Gary Ross has come aboard to rewrite the script for “Spider-Man 4,” the Sam Raimi-directed film that Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios will put into production early next year.
Tobey Maguire has top lined both of the films Ross has directed (Pleasantville, Seabiscuit), the “Spider-Man 4” deal should come as no surprise.
The “Spider-Man 4” script was originally written by James Vanderbilt, and then rewritten by David Lindsay-Abaire.
I think this is good news because I usually tend to enjoy most of his films. I am alittle worried about the number of rewrites the film is getting. It makes it seem like Sony and the producers just don't know what to do with the web slinger. Here's hoping Ross is the last person to rewrite the script so we can finally get this bad boy in production early next year.
