Music editor Jim Henrikson has revealed in a recent interview with SCOREcast Online that James Horner is in talks to score the upcoming comic book adaptation reboot of The Amazing Spider-Man. While the assignment has not been confirmed to us yet, Henrikson who has been Horner’s primary music editor over the last two decades said that the assignment “is pretty well set” at the time of the interview (which was conducted right before the recording sessions of the historical epic Cristiada in May). Check back for an update on this site once we get a confirmation. The Amazing Spider-Man is directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) and stars Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Rhys Ifans as The Lizard. Martin Sheen, Sally Field and Denis Leary are co-starring. The movie will portay Peter Parker as he is developing his super powers in high school. The film marks Horner’s first Hollywood studio assignment since last summer’s The Karate Kid, which shares the same studio with the Spider-Man reboot. The movie is next summer’s big holiday tentpole release over the Independence Day weekend and is set to open on July 3, 2012 by Sony Pictures.

As previously reported, Horner’s other upcoming projects include Cristiada and Jean-Jacques Annaud’s Black Gold.
