Columbia is playing for keeps and betting big when it comes to their new "The Amazing Spider-Man" movie that they have already begun working on a sequel.
James Vanderbilt, who penned the first movie had a meeting with the Spider-Man filmmakers and studio execs yesterday outlining his take, getting a thumbs up, and will now begin writing. Columbia decided on Vanderbilt because of his character-driven approach rather than a focus on special effects.
"The Amazing Spider-Man", which is scheduled to wrap its Los Angeles portion by mid-April, stars Andrew Garfield as the titular hero and is being directed by Marc Webb. Columbia has scheduled a July 3, 2012 release for the 3D movie.
