James Vanderbilt was writing SPIDER-MAN 4 for Sam Raimi before that project went belly-up.
Vanderbilt transitioned into Marc Webb's reboot of the franchise, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, becoming a primary scripter on the new movie, which isn't due in theaters until next Summer.
Even thought its release is over a year away, Sony is already laying the groundwork for another installment of the Webb-verse Spidey, by putting Vanderbilt to work on a sequel screenplay.
Prior to being ensnared by Spider-Man’s web, Vanderbilt, repped by WME and UFUSE Management, wrote Zodiac, David Fincher’s serial killer tale starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. He recently worked on a polish of Columbia’s remake of Total Recall, which is slated to shoot later this year.
...reports THR, which offers a few more details on the matter HERE.
I wonder if TURN OFF THE DARK will have officially opened by the time AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, or whatever it'll be called, hits screens?
THR's pic of Vanberbilt makes him look like Tim Curry.
