Amazing Spider-Man 2 Writers Back for Third Film

The second one isn’t even out yet, but Sony has signed on the writers from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to return for the third film in the planned series of four.

Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner have agreed to write the screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3. Though how they’ll find the time I don’t know since Kurtzman and Orci are already pretty busy with writing the script for Star Trek 3 and producing the reboot of The Mummy. It looks like if you’re rebooting a franchise, these are the guys to call.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will hit theaters on April 18, 2014 in the UK and May 2, 2014 in the US. The third and fourth films are expected to be released on June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018 respectively. What do you think? Looking forward to the new films or do you think Sony should maybe calm down a little and wait and see how things work out before deciding on big decisions?
