He starred in Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man' ten years ago, but it seems James Franco has something of an uncertain opinion on the latest film adaptation of the comic book character's adventures.
Speaking about 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' which stars Andrew Garfield, the 34-year-old said: "They could've strayed a little bit more from the original. It's like... why.
"Guess they made a lot of money. OK, congrats. But good for them. Sam and I moved on, we made Oz."

Franco made the blunt comments during an interview with MTV recently, and they no doubt left Garfield and his girlfriend Emma Stone feeling a little miffed.
Garfield plays Peter Parker in the 2012 film, while Stone took on the role of his love interest Gwen Stacy.
The pair are set to star in Marc Webb's sequel, which is due out in 2014, and Dane DeHaan will play Harry Osborn - the character that Franco portrayed.
Meanwhile, Franco is gearing up to promote 'Oz The Great And Powerful' which hits cinemas in March.
