'Spider-Man' Producer Laura Ziskin Dies at 61

"Spider-Man" producer Laura Ziskin died Sunday evening. She was 61 and had been battling breast cancer for seven years.

Ziskin was perhaps best known for her work on the "Spider-Man" franchise, which brought in over $1.5 billion worldwide, making her one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood.

So...wow...I feel a bit more depressed about this than any other actor, producer, and director that passed away in the past. Not that I didn't care about them, it's just I didn't know them too well. I didn't knew Laura Ziskin too well either, but I guess it's because I grew up watching these movies, and watched the behind the scenes over and over again when I got bored. And all those press conferences, and videos from Comic-Con having all the cast, director, and producers together. Brings back a lot of memories. We'll never forget you Laura, may you Rest In Piece.

More from Emma Stone on Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man & How She Prepped for Her Role!

MTV caught up with Emma Stone and Bryce Dallas Howard while they were promoting their new movie The Help to get their thoughts on Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. Stone currently just finished work on The Amazing Spider-Man as Gwen Stacy, and Howard portrayed Stacy in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3.



Stone: "He looks like Spider-Man, ya know? It's pretty exciting."

Howard: "I saw Andrew in a leaked photo, and he looked really good."


Emma Stone also let's us know how she prepared for the role of Gwen Stacy.

With so much buzz about the new Spider-Man film, it seems that Stone will be just as surprised as fans to see the flick.


"I've seen nothing, I promise. I've seen small action sequences for the 3-D, and it looked terrible," she joked. "I really haven't seen [anything]."

So what did Stone do to research the role of Gwen — besides leaning on Howard for her first-hand account, of course.

"I read a pretty comprehensive Death of the Stacys book ... and it's a really amazing book to learn the story of Captain Stacy and Gwen Stacy," she said. "And I've read a various amount of comics."

Face Of The Fan® is a Sony Pictures Entertainment initiative that lets moviegoers and TV viewers get involved with Sony Pictures’ projects by participating in online casting calls and contests—turning today’s fans into tomorrow’s stars™. The concept was launched in 2007, tied to Spider-Man 3, when two fans were chosen to bring Spider-Man news to the fans following the film’s website. In November 2010, Face Of The Fan began offering casting calls for various Sony Pictures Entertainment films, including such Screen Gems projects as Lakeshore Entertainment’s Underworld and Rainforest Film’s upcoming Think Like A Man, which is based on Steve Harvey’s national best-seller, Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man. The site also features contests in which winners can have an opportunity to appear on the red carpet at movie premieres, meet or interview talent, filmmakers, and producers, or even go on the sets of their favorite shows. Many exciting opportunities are available through Face Of The Fan®, and this program provides fans with a way to share their enthusiasm and get face to face with key decision-makers and talent.

A Columbia Pictures presentation of a Marvel Studios production, The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Rhys Ifans, is directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The film is produced by Laura Ziskin, Avi Arad, and Matt Tolmach.
