MARVELous Writers Wanted

From Nikki Finke:

"Marvel Studios has started a writers program. The goal is to put more than half a dozen film writers on staff, give them an office, and "work them like horses!," one of my sources says. I've confirmed this smart move. (Makes you realize how backwardswriter2.jpg Warner Bros is by comparison on their DC Comics film development.) No Marvel comic book writers are allowed to apply for the program."

Further details in the article.

Terms of the deal and so forth are what they are.

H/T to Shawna.

I think the next blockbuster film licensed from Marvel Studios was Spider-Man by Columbia Pictures, directed by Sam Raimi and starring Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man
