‘Spider-Verse’ Co-Director Peter Ramsey To Direct ‘Love In Vain,’ His First Live-Action Feature


Peter Ramsey, co-director of Sony Picture Animation’s Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is moving into live action. He will direct Love in Vain, a biopic of blues legend Robert Johnson, for Paramount, according to Deadline.

Or rather, he’s moving back into live action. Ramsey began his career as a storyboard artist for live-action feature films, including Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Boyz n the Hood, Minority Report, Being John Malkovich, Fight Club, and Ang Lee’s Hulk. He worked on others, including the 1998 version of Godzilla, as a second-unit director. But Love in Vain will be his first as helmer.

Ramsey also directed Dreamworks’s Rise of the Guardians (2012), in the process becoming the first African-American to helm a tentpole cg animation feature for a major studio. As one of the three directors of last year’s Spider-Verse, he also became the first African-American to win an Oscar for best animated feature.
