Los Angeles - A sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man is being written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

Despite the film - starring British actor Andrew Garfield as the web-slinging hero and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy - not being released until July, studio Sony are keen to create a follow-up, which is planned to hit cinemas on 2 May 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."

Roberto and Alex are best known for their work on the reboot of the Star Trek franchise, directed by J.J Abram and starring Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock.

The sequel is expected to go into production in the first quarter of 2013.
