Spider-Man 4 Looking for a New Writer

Source: Empire

July 30, 2007

Back in January, we broke the news that David Koepp, screenwriter of the first Spider-Man, was in talks to pen the fourth installment, but now Sam Raimi tells Empire they are still searching for a writer.

"I want to help contribute to the production," he said. "I don't know if I'll just be a producer on it but if I can work with the writer in such a way so that directing would be right for me, I don't know. We've had our first meeting on Spider-Man 4 and we're looking for the writer."

Will he come back as the director? Hopefully we'll find out soon.

Will the Spider-Man movie franchise stay alive?

Special thanks to The Hollywood Reporter for the heads up.

At some point within the next two weeks, producer Laura Ziskin and the top brass of Sony Pictures Entertainment will sit down together for the first time since "Spider-Man 3" opened May 4 to discuss the franchise's future.

It's a crucial meeting, all the more so because director Sam Raimi will be there. And Raimi, who has sent contradictory messages about his future plans, might at last indicate whether he'll helm the next installment.

"It would be great to have everybody back," Ziskin says. "But no one is going to sign on the dotted line until we have a script. These are the questions being discussed now. The one thing we have answered definitively is: There will be more 'Spider-Man' movies. We just haven't answered what shape they will come in and (Sony) hasn't given us a release date."

The upcoming meeting "will be the first step in a process," Ziskin adds. "'Spider-Man' will continue; I can't tell you every person who will be involved."

It goes without saying just how critical the "Spider-Man" franchise is to the studio's bottom line; at press time, the franchise had netted upwards of $2 billion in boxoffice receipts, not to mention home video revenue and other income from ancillary ventures. But it is hardly unique in today's Hollywood.

So will there be a Spider-Man 4? Well stick around and we'll find out.

Transformers, FF2 and Spidey 3 at the Intl Box Office

Variety has posted an update on the international box office, which was dominated this weekend by Shrek the Third. Here are the results for Transformers, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (which added $9 million domestically for a total of $114.8 million) and Spider-Man 3:

But there was plenty of international green for tentpoles as "Transformers" debuted ahead of its U.S. launch with a stellar $34.7 million at 2,261 in 10 territories and "Live Free or Die Hard" shot down a solid $30.7 million at 3,583 in day and date openings in 35 markets...

Paramount also saw stalwart numbers from "Transformers," which logged the top per-location average with $15,351, as the disrib opted for playing into local holidays plus distancing itself from Warner's mid-July launch of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix." South Korea sparked to "Transformers" in the fourth biggest launch ever with $12.4 million at 549 while the Michael Bay pic posted the best 4-day launch ever in Singapore with $1.7 million.

"Transformers" led in all 10 of its markets, including Australia with $6.7 million, Italy with $3.6 million, Taiwan with $3 million and the Philippines with $2.1 million; in eight of those, it topped "War of the Worlds," which rang up a stellar $357 million overseas in 2005. "Transformers" moves into a dozen more markets next weekend, including Russia, Spain and Scandinavia.

Fox's "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" also showed enough traction to remain on track to equal the international performance by its predecessor, which took in $175 million two years ago. "Surfer" landed with $15.2 million at 6,200, pushing the cume to $81.2 million, as Mexico kicked in $3.3 million in its second frame and Brazil launched with a beefy $2.9 million; it opens in August in France, Korea and Spain.

Sony's "Spider-Man 3," which fulfilled forecasts as it jump-started summer biz overseas, ensnared $1 million to become the 10th largest international film with $548.9 million and the 11th biggest globally with $883 million.
