Spider-Man 5 And 6 Screenplays Already Being Written?

Illustration for article titled Spider-Man 5 And 6 Screenplays Already Being Written?

Spider-Man 4 isn't even close to filming until next year, and already Sony is getting ready to crank out the fifth and a sixth films.

James Vanderbilt, who wrote the first draft of the Spider-Man 4 screenplay, has been asked to pen Spider-Man 5 and 6 by Sony. According to the trades, many of the ideas that Vanderbilt had for the fourth film, which were later edited out in rewrites, will be incorporated into the two new filims, which will feature a two-part storyline.

And yet, there is no real plan for either of these additional movies to be made. And we'd really like to see the look on Tobey Maguire's face when they asked him to stay on for an additional two movies, even if they do attempt to film them back-to-back.

Sony has to do plan this way or else they lose the rights to "Spider-Man" and they go back to Marvel.

Even if Spider-Man 4 flops, they would be planning this way.

But more on this:

Lets just say Spider-MAn 5 is going to be a reboot of the series, because it is the only way Sony will be able to keep up the rights, and keep the budget under control, and control future actors and directors. Thus why they are planning 5 and 6 together.

4 is going to be the end of the Raimi Saga.(Unless of course it makes $900 million).
