Sony Pictures Entertainment bosses booked James Vanderbilt to pen the screenplay for the fourth Spider-Man movie but Raimi brought in playwright David Lindsay-Abaire to rewrite his effort. Gary Ross is now rewriting that script.
But, although the director didn't embrace Vanderbilt's work, studio bosses did - and they've called him back.
Vanderbilt won acclaim for his work on David Fincher's Zodiac in 2007.
Disgraced supermodel Kate Moss has slammed new newspaper reports she
is using crack cocaine, as more fashion houses consider dropping the troubled
beauty from their advertising campaigns.
The English model is furious at British tabloid The Sun's allegations today,
that she smokes rocks of crack twice a week, as well as snorting
cocaine and taking ecstasy tablets.
Moss' contracts with H&M, Burberry and Chanel have been cancelled after
photographs of Moss allegedly snorting cocaine was published in last week's
Daily Mirror newspaper.
The supermodel's lawyer Gerrard Tyrell says his client "specifically denied"
the crack allegations.
After Chanel and Burberry announced yesterday they would no longer
use Moss in their ads, her own contracts with Gloria Vanderbilt and Christian
Dior appear to be under threat.
Jack Gross, chief executive of Vanderbilt, says, "We would have second
thoughts about using Kate Moss again. We weren't aware of any issues with Kate
prior to this campaign."
A spokesperson for Christian Dior admitted they were unsure of Moss' future
with the French designer, explaining, "Is she still representing the brand?
Good question, I can't answer that."
Meanwhile, jewelry firm H. Stern is standing by the troubled model,
releasing a statement saying, "We chose Kate because she is a style icon and
everything beyond that is her personal and private life."
