Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and J.J. Totah have been added to the cast.

Spider-Man’s web has ensnared the talents of relative newcomers Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and J.J. Totah.

The trio have joined the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony and Marvel Studios’s reboot of the franchise that is heading towards a shooting start later in June in Atlanta.

Character details were not disclosed.

Jon Watts is directing the movie that stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in a story that takes the character back to his high-school roots.

Donald Glover and Logan Marshall-Green boarded the project last week, joining a list that includes among others, Marisa Tomei, Zendaya and Robert Downey Jr.

Amara played a teenaged Melissa McCarthy in the comedienne’s spring comedy The Boss, and recently wrapped Fox Searchlight’s Wilson opposite Woody Harrelson. She also finished shooting The Tale opposite Laura Dern.

Lendeborg Jr. made his feature debut starring in The Land, a gritty coming-of-age drama that premiered at Sundance and was snapped by IFC Films, which set it for a limited released July 29.

Totah has appeared in shows such as Jessie and Glee but made his feature debut in the much-buzzed Sundance cancer comedy Other People which stars Jesse Plemons and Molly Shannon and will be released September 9.

Amara is repped by Carson Adler Agency, Mosaic, and Lichter Grossman. Lendeborg is repped by Momentum Talent Agency, Mosaic, and Steve Warren and Dan Fox. Totah is repped by WME and Trilogy Talent.
