Spider-Man scribe snared for sequel


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Do you think Sony/Coljmbia has faith in what James Vanderbilt was able to do with the anticipated Spider-Man reboot currently being filmed by director Marc Webb?

The screenwriter received a serious vote off confidence when the studio recently hired him to begin penning a planned sequel … even before “The Amazing Spider-Man” wraps or reaches theaters.

Vanderbilt “had a meeting with the Spider-Man filmmakers and studio execs yesterday outlining his take, getting a thumbs up, and will now begin writing,” THR reports.

The current production is expected to wrap its filming in mid-April. It stars “Social Network” collaborator Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as his love interest, Gwen Stacy.

Webb’s “Amazing Spider-Man” will be in theaters on July 3, 2012. Now we’re left to wonder if it will conclude with a tease for the second movie, or possibly set up a trilogy like Sam Raimi recently attempted.
