Gary Ross co-writing Spider-Man 4
A writer has finally been tapped to rewrite the Spider-Man 4 screenplay. With all these rewrites going on, I wonder how much the final draft will differ from that of the first. It's my personal opinion that Venom should probably be left out of this one...but will they try to introduce Carnage into the franchise?
Gary Ross has been brought on board to do a rewrite on Columbia's "Spider-Man 4."
Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire are back as director and star, respectively, as are series producers Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad.
Ross now joins James Vanderbilt ("Zodiac") and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire on the list of high-profile writers who have been working on the project.
The move also puts Ross back to work with Maguire, with whom he worked on his directorial vehicles "Pleasantville" and "Seabiscuit." The two were also working on "Tokyo Suckerpunch," a drama set up at Columbia; that project is now on hold as Ross tackles another writing project, Columbia's Lance Armstrong biopic.
Ross is repped by CAA.
