"Spider-Man" trilogy helmer Sam Raimi told Empire magazine that a writer for "Spider-Man 4" is still being searched.
Seems hopes are pretty low to see David Koepp return to the web-slinging superhero franchise after his remarkable writing job in "Spider-Man."
Contrary to the report surfacing January this year that claimed the scribe was in talks to pen "Spider-Man 4", Sam Raimi has indicated to Empire no name has been tapped yet to write the project's script.
"We've had our first meeting on Spider-Man 4 and we're looking for the writer," so he told the magazine.
As he said so, Raimi also expressed his eagerness to continue be involved in developing this next chapter of the wall crawler though the man is still not sure yet whether he really will take the director's chair once again in the series.
"I want to help contribute to the production," so he said. "I don't know if I'll just be a producer on it but if I can work with the writer in such a way so that directing would be right for me, I don't know."
