Spidey 4 Getting Another Rewrite

"They're making a FOURTH one?!"

Looks like James Vanderbilt's plans for back-to-back Spidey flicks aren't going as smoothly as he anticipated.

Going into its second round of rewrites, Gary Ross is taking a crack at the script for Spider-Man 4. Production starts early next year, and the movie will be released on May 6th, 2011. Both Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst (blargh) are returning to reprise their roles, and Sam "Drag Me To Hell" Raimi is directing.

Is this news? Not in the truest since of the word, but I've talked about the movie here before and figure I'd give you a little update on what's going on with the flick. I also find it interesting that they brought "A-list writer" Vanderbilt onto the project, he comes up with this master plan for a huge story spanning (at least) two movies, and now the studios don't really dig what he's cooked up for them. I have no idea what he had planned, but I can almost guarantee that it'll be better than Spider-Man 3.
