The sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man doesn’t even hit theaters until next May, but Sony has already committed to an additional two films after that—where Mary Jane might, but probably won't be a dude—which pretty much ties up Andrew Garfield in comic-book movies through 2018. Still, that’s not preventing him from dabbling in some more independent fare on the side. He’s attached to star in Man Push Cart and Chop Shop director Ramin Bahrani’s next film, 99 Homes, continuing the director’s shift toward casting mainstream actors, after he worked with Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron on At Any Price. The film will find Garfield playing a man who loses his home, then winds up working for the corrupt real estate broker who took his house and continues to evict others. In other words, more uplifting optimism from Bahrani, and a definite change of pace from all the web-slinging for Garfield.
