In a move that nearly makes me wish Amazing Spider-Man fails horribly, Sony has hired the writers for the seemingly inevitable sequel.
The two writers may ring a bell, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. They are the writing duo behind Star Trek (the Abrams reboot), Transformers, and even helped on Fringe. It's not the greatest writers of all time but they seemingly know how to cultivate a big budget movie script. Link.
I don't like the idea of a studio just assuming their work is going to make billions but Alex and Roberto are currently working on Star Trek 2 so maybe this is just hiring them before someone else does. Does this make you feel better about the future of Spider-Man?
