With the recent incredible box office success of Spider-Man 3, Sony Pictures has announced that they will do at least three more Spidey movies.
Sony’s chief exec, Michael Lynton stated, “Everybody has every intention of making a fourth, a fifth and a sixth and on and on. (We’ll make) as many as we can make good stories for.”
“I think it had a lot to do with timing,” Lynton reveals about the success of the third installment. “The fact we were the first out in the summer.
“I think it had to do with the fact that the movie had a universal appeal, it had a broader appeal than the second movie, it attracted a family audience and brought the family audience back.
“There were many factors that contributed to it, and there’s a part that you just put down to ‘I don’t know.'”
The Sony exec did not reveal whether director Sam Raimi or Spider-Man himself, Tobey Maguire, share in his enthusiasm for doing more Spidey movies.
Looks like Sony liked the scent of the box office cash this weekend, doesn’t it?
