According to all reports, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon has taken on the job of scripting the second Spidey script (earning several reputed million in the process). And who said literature doesn't pay?
The consenus seems to be that he's up to the task - the only real concern is whether he has enough time to produce a polished enough sequel to live up to the standard set by the original. Shooting is supposed to start in three months or so - which makes it a rather brave move to bin the existing screenplays and start from scratch!
