The duo were previously set to direct the flim, but American film director, producer and screenwriter, Jon Watts was finalized to direct the movie.
In an interview with NPR, Daley and Goldstein confirmed that they’ll be writing the script for the reboot:
Daley: “We can finally acknowledge that. This is the first time that we can say that we are writing it.”
Goldstein: “We’ve been saying no comment for the last week. We’re thrilled.”
Daley goes on to briefly describe Peter Parker in the film: “He’s a sharp kid and witty and kind of deals with the fact that he’s an outcast and a geek through humor.
It is sort of the safety net for geeks like us, so I think we can totally relate to where he’s coming from. As well as the superpowers, which we also have.”
