VENOM Movie Developped by Sony?
According to Empire, Sony is developing a spin-off for Venom.
Jacob Estes (Mean Creek) has already been commissioned to write a script, although The Hollywood Reporter says that Sony may decide to pass on that script and is looking at new writers. With no script in place, there’s no news on which version of Venom the movie would follow. It could be Eddie Brock (played by Topher Grace in Spider-Man 3, though Grace has not been approached to reprise his role), which would require some back-pedalling given the end of of Spidey 3, or it could be one of the later characters who are overtaken by the alien symbiote. If Sony was feeling particularly daring, it could even be a woman, based on the comic book lore.
One thing is for sure, Venom is Spider Man 3 was a joke. I didn’t know much about the character, but I was not impressed. So all I have to say is that if Sony really goes through with the spin-off, they better make him hard core, the way it was meant to be. I mean, come on this is supposed to be Spider Man’s nemesis, he should be a bad-ass, right?
What do you think of a Venom movie? Should they even be making one?
