Update: The project will be directed by Ruben Fleischer based on a script by Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner, and Kelly Marcel.
A Venom movie was announced a few years ago, unfortunately the project fell in development limbo along the way. But the project is now back on the front burner: Sony Pictures announced indeed that they’re going to expand the world of the new Spider-Man franchise and that a Venom movie is being planned.
Scriptwriter Alex Kurtzman (Transformers, Mission Impossible 3, Star Trek) will direct the film based on a script he should (re-?)write with Roberto Orci and Ed Solomon. The plot hasn’t been announced yet.
A reference to Venom was actually spotted in the last trailer of The Amazing Spider-Man 2:
The picture is from a scene with Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) and Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) using a high-tech computer at Oscorp.
Anyway stay tuned with us for more details about the live-action venom movie!
