Sally Field and Martin Sheen are reportedly in talks with Columbia Studios to star in Marc Webb’s hotly-anticipated Spider-Man reboot.

Sheen is circling the role of Uncle Ben, while Field is interested in portraying Aunt May.

If their casting is finalised, they would star opposite Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Rhys Ifans.

Production on the as-yet-untitled Spider-Man reboot is set to commence in December, with a release date scheduled for July 3, 2012.
