Gary Ross to rewrite Spider-Man 4

Gary Ross has come aboard to rewrite the script for the fourth Spider-Man movie.


Sam Raimi will once again direct the project that will go into production early next year.


The Spider-Man 4 script was originally written by James Vanderbilt, and then rewritten by David Lindsay-Abaire.


Ross has previously directed Spidey lead – Tobey Maguire – in Seabiscuit and Pleasantville.


The fourth installment is scheduled for a May 2011 release.
