Sony Gets Writer for "Spider-Man 5" and "Spider-Man 6!"  


"Spider-Man" will not begin production until early next year, but Sony Pictures has already set a writer for "Spider-Man 5" and "Spider-Man 6."

James Vanderbilt, the guy who gave us "Zodiac," is going to write the fifth and sixth installments. He was the first writer on "Spider-Man 4" but apparently, director Sam Raimi wanted more so he brought "Rabbit Hole" playwright David Lindsay-Abaire for rewrites. Now, Gary Ross is rewriting the script.

According to Variety, "Raimi didn't embrace all of Vanderbilt's ideas, but execs at Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios have."

Ooooh, a web of intrigue! Drama between Raimi and Sony about scripts?

Well, it's unclear whether Raimi, Tobey Maguire, and Kirsten Dunst will be back. But Sony is confident that if the principal cast and Raimi do not return, they will use Vanderbilt's script for a franchise reboot!
