The movie blogosphere is all a-jizz today over the news that Sony has hired David Lindsay-Abaire to write the script for Spider-Man 4 (Zodiac writer James Vanderbilt had previously written a draft). Besides having a stupid hyphenated name, Lindsay-Abaire won a Pulitzer Prize in 2007 for his play Rabbitt Hole.
“Ooh, look at me, I have a Pulitzer Prize.” Whatever. I didn’t even know they had those in theater. Who even watches plays anymore? Plays are like movies without explosions or bare tits. They might as well award a Pulitzer Prize in Alchemy, or riding horses.
Oh hey, and you know what else this guy wrote? Inkheart. With Brendan Fraser. Case closed. Advantage: me. Mixed metaphors? Touchdown.
