After successfully relaunching the Spider-Man franchise with Spider-Man: Homecoming, Sony and Marvel are staying in business with director Jon Watts.

Watts is in talks to return for the sequel to the hit Spidey film, starring Tom Holland. The sequel, currently untitled, is already slated for release on July 5, 2019.

Watts was best known for directing the $5 million indie Cop Car starring Kevin Bacon, but he successfully made the leap to big-budget tenpoles with Homecoming, getting the gig to co-write and direct the project after pitching a coming-of-age teen story focused on the high school life of Peter Parker. The film, which also starred Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr. and Marisa Tomei, was deemed a box office hit after it open to $117 million domestically. It has earned $468.3 million worldwide over two weeks.

Holland will reprise his role as Peter Parker in the sequel. In the first film, Parker was a sophomore in high school who was trying to adjust to regular Brooklyn life after his adventures with the Avengers. The next film's story will pick up after the events of Avengers: Infinity War, which will hit theaters on May 4, 2018, and will also feature Holland as Peter Parker.

Along with Cop Car, Watts had previously helmed horror movie Clown, and episodes of The Onion News Network.
