Spider-Man 4, 5, and 6 writer named

by

James Vanderbilt has signed by Sony to write the fourth installment of the Spider-Man movie franchise.  Although that might seem like a big announcement for some, it’s kind of late news as Vanderbilt already turned in the first draft of the flick, with two other writers (David Lindsay-Abaire and Gary Ross) to do the rewrites.  The bigger news is he is also on board as the writer for movies five and six.

Spider-Man 4 is currently in pre-production, with a 2010 production date, so everything can be wrapped and the film in theaters by May 2011.
