‘Nice Guys’ Actress Angourie Rice Joins ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

“The Nice Guys” actress Angourie Rice has joined Marvel-Sony’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” opposite Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei and Michael Keaton.

Jon Watts is directing from a script written by “Vacation” helmers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige are producing.

Other actors who have joined the cast over the last several weeks include Abraham Attah, Michael Mando, Hannibal Buress, Logan Marshall-Green, Donald Glover, Zendaya and Tony Revolori.

Plot details are still guarded as is Rice’s character. Holland is playing Peter Parker and Tomei will portray Aunt May while Keaton is on board for the role of a villain.

Production has started in Atlanta with the film — the second reboot of the “Spider-Man” franchise — hitting theaters on July 7, 2017. Holland appeared as Spider-Man for the first time in Marvel-Disney’s “Captain America: Civil War.”

The 15-year-old Rice starred in Shane Black’s “The Nice Guys” as the daughter of Ryan Gosling’s character, portraying a precocious adolescent who tags along as he searches for a missing woman. The Australian native also starred in “Nowhere Boys: The Book of Shadows” and in “Jasper Jones” opposite Hugo Weaving and Toni Collette.

Rice is repped by WME and Catherine Poulton Management in Australia.
