Spider-Man

Sony and Marvel Studios cast Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man a few weeks back. It was also announced then that the movie would be directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car), though it wasn’t clear if he would also pen the script.

Previous reports said that Sony had met with a team of writers during their search for a director. Now it appears that they have settled on the Vacation reboot writing and directing team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein to pen the script for the rebooted Spider-Man franchise.

THR was the first to report on the news. Ironically, Daley and Goldstein were among the finalists to direct the Spider-Man reboot before Sony decided to hire Watts. One thing is clear though, both Sony and Marvel agreed that the pair had the best take on the Webslinger.

Unlike previous Spider-Man film franchises, the reboot is said to center on a much younger Peter Parker. Producer Kevin Feige said that the film would be John Hughes-esque and be set in high school with Parker attempting to find the balance between being a high school student and a superhero.

Here’s what Feige said about the reboot’s setting and tone earlier this year,

“We want to play with Spider-Man in the high school years because frankly there’ve been five Spider-Man films and the amazing thing about it is, even though there’ve been five Spider-Man films, there are so many things from the comics that haven’t been done yet.”

Daley and Goldstein’s credits include both Horrible Bosses films, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs.

Though Sony and Marvel were notably absent at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, it was confirmed that Marisa Tomei would play Aunt May.

Spider-Man is scheduled to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War, which opens in theaters on May 6, 2016. Based on that, we can surmise that the character is an already established hero in the MCU. The new movie (rumored to be titled either Spider-Man: The New Avenger or The Spectacular Spider-Man) is scheduled to be released on July 28, 2017.
