IESB reports that Marvel Studios is gearing up for a film spin-off featuring "Spider-Man" villain Venom, and has already met with "several A-list writers" about the project.

The studio signed an interim agreement with the WGA the other week allowing them to continue developing scripts for projects, and retains the rights to the character despite his appearance in Sony's highly profitable but critically mixed "Spider-Man 3".

No word if actor Topher Grace will reprise his role of if Sam Raimi will be involved though both are unlikely.

Sony Pictures is moving forward with "Venom," a potential "Spider-Man" spinoff based on the bad guy seen in "Spider-Man 3" says The Hollywood Reporter.

Jacob Estes ("Mean Creek") was attached to pen a script draft several years ago, but the studio is now considering going in a different direction and is seeking writers for a new draft.

It's also unlikely that Topher Grace will return to play the creature. As the beastie comes from a parasite, it's likely the substance will attach itself to a different character in the film.

Sony is still developing a fourth "Spider-Man" film for release in 2011.

Sony moving forward with its "Spider-Man" spinoff movie focusing on Venom says Sci-Fi Wire.

"Zombieland" scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are already at work on the script but are sworn to secrecy on the details - "We're under strict orders on Venom. We can't talk about it. It's just super secret" said the pair during a press interview.

The pair claim they "certainly know the mythology of Venom, but went back and learned more when it became clear that we could actually get this job."

"Zombieland" co-writer Paul Wernick tells Sci-Fi Wire that the "Spider-Man" spin-off feature based on the Venom character is still stuck in the early stages.

"We've written two drafts of Venom, and the studio has it, and they're pushing forward in whatever ways they push forward" says Wernick who co-wrote the script with Rhett Reese.

Asked about a link between the upcoming "Spider-Man 4" and the "Venom" project, he responded "We can't really talk about that, unfortunately. Basically, the studio and Marvel and the Arads are taking our drafts and going beyond and figuring out what's the next step."

Gary Ross ("Seabiscuit," "Pleasantville") will pen the next draft of the script and potentially direct the "Spider-Man" spin-off feature "Venom" for Sony Pictures says Heat Vision Blog.

Venom is a gooey alien parasite that bonds with Peter Parker and later his newsroom rival and becomes a monstrous beast.

Topher Grace portrayed the character in 2007's "Spider-Man 3", no word if Grace will return or even if the story will be a continuation of that or a reboot with no link to the "Spider-Man" universe.

Ross, who is also polishing the "Spider-Man 4" script, takes over from previous "Venom" drafts by the likes of "Mean Creek" writer Jacob Estes and "Zombieland" scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

The LA Times is reporting that Chronicle director Josh Trank is in talks to direct Venom, a feature film based on the "Spider-Man" character.

First appearing in the comic book series as an alien costume worn by Spider-Man in "The Amazing Spider-Man" #252 in 1984, it was several years before the creature left Peter Parker and merged with photographer Eddie Brock, forming the antihero known as Venom. Since then, the character has appeared in a variety of different forms and bonded with several different hosts. In the "Ultimate" Marvel Universe, the suit has a more terrestrial origin, created by Parker and Brock's scientist parents in an attempt to cure cancer.

Venom has appeared on the big screen before in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, played by Topher Grace. It is unlikely that the proposed film will bear any connection to that take on the character, though it remains to be seen if the project will connect in any form to July 3rd's The Amazing Spider-Man.

VENOM: Working their way from Iron Man to The Avengers, Marvel Studios have brought the comic book-style crossover story to the big screen, with scoops full of style and no small amount of financial success. Now, as we’ve learned this week, Warner Bros. are looking to repeat the same trick.

But it doesn’t end there. Sony have similar plans for their Marvel-licensed movies.

The Amazing Spider-Man‘s producers, Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad, have been out at the film’s US junket and speaking about their upcoming Venom picture. Hollywood were (was?) listening.

Tolmach suggested the crossover potential:

What I’m trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday… look for the worlds to make sense with one another.

And Arad stayed more focused on Venom in its own right:

It’s an Eddie Brock story… We want to be as close to the comics as possible. Especially in Eddie Brock’s story. But again, pseudo-sceince is becoming science. All these tidbits about webs, artificial webs, is a huge industry now. Spiderwebs have unique qualities that will be huge for communications, fibers, and so forth. So we have taken the approach that we want to make the huge amazing movie about Eddie.

Sounds To Me Like Carnage Will Be The Villain Of The Venom Movie!

Asked if Carnage was likely to rock up in Alex Kurtzman’s Venom movie, Arad and Tolmach pretty much confirmed that this was the plan. Arad said:

What a great idea.

While Tolmach offered:

Exactly. The idea of Venom and Carnage… taking it into consideration. Watch out for this Venom movie. We are crazy excited.

Alex Kurtzman has pretty much confirmed his old partner's comments from earlier this week that Sony remains undecided about the future of the Spider-Man franchise, namely its spin-offs, at the moment with everything still uncertain:

"Everybody is still figuring it out. It’s all up for grabs, right now. We’re just trying to figure it out. Everything is still on the table, right now. Because it’s a universe outside of the Spider-Man universe, even though it’s connected to it, those movies have to stand on their own. So, we’ll see. We’ll see how it goes."

Ann Weying, a key character from Marvel’s “Spider-Man” comics, is reportedly set to appear in the upcoming “Venom” movie at Sony Pictures according to That Hashtag Show.

In the comics, Weying is a successful lawyer and the ex-wife of Eddie Brock – the man who becomes Venom. In the comics she also became She-Venom and temporary symbiote before ultimately committing suicide due to the trauma of the experience.

Tom Hardy is set to play Venom in the film which boasts a new script by Jeff Pinker and Scott Rosenberg. Producers are reportedly looking to cast a woman in the age range of 25-32-years old for the role of Ann.

The new film, which boasts Carnage as the villain, is NOT a part of the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and is rumored to have an R-rating. It is currently expected to be released October 5th 2018.
