PAUL FEIG Did Some Writing On ‘AMAZING SPIDER-MAN’, Awkward Hilarity ++

Paul Feig isn’t just the dude who wrote Bridesmaids. Okay! Shit. Everyone fucking forgets. He’s also the mind behind Freaks and Geeks, and at least one scene in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man  will feature his penchant for interpersonal awkwardness.


In a new interview, Feig revealed that he used a bit of that talent on the set of Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man, punching up one of the scenes that takes place in a high school. Read more after the jump.

Feig made the claim in an interview with Vulture.

[Marc Webb’s] a great guy, he invited me on set, and I did a little bit of writing for that movie, for one of the high school scenes, so I’m excited.

We’ll likely have to wait until the release of the film to find out which scene specifically had Feig’s influence but from everything we’ve seen of the movie, the awkward, familiar and realistic chemistry between Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) is some of its strongest material. And it’s very similar to the awkward interactions Sam Weir would have with girls like Cindy Sanders on Freaks and Geeks.
