Venom’s ‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff Is Officially Happening
The Movie God   |  @   |  


Cinematical is reporting that the rumored Spider-Man spinoff of the Venom character (Read: Sony Doing A ‘Spider-Man’ Venom Spinoff?) is now officially being developed by Sony Pictures.

Above and beyond the announcement that Sony is now officially developing the movie — the studio has also hired screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to put a script together. Reese did some work on Monsters Inc. and both Reese and Wenick recently wrote the script for Zombieland.

Cinematical’s Scott Weinberg spoke to the writing duo and had this to say about their being hired:

Based only on the half-hour I spent talking movies with the screenwriters, I can say that IF there has to be a Venom movie, then these are the guys who can pull it off. They seem to understand the practical (studio) side of the project, the professional (screenwriter) perspective, and (best of all) the enthusiasm needed to make the movie cooool. They couldn’t divulge ANY tidbits at all, sorry! But at this early point, I’m feeling a bit more optimistic about Venom.

Most who love Venom were incredibly upset by the way the character was brought to life in the not-so-popular Spider-Man 3, so this is something fans have wanted to happen to make up for that.

No word yet as to what the storyline will be, but if one had to assume (and hope, as most fans will be), it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to think it may involve Carnage. That would be pretty fantastic.

  3. Yeah, I’m done with that franchise. Spider-Man 2 was perfect, and perfectly set up 3, which just needs a complete do over. I hate it when money makes writers stupid.
