James Vanderbilt, who co-wrote The Amazing Spider-Man, had penned a draft of the sequel.
However, he has since moved on to concentrate on White House Down, leaving Kurtzman and Orci with the screenplay.
"Alex and Bob have a unique ability to write great character and spectacular action that makes them pitch perfect for Spider-Man," said Matt Tolmach, who will act as co-producer on the sequel alongside Avi Arad.
Arad added: "They have an innate understanding of what makes Peter Parker not just a superhero, but a hero for all of us."
The Amazing Spider-Man will open July 3 in the US and July 4 in the UK, while the follow-up is expected to debut on May 2, 2014.
