Watts closed out 2021 on a triumphant note with “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” his third effort in the Tom Holland-toplined iteration of the web-slinging franchise. The film took in $1.9 billion worldwide, topping all previous Spider-Man films and unseating “Avatar” as the third-highest-grossing film of all time domestically. He directed and exec produced the FX drama series “The Old Man,” starring Jeff Bridges, which was renewed for a second season shortly after its premiere. In May, it was announced that Watts would join the “Star Wars” universe as director and executive producer of the Disney+ series “Skeleton Crew,” set to premiere in 2023. Scripted by Christopher Ford (co-writer of “Spider-Man: Homecoming”) and starring Jude Law, it is reportedly a coming-of-age adventure in the spirit of movies produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment in the 1980s.
