Sony Pictures apparently has a wish list of contenders, most prominently James Cameron, David Fincher, and Wes Anderson. Michael Bay has also been rumored to step in.

Sony is looking to push the new Spider-Man into production later this year, with an eye toward releasing the film in 2012. The reason for such a long production period? Sources hint that the film could be made in 3-D.
