Gary Ross, who worked on a range of films from biopic "Seabiscuit" to animated kids' feature "The Tale of Despereaux," will work on rewriting the superhero movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

We don't know exactly what the plot of the fourth movie was (or, for that matter, why it needs a rewrite) outside some vague hints dropped in June by Sony producer Todd Black: A wedding between Peter Parker and Mary-Jane Watson isn't in the works, and the villain will be a big part of New York."
Stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst and director Sam Raimi have all signed on for "Spider-Man 4" for a scheduled release date of May 6, 2011.
