Peter Parker is going back to high school when the next
Spider-Man hits theaters in the summer of 2012.
Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios announced they are
moving forward with a film based on a script by James Vanderbilt that
focuses on a teenager grappling with both contemporary human problems and
amazing super-human crises.
According to Risky Business Blog the new movie will be
based the Ultimate Spider-Man comics by Brian Michael Bendis and
Mark Bagley instead of the original 1960s Stan Lee comics.
The new chapter in the
Spider-Man franchise produced by Columbia, Marvel Studios and Avi Arad
and Laura Ziskin, will have a new cast and filmmaking team. Spider-Man
4 was to have been released in 2011, but had not yet gone into
“Now everything begins anew,” said Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures, who has
served as the studio’s chief production executive since the beginning of
(500) Days of Summer director Marc Webb will
direct the Spider-man reboot.
Audiences apparently like seeing the same movie more
than once which is why we are being treated to yet another "origin" tale.
