Spider-Man 4 Still Needs a Screenwriter

Koepp's Spidey sense not tingling.

by | August 8, 2007 | Comments

This is just a tidbit of an item, but if you’ve been waiting with bated breath to find out who will be scripting the inevitable Spider-Man 4, it’s an important one. Well, actually, we still don’t know who’ll be writing it — but IGN Movies is reporting on who won’t be.

Recent reports have placed original Spider-Man screenwriter David Koepp in talks to pen the series’ fourth installment, but sources are now saying that Koepp doesn’t have time for the project, as he’s already slated to direct the Ricky Gervais/Greg Kinnear project Ghost Town. This can be seen as something of a setback, especially after Sam Raimi recently went on record as being open to direct the right Spidey script, but it may end up helping force Sony’s hand sooner than later — without ready commitments from the trilogy’s director and stars, the studio may just opt to clean the slate and start over with a cheaper cast and crew.
