Scott Rosenberg (“Pain & Gain”) & Jeff Pinkner (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) have reportedly come onboard to pen the script for the “Venom” film which was announced yesterday.
Dante Harper wrote a previous draft of the script which puts the focus on the character from the Marvel comics, an alien costume worn by Spider-Man and later merging with photographer Eddie Brock to form the anti-hero Venom.
At last report there’s no plans to tie this film to the Tom Holland-led “Spider-Man: Homecoming” or any other projects in the works that involve the MCU. “Venom” will open on October 5th next year.
Venom was previously played on screen by Topher Grace in 2007’s “Spider-Man 3”.
