Alvin Sargent Comes to Spidey’s Emotional Rescue

USA Today has up a new article talking about Spider-Man 2 writer Alvin Sargent. It mentions he’ll be helping with the script for Spider-Man 3. Director Sam Raimi and his brother Ivan are currently sketching an outline for the third film.

Instead, it’s the man who put those refreshingly candid words in his mouth.

Thanks to Alvin Sargent, 77, a publicity-shy screenwriter who won Oscars for 1977’s Julia and 1980’s Ordinary People, the sequel to 2002’s comic-book triumph is a popcorn rarity, earning raves for its emotional resonance as well as its special effects.
