Next Spider-Man film to shoot exterior scenes in Cleveland

CLEVELAND (AP) _ Watch out for Spider-Man on the city's trademark Terminal Tower skyscraper.

``Spider-Man 3,'' starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, will shoot exterior scenes next month, the Greater Cleveland Film Commission announced Wednesday.

Cleveland won out over New York City, where it's more expensive to shut down streets.

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission landed the Spider-Man filming in part by offering free soundstage space at the city's convention center.

A small second-unit crew will film action shots that don't involve the entire cast. It is doubtful that Maguire and Dunst will be involved in the shooting, which is expected to last 10 days.

Cleveland's lower skyline shouldn't be a problem in creating a New York-style look, said Alan Tuskes, who works in film special effects. The shorter Cleveland skyscrapers can be extended using computer-generated images, he said.

``Spider-Man 3,'' directed by Sam Raimi, is set to premiere in May 2007.
