Hannibal Buress Joins ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Hannibal Buress is joining the cast of Sony and Marvel’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

Tom Holland will play Peter Parker in the reboot with Marisa Tomei taking on Aunt May. Michael Keaton is also on board for the role of a villain. Other actors who have joined the cast over the last several weeks include Logan Marshall-Green, Donald Glover, Zendaya and Tony Revolori.

Sony and Marvel had no comment.

Jon Watts is on board to direct with Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige producing. Plot details are still being heavily guarded as is Buress’ character. “Vacation” directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein penned the script.

Production is expected to start this summer with the film hitting theaters on July 7, 2017.

Buress, a stand-up comedian, has recently shifted gears to film, with upcoming roles in some of next year’s more anticipated comedies. First he has “The Masterpiece,” opposite Dave and James Franco, which is a movie about the making of what is widely considered the worst film of all-time, “The Room.” He will follow that up with Dwayne Johnson’s reboot of “Baywatch,” which bows next summer. He also lent his voice to Illumination’s “The Secret Life of Pets.”

Buress is repped by WME and 3 Arts Entertainment.
