Writers Hired For Sony’s Venom Movie
We reported yesterday that Sony is moving forward with their Venom movie, based on the anti-hero and villain from the world of Spider-Man. It will be released on on October 5th, 2018.
Superhero Hype has another detail on the film, in that screenwriters have already been hired. Scott Rosenberg (Pain & Gain, Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) will write the script, after a previous draft had been written by Dante Harper.
It’s still unknown if this film will tie-in to Sony’s new Spider-Man films that have the webslinger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starting with Spider-Man: Homecoming (released on July 7). When the film was originally planned in 2013 (with Alex Kurtzman directing), it was planned to be separate from Spidey’s adventures, but those plans could have changed. Kurtzman is no longer attached to the project.
