Los Angeles: The forthcoming Spider-Man movie starring Andrew Garfield as the web-slinging hero has been titled `The Amazing Spider-Man`.

Columbia Pictures has confirmed the title and the release date of the project written by James Vanderbilt, Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves, reported MTV online.

The movie will hit theatres on July 3 next year and will include stars like actress Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Sally Field and Martin Sheen.

The 27-year-old British actor recently said that he was nervous about the project which previously starred actor Tobey Maguire in the lead role.

The Marc Webb-directed movie, a prequel to the previous Spider-Man films is currently being shot with the `Social Network` star in the lead role.

"I`m very, very excited and nervous about `Spider-Man` - I`m working hard to make sure I don`t mess it up-physically, mentally, emotionally. It means as much to me as it does to everyone else. I can objectively look at myself and be like, `You better not screw this up man. I`m going to be so tensed with you if you do," he added.
