Sam Raimi on Chance to Return for 'Spider-Man 5' and '6'

As Sony Pictures Entertainment moves on with 'Spider-Man 5' and 'Spider-Man 6', question on whether or not the original director of the 'Spider-Man' series will be involved is addressed.

"Spider-Man 5" and "Spider-Man 6" are planned to be developed, and Sam Raimi has shared his thoughts on whether or not he will make a return to the directing seat. During a recent interview with MTV, the helmer of the "Spider-Man" series revealed that he himself is still unsure of his involvement in future movies.

"Every time I make one of the 'Spider-Man' movies, I have to ask myself, 'Is the character still intriguing to me? Do I love the character? Am I dying to tell the next story of Peter Parker and Spider-Man?' " the 49-year-old filmmaker explained what it took to make him do the previous films and the current one. "And so far the answer has been yes."

Raimi continued on by saying, "If ever I feel sated, like I've got no more to say or I'm not really super-excited about it, because I know I'll also love it, but I've got to be super-excited about it. If I can't reach that level of commitment and excitement, I think then there'd be somebody else better to do justice to the story." He then ended his comment, "You have to ask me in two-and-half years."

Back in August, it was reported that Sony Pictures Entertainment has hired screenwriter James Vanderbilt to work on the scripts to "Spider-Man 5" and "Spider-Man 6". The studio "has quietly engaged" the writer for the original "Spider-Man 4" screenplay because the executives at Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios like his ideas.

It is still unclear whether lead actor Tobey Maguire will be involved in the fifth and sixth films once again. There is speculation that if the key people of the "Spider-Man" franchise do not return, Vanderbilt's script would be the blueprint for a franchise reboot. In the meantime, director Sam Raimi is attached to direct "Spider-Man 4" which is expected to open wide in the U.S. on May 6, 2011.
