James Vanderbilt Already Writing ‘Spider-Man’ Sequel


I guess Marvel and Columbia are pretty confident that their upcoming Spider-Man franchise reboot is going to be a hit at the box office, because THR is reporting that the studio already has James Vanderbilt working on the script for a sequel!

It seems that 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.

Vanderbilt originally became involved with the Spider-Man franchise with Spider-Man 4, back when Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire were still interested in continuing. When the studio decided to go instead with a reboot, Vanderbilt stayed on-board to script that movie.

I guess that the studio must have been pretty happy with the script he delivered, if they’ve already commissioned a sequel. A reason to be hopeful that the movie won’t suck?
