Vacation screenwriters in talks to pen script for Spider-Man reboot

07.16.2015

At this point we know that Tom Holland (THE IMPOSSIBLE) will be our new web-slinger and that COP CAR director John Watts will be taking the helm of SPIDER-MAN, but who will Marvel/Sony get to write the re-re-introduction to the iconic character? Deadline reports that John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, writers and directors of the upcoming VACATION reboot, are in talks to pen the script which will bring Spidey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were previously on the SPIDER-MAN director's short-list, but despite not getting that gig Marvel obviously thought highly enough of the pair to offer them another job on the film. The duo's previous script work includes HORRIBLE BOSSES 2, THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE, and CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2. Not exactly the resume which would lead me to say "get them on Spider-Man right this instant!" but I suppose Marvel and Sony know what they're doing.

We don't know much about what kind of film SPIDER-MAN will be, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently commented that they were using John Hughes' films as a big inspiration for the tone of the new SPIDER-MAN:

It’s the soap opera in high school, and those supporting characters, that are interesting. Just as we hadn’t seen a heist movie in a long time, or a shrinking movie in a long time, we haven’t seen a John Hughes movie in a long time. Not that we can make a John Hughes movie - only John Hughes could - but we’re inspired by him, and merging that with the superhero genre in a way we haven’t done before excites us...Particularly at that age, in high school, everything feels like life or death. The tests feel like life or death. Coming home from being out with your friends seemed like life or death.

SPIDER-MAN is set for a July 28, 2017 release but the character should make his first appearance in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR on May 6, 2016.

Why do studios still think we want high school drama Spidey?

Nobody wants to see Spider-Man going through puberty. We wanted him as an established character, as a photographer for the daily bugle and old enough to go out for drinks with Tony Stark.

They really messed up but I think it is more Sony's fault. It will be weird to see Spider-man be just a 13 year old kid up next to people like Ant-Man, Cap. America and Thor and then be on his own in shitty movies run by Sony.

I feel like this version is going to have a lot of tweets and hashtags. While I'm sure it will be an enjoyable film, brining on young writers only reinforces Marvel's plan to make this really feel like a high school film.

They say if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. So with that said.....

I just hope that the storyline doesn't turn too juvenile then since most of the films they have worked on have been in that type of material.

I understand the John Hughes comparison, but I just a want this new film to feel like a good coming of age story while also being a good superhero film at the same time.

That's one of the many problems I had with the reboot. I hated the portrayal and writing of Garfield's Peter Parker and therefore didn't give a shit when it came to his Spider Man
