Sony Picks Writer For SPIDER-Sequel

Sony must have a lot of faith in their upcoming Spider-Man franchise reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man. The film is still more than a year away from hitting theaters and they’ve already hired writer James Vanderbilt to start working a script for a sequel.

Vanderbilt has been a part of the Spider-Man franchise for a while. He was originally brought on board when the studio was working with director Sam Raimi to develop a fourth installment in his popular iteration of the character, and was even tapped to start work on a fifth and sixth installment. After Raimi was forced off the film by Sony, Vanderbilt suck around and did the first drafts of the reboot that is currently in production with director Marc Webb.

In addition to his work on the Spider-franchise, Vanderbilt has also written the serial killer thriller Zodiac, last year’s comic book adaptation The Losers and the upcoming Total Recall remake.
