Director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield are suiting back up for another chapter in "The Amazing Spider-Man," which grossed $261 million domestically this summer.
The duo responsible for rebooting the successful franchise just five years after the Sam Raimi-directed trilogy closed up shop in 2007 will resume production in early 2013. They will be working off a screenplay from Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt.
Sony Pictures announced the film's 3-D release date of May 2, 2014, back in April, months before it had locked in its director and star.
While Garfield was expected to revisit his role as Peter Parker, there had been concern that Webb wouldn't be able to return to the Spider-Man fold as director due to an obligation he had with Fox Searchlight, the studio that produced Webb's first feature, "(500) Days of Summer."
