Paul Feig Contributed to The Amazing Spider-Man’s Screenplay

Though he’s now best known for helming the hit comedy Bridesmaids, Paul Feig is no stranger to creative cameos, oftentimes appearing as an actor for small-scale roles (as was the case with last year’s Bad Teacher). Today, Feig revealed to Vulture that he’s got a new surprise appearance coming up, this time as a writer for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man.

“He’s a great guy,” Feig told the outlet of Webb. “He invited me on set and I did a little bit of writing for that movie for one of the high school scenes.”

Getting Feig back to high school should delight fans of his much-lauded series “Freaks and Geeks” (which itself helped launch the career of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man star James Franco).

Swinging into 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on July 3, the action adventure stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen and Sally Field.
