Sony Hates "The Amazing Spiderman"
(latino-review.com) Sometimes there are legitimate reasons for rewrites and other times it just seems like someone (director, producer, etc.) wants thier own tastes added to the screenplay. Well, that isn’t the case with The Amazing Spider-man 2, or whatever they’re going to call it.
Badass Digest reported Sony’s reasons today. Apparently they hate The Amazing Sipder-man. Yep, the suits think its terrible and they don’t want they guy who wrote it to write the next installment.
So why did they hire Orci and Kurtzman? Very simple: They write hit movies. Just take a look at they’re resume. It includes movies like the Transformers franchise, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible III.
Where does this leave The Amazing Spider-man director Mark Webb? Who knows? If the movie is as bad as Sony seems to think it is, it can’t solely be blamed on the script, can it? I would think Webb bears some responsibility.
Or course, none of this means anything if the movie is a hit, which it probably will be. At this point I think it’s pretty safe to say Spider-man is critic proof. Even the much derided Spider-man 3 grossed over $300 million domestically.
