Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to Pen The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel
"The Amazing Spider-Man" has found writers. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, both "Star Trek" scribes, have been chosen to write the script for the upcoming sequel to "The Amazing Spider-Man".  Both have also worked on two "Transformers" films as well as Mission: Impossible III.

"We grew up as huge Spider-Man fans so, to us, the opportunity to work on this film is akin to being handed the Holy Grail. We love the direction Sony and the filmmakers are taking the Peter Parker/Spider-Man mythology and we couldn't be more excited to be a part of this legendary franchise", said Kurtzman and Orci.

Matt Tomlach, producer of the film, said, "Alex and Bob have a unique ability to write great character and spectacular action that makes them pitch perfect for Spider-Man. They've been friends of ours for a long time and they have an exciting take on the franchise - we're thrilled to have them join the Spider-Man family."

Countdown to the release of The Amazing Spider-man, with the iPhone Movie Clock App.
