Sam Raimi Busy Writing Spider-Man 3

The Irish Examiner reports that director Sam Raimi has already turned his thoughts to Spider-Man 3

The director of summer blockbuster Spider-Man 2 is “flabbergasted” by the film’s record-breaking success at the box office, but Sam Raimi said today that he is too busy writing Part Three to relax and enjoy the victory.

The film has already outdone the original Spider Man, pulling in a record €150m in its first six days in North American theatres.

“The box office is just a surprise,” Raimi said in Tokyo, ahead of the film’s opening there on Saturday. “I’m flabbergasted.”

Raimi said he and his brother were currently working on the story for Spider-Man 3.

“We were working on it at the hotel last night and this morning,” he said. “But I don’t know what is going to happen yet.”

Sam and his brother are of course working on the story, the actual screenplay will be written by someone else.
