THE STUDIOS ARE KEEN TO HAVE THE CREATIVE TEAM BACK FOR A SECOND ONE.
Spider-Man: Homecoming writers, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, are set to return to write the Spider-Man sequel. Jon Watts is also in talks to return as director. Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios reportedly want to keep many of the creative elements for the sequel.
The summer movie hit starring Tom Holland as the title role. The movie was a hit among fans and critics alike as the story portrays High School student Peter Parker butting heads with his mentor Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), wanting to fight much bigger evil doers and still have to deal with school problems.
The movie earned more than $319 Million domestically and $737 million worldwide, which beat its predecessor, 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man (grossed $202 million domestically and $708 million worldwide.)
The sequel already has a release date of July 5, 2019.
The writers, McKenna and Sommers, hail from the comedy and animation world. McKenna worked in the Mindy Project while Sommers in Happy Endings and Marry Me. The duo also worked together in The Lego Batman Movie, Sony and Marvel’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Before the action-comedy ‘Homecoming’, Jon Watts directed thriller such as Cop Car (2015) and Clown (2014).
