Trying to avoid the strangeness to be seen in Spider-Man 3, Columbia Pictures is making sure to start fresh (and strong) from the drawing board up. The studio has picked up Pulitzer Prize-winner scribe David Lindsay-Abaire to write the script for Spider-Man 4.
Spider-Man 4 Gets Scribe
Well, they don't have him just yet, but they are in final negotiations with Lindsay-Abaire to write the sequel's script. The scribe's most recent project was Rabbit Hole, for which he won a Pulitzer Prize.
While neither plot details nor villain choices have been disclosed, Sam Raimi, Tobey Maguire and even Kirsten Dunst will be returning for Spider-Man's latest adventure. By choosing David Lindsay-Abaire to write the next Spider-Man installment -- one had already been written by James Vanderbilt -- the studio is showing their renewed commitment to focusing on the characters after that practice flew out the window in the latest sequel.
