'Star Trek' writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are creating a sequel to 'The Amazing Spider-Man'.
Despite the film - starring British actor Andrew Garfield as the web-slinging hero and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy - not being released until July 3, studio Sony are keen to create a follow-up, which is planned to hit cinemas on May 2, 2014.
Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad, who are producing the project, said in a statement: ''Alex and Bob have a unique ability to write a great character and spectacular action that makes them pitch perfect for Spider-Man.
''They have an innate understanding of what makes Peter Parker not just a superhero but a hero for us all.''
The sequel is expected to go into production in the first quarter of 2013.
