As Felicia Hardy in Spider-Man 4, Too expensive?!

It was reported on December 8, 2009 that Anne Hathaway was up for the role of Felicia Hardy in the upcoming superhero film, Spider-Man 4. Felicia Hardy would not have transformed into the Black Cat, as in the comics; instead, Raimi’s Felicia was expected to become a brand-new superpowered figure called the Vulturess.

On January 5, 2010, it was reported that Spider-Man 4 would be re-written and Anne Hathaway would not appear in the film, as she was "too expensive".

Originally, Spider-Man 4 was set to begin filming in February, then in March, then late March/early April, but now the studio decided production will halt indefinitely. Sony insiders told Finke, “We will be extending the production hiatus on the film. The studio is firmly committed to this franchise but, for us, the script must come first.”

Even after the script passed through the hands of Jamie Vanderbilt, David Lindsay-Abaire and Gary Ross, Raimi reportedly hated it. Raimi and Sony are currently anxiously waiting for a rewrite from Spider-Man 2 and 3 scribe Alvin Sargent. Sargent’s expediency will dictate the film’s release, but it’s widely understood that there’s no chance it’ll be ready by May 5th, 2011, the date that’s belonged to Spider-Man 4 since September 2008. Sony still has its fingers crossed for a Summer 2011 release, but the coveted first weekend of the summer will likely be snatched up by another potential blockbuster.

The release date isn’t the only thing that’s been dropped, so has Anne Hathaway. Raimi is still adamant on having John Malkovich play the villain, so he’s likely to stick around, but Hathaway’s price tag is way too hefty. An insider mentioned that the film doesn’t really need such a big star anyway.
