"Seabiscuit" Director Reteams with Tobey Maguire for "Spider-Man 4" 


Gary Ross joins the creative team of "Spider-Man" for the fourth film in the franchise. The "Seabiscuit" director will work with his star, Tobey Maguire, again.

This time though, Ross will be taking charge of the script. "Spider-Man" franchise director Sam Raimi will return to helm.

Scriptwriter James Vanderbilt originally wrote "Spider-Man 4" and then David Lindsay-Abaire came in for rewrites. Now, Ross is handling all the writing work. But that's not a good sign, when a film has been rewritten so many times.

Still, Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios will move forward with the production early next year.

Ross is also rewriting and possibly directing Columbia's film about cyclist Lance Armstrong. The movie will focus on the cycling star's recovery from cancer to his triumphant victory of winning 7 Tour de France titles.
