Zac Efron would get more then 9 million dollars for his role of SpiderMan.

Zac Efron would replace Tobey Maguire in Spiderman, due to start shooting later this year and scheduled to hit cinemas in 2012.

A studio insider revealed: “After dumping Spidey, Tobey then came to the rescue by recommending that Zac should take over his role.”

Producers believe the 22-year-old, who has a huge teen following, will bring new fans to the Spider-Man series by playing the reluctant hero and his alter ego Peter Parker.

They are also believed to be considering reuniting Zac with his High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens, 21.

She is hotly tipped to replace Kirsten Dunst, 27, as Spider-Man’s love interest and the source added: “It would be a great coup to land her as well.

“The franchise would be revitalised and transformed by two of Hollywood’s most gifted and fast-rising young stars.”
