A couple of months ago we learned that The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb might not be able to direct the sequel to the film, but it looks like he's officially on board!
I was hoping that Webb would make it back for The Amazing Spider-Man 2! I guess he was able to work out whatever those contract issues with FOX he was having.
Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are both set to return and reprise their roles, and Sony Pictures wants to start production on the film next year. Alex Kurtzman andRoberto Orci were hired earlier this year to rewrite James Vanderbilt's script, and it already set to released ate for May 2nd, 2014.
Webb is currently developing a couple of other film projects such as Age of Rage for Fox Searchlight, as well as Allan Loeb's script The Only Living Boy in New York. I guess these project are just going to have to wait a little longer.
I thought Webb did a great job with the first film, I enjoyed it, and I'm sure he's got some awesome things in store for the sequel! Are you happy to see Webb back to direct the sequel?
