Hilary Duff for Spider-Man role?

Hilary Duff is in the running for a role in the 'Spider-Man' reboot.

The 'Cheaper By The Dozen' actress was seen with a script entitled 'Spider-Man' with a character called 'Girl' highlighted, The Globe and Mail newspaper reports.

If the 22-year-old beauty is auditioning for the lead female role in the superhero movie, it is believed she would be up against Emma Roberts, Imogen Poots and Ophelia Lovibond for the role.

However, it has previously been claimed the new movie - which sees British actor Andrew Garfield take on the role of Peter Parker, previously played by Tobey Maguire - would not feature Mary Jane Watson, the lead female previously portrayed by Kirsten Dunst.

Hilary recently appeared in 'Gossip Girl' in 2009, but has a number of movies rumoured to be coming up in 2011, including 'Dolphin's Tale' and 'The Gift Horse'.

She is also working on 'The Story of Bonnie and Clyde' alongside Thora Birch, which is due for release later this year.
