According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chronicle star Dane DeHaan is currently being considered to play the role of Peter Parker’s best friend (and soon to be enemy) sharing the top of the list with Alden Ehrenreich and Brady Corbet.
The news shows that the role is still a work in progress, as DeHaan’s somewhat lithe physique contradicts the original reports that the Harry Osborn role was written for a more muscular, and athletic looking actor. According to new info, the Harry Osborn part is now retooled into something a little darker and a little less wholesome.
DeHaan being on top of Sony’s list is not surprising, as he effectively portrayed a young, sexually repressed teenager with an abusive father who was suddenly given the powers of a god in Chronicle. Assuming that his schedule is open, there’s no reason why the young actor shouldn’t sign up.
