The Amazing Spider-Man doesn't even hit theaters until July 3, 2012, but Sony Pictures already has a writer for the sequel.  Guess they assume the flick is going to do well?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the proposed sequel has James Vanderbilt returning as screenwriter.

Vanderbilt provided the initial draft of the upcoming film and it was updated by Alvin Sargent and Steve Kloves.  Now Sony wants Vanderbilt back for the next film in the new Spiderman franchise.
