Co-Writers For SPIDER-MAN Reboot Officially On Board

Following reports that they were in early talks, the screenwriters (and co-directors) of the upcoming Vacation reboot sequel have confirmed that they will be scripting the Spider-Man reboot, and they've also discussed why they're perfect for the job. Check it out after the jump!



It was reported just a couple weeks ago that John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein had entered "early talks" to write the screenplay for the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. And while promoting their directorial debut Vacation, which they also co-wrote, the comedy filmmaking duo confirmed they've officially signed on for the 2017 reboot with Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.

"We can finally acknowledge that," said John Francis Daley during a joint NPR interview. "This is the first time that we can say that we are writing it." Jonathan M. Goldstein then chimed in saying, "We've been saying no comment for the last week" and that they are thrilled. "He's a sharp kid and witty and kind of deals with the fact that he's an outcast and a geek through humor," said Daley of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man. "It is sort of the safety net for geeks like us, so I think we can totally relate to where he's coming from. As well as the superpowers, which we also have."

Directed by Jon Watts, Marvel and Sony's untitled Spider-Man reboot so far stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and is scheduled to open in theaters on July 28, 2017. However, the friendly neighborhood web-slinger will first make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut alongside the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016. What do you think?
