soon. I would just say no for Sam's sake so that he can have a break. We would all do it together because Sam, Tobey and I are a team now, but there's no way it's going to happen very soon. I just can't imagine that. We don't have the story to tell right now."
We bet there would be lots of volunteers for screenwriters to keep the sequels coming. I can't wait for the next Spidey movie and would hate to think this is the end.
