Access Hollywood reports that Andrew Garfield signed a new deal for “The Amazing Spider-Man” sequel on Friday. Producers were driven to create another Spiderman movie by the incredible success that the recent superhero production registered at the box office.
Critics never expected “The Amazing Spider-Man” to draw so many viewers considering that actor Tobey Maguire was replaced by Andrew Garfield. Nevertheless, “The Amazing Spider-Man” was one of the most requested superhero movies this summer. As a consequence, a new deal was signed between Andrew Garfield and Columbia Pictures on Friday for an upcoming sequel of the movie.
Based on the release provide by the studio, the production will start at the beginning of 2013. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinker’s screenplay was selected for the new sequel. However, the initial idea belonged to James Vanderbilt who created the first draft of the screenplay. The installment of the next “Spider-Man” will be produced by Avia Arad and Matt Tolmach.
Fans who were eagerly expecting to see Andrew Garfield as Spiderman will have to wait at least one year because the movie was set to hit theaters on May 2, 2014. The 3D format and the high-quality effects that Columbia Pictures has prepared for the new motion picture will most likely live up to fans’ expectations.
Emma Stone was selected to play Andrew’s partner in the 2012 production, but the studio hasn’t revealed whether the actress will star in the 2013 sequel, as well, or not. The release stated that the actress hasn’t signed a deal yet, but that she is in talks for her role as Gwen Stacy.
According to box office reports, “The Amazing Spider-Man” gathered $261 million from ticket sales registered across U.S. theaters. The situation was a lot better on a worldwide scale as the superhero film pulled in $751 million.
