Amazing Spider-Man 2 Hires Screenwriters, Sets Release Date

by at . Comments

Although a first draft of the script for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was written by James Vanderbilt, Sony has hired Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) to rewrite it.

The studio has also said that the film will go into production in 2013 for a release date of May 2, 2014. Our first Marc Webb-directed foray into the webbed wonder's world, The Amazing Spider-Man, arrives July 3.

"We grew up as huge Spider-Man fans," Kurtzman and Orci said in a statement. "To us, the opportunity to work on this film is akin to being handed the Holy Grail. We love the direction Sony and the filmmakers are taking the Peter Parker/Spider-Man mythology and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this legendary franchise."

Peter? I know things have been difficult lately and I'm sorry about that. I think I know what you're feeling. Ever since you were a little boy, you've been living with so many unresolved things.

Miss Ritter: Don't make promises you can't keep.
Peter Parker: Yeah but those are the best kind.
