The first installment of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN isn't even done shooting and already a writer is lined up for the sequel.

Of course this isn't anything unusual. Writers get hired for sequels before the movie comes out all the time. They didn't venture very far off the beaten path for a scribe either. Actually, they just re-hired the same guy.

James Vanderbilt (ZODIAC, THE LOSERS) will be penning the second installment of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. Yesterday, Vanderbilt had a meeting with Spider-Man filmmakers and studio execs to go over his outline for part two. They gave him the thumbs up and now it's time for Vanderbilt to put the ideas on paper. Back when Spider 4 was being planned with Sam Raimi, Vanderbilt was going to to write that script. They say he was chosen for the job because he was more focused on character detail rather than how to fit in special effects.

When Spidey 4 was dumped and a reboot came into play, they liked Vanderbilt so much they kept him.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is due to wrap mid-April with the final product to release July 3rd, 2012.

I didn't think the problem with Spiderman 3 was over-use of special effects, but focusing on too many characters. The first 2 spidermans are great, and even though this movie will make a lot of money and probably be good, it just feels too soon for a reboot for me. Nothing about the movie thus far has "wowed" me.

Sweet...

"more focused on character detail rather than how to fit in special effects." is exactly what this series (and pretty much every comic adaptation) needs. Being that he did Zodiac, I have high hopes for this, because that was a definitely a great movie.

This statement I like very much: "They say he was chosen for the job because he was more focused on character detail rather than how to fit in special effects." Hopefully it's true!

I just want to say before we gland-hand too much the man did write Zodiac, but he also wrote Basic, the Rashomo knock-off with John Travolta that I'm still a little angry at. I'm just saying because his name is on something doesn't make it golden. But yes, more character detail is what the super-hero genre needs. I think the first Iron Man got it pretty good though.

Mee!!

Im stoked for this. Im a huge andrew garfield fan ever since i saw him in the great Boy A. And i like what marc webb did with 500 days of summer. Ive loved the photos and costume look of the film so far. This could be better than the original.

I love Zodiac. It's one of my favroite movies of all time and The Losers was a good, fun action flick. I'm all for this guy writing the sequel to hopefully a great first Amazing Spider Man movie.

Yes, and I also appreciate the more character detail than special effects.
