Spiderman 4

By Borys Kit – Hollywood Reporter

Gary Ross has been brought on board to do a rewrite on Columbia’s “Spider-Man 4.”
Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire are back as director and star, respectively, as are series producers Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad.
Ross now joins James Vanderbilt (“Zodiac”) and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire on the list of high-profile writers who have been working on the project.
The move also puts Ross back to work with Maguire, with whom he worked on his directorial vehicles “Pleasantville” and “Seabiscuit.” The two were also working on “Tokyo Suckerpunch,” a drama set up at Columbia; that project is now on hold as Ross tackles another writing project, Columbia’s Lance Armstrong biopic.
