ComingSoon.net’s Superhero Hype! has learned exclusively from a very reliable source that Spider-Man screenwriter David Koepp is in talks with Sony Pictures to write Spider-Man 4!
Our source tells us that the studio is really excited about Spider-Man 3 after having seen a first cut of the movie. Add to that the phenomenal reaction to the screenings of footage at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago and the momentum leading up to this point from last summer’s Comic-Con, which have sparked the studio to approach Koepp about penning the fourth film’s screenplay.
Koepp is not signed yet, but the studio is definitely moving forward with another installment.
Keopp recently finished the script for Indiana Jones 4 which received the green light from George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford. Besides the first Spider-Man movie, he has written such blockbusters as War of the Worlds, Jurassic Park, Panic Room, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible and Carlito’s Way.
The first two “Spider-Man” films earned $1.6 billion dollars total worldwide. Spider-Man 3 kicks-off the summer on May 4.
