Justin K. Thompson & Kemp Powers Join Joaquim Dos Santos To Helm Sony Pictures ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ Sequel

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 - Joaquim Dos Santos

Today, Variety announced that Oscar-nominated director Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson have joined Joaquim Dos Santos to helm Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2. The trio of directors takes over from the original film directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman. Phil Lord and Chris Miller return to pen the script alongside David Callaham.

“We are so lucky to have Joaquim, Justin and Kemp on the ‘Spider-Verse’ team. We are huge fans of Joaquim’s work — he makes his characters so heartfelt and unique, and he can tell an emotional story with an action sequence the way a musical does through a song. Justin is a maverick filmmaker who relentlessly pursues visual innovation and surprise but always in support of the emotional storytelling. Kemp’s work is incisive and ambitious and funny — with a writer’s wisdom and a director’s heart — he just knows what matters in every scene. All three of them elevate every project they take on, and they are certainly raising our game. We honestly just like them and want to be their friends and we’re hoping working on this movie together for the next few years will totally make that happen.” – Lord and Miller

Amy Pascal, Avi Arad, and Christina Steinberg will return to produce the sequel.
