We reported a few weeks ago that Columbia Pictures president Matt Tolmach said that the webbed wonder needed to get back to great storytelling and now they've brought in one of their previous screenwriters for the new film. Heat Vision Blog is reporting that Columbia has brought on Spider-Man 2 screenwriter Alvin Sargent for some work on the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot's script.
It was said that Sargent is doing a "production polish" on the original script written by James Vanderbilt as the studio is rapidly getting ready to start shooting later this year, despite the fact that casting hasn't started yet. It was also said that Sargent did uncredited script work on the first Spider-Man along with co-writing Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3.
We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot as soon as more information becomes available.
