We think The Amazing Spider-Man is looking pret-ty fantastic from the previews, but apparently Sony did not think the writer behind the film could handle a sequel.
The studio has hired Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who wrote the last Star Trek and two Transformers movies, to rewrite James Vanderbilt's screenplay for the next installment of the rebooted franchise.
Both are as excited to write it as we are excited to watch it, as the duo said in a statement:
“We grew up as huge Spider-Man fans so, to us, the opportunity to work on this film is akin to being handed the Holy Grail. We love the direction Sony and the filmmakers are taking the Peter Parker/Spider-Man mythology and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this legendary franchise.”
We have to wait until we see the first one before we can really start thinking about what we'd like to see in the sequel, but whatever it is, we hope these guys pull it off!
Don't let Spidey down, dudes! His character and all of the fan boys that look up to him are counting on you two!
