The Spider-Man reboot finally has screenwriters, and they’re a formidable duo. Following the announcement of Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Jon Watts as the director comes news that the writing duo of John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein will be handling script duties. The two have written Horrible Bosses, Horrible Bosses 2, and are making their directorial debut with this summer’s Vacation.
Back when the purported shortlist of directors for Spider-Man was released, Daley and Goldstein were present. In fact, the duo was my personal favorite to direct the film. To have them involved in the project is a great sign for the film. As anyone who has seen Horrible Bosses and/or Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 can attest, Daley and Goldstein have a great handle on modern comedy and pop culture.
With everybody in place, we can expect to hear a plethora of rumors pertaining to the plot in the months to come. And you know what? I can’t wait.
