"Alvin Sargent, who has worked on every Spider-Man movie, has been brought back to polish the script for Sony's Spider-Man reboot.
The veteran screenwriter is working off a script by James Vanderbilt. Sargent also wrote a draft for Spider-Man 4 before that movie was scrapped.
The Marc Webb-directed reboot is scheduled to start shooting later this year for a July 3, 2012 release in 3D and 2D theaters.
Heat Vision says that Sargent 'has become the studio's go-to guy for punching up weighty scenes. The new Spider-Man is rumored to be more emotionally anchored and realistic than the previous movies. Word is that Peter Parker will be a 17-year-old high school kid struggling with shifting hormones and an outsider status. And let's not forget the death of his uncle.'"
What would be cool is if they at least brought one actor back from the original Spider-Man to play a part in the new film. Like Leonard Nimoy in the new Star Trek.
