'Spider-Man 4' to Hook on Pulitzer Prize-Winner David Lindsay-Abaire


David Lindsay-Abaire, award-winning playwright, has been involved in final talks to pen the fourth 'Spider-Man' movie.

Columbia Pictures are one step closer to secure a screenwriter for "Spider-Man 4" script. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is in final negotiations with David Lindsay-Abaire to have the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright for 2006's Broadway stage production "Rabbit Hole", penning the fourth superhero movie.

Lindsay-Abaire will not be the first "Spider-Man" scribe winning the Pulitzer, "Spider-Man 2" screenwriter, Michael Chabon, is also a winner of the prestigious award. While nothing is set in stone yet, there are no explanation on whether the "Inkheart" screenwriter will rewrite the draft written by James Vanderbilt or he will take on a different route and bring in new material.

This fourth movie in the "Spider-Man" franchise has had director Sam Raimi and lead actor Tobey Maguire back to reprise their roles. They will join producers Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad. In the meantime, leading lady Kirsten Dunst is expected to return. Up to date, details on the storyline have been tightly sealed.

    this movie has to great. The problem is the climax of the spiderman story line was already brutilized in part 3. When spidey puts on that black suit, it should have stayed on till the end, then you could have had venom and only venom in 4. He could have made spiderman life a living hell all movie
