VENOM MOVIE MOVING FORWARD The Spider-Man franchise seemed to come off the rails creatively with the disappointing third chapter in 2007. No, it wasn’t Batman and Robin, but suffice it to say fans weren’t particularly happy, especially with the treatment of fan fave and longtime Spidey arch-nemesis Venom.

Now Sony is going forward with a Venom spinoff movie, which pretty much has fans split down the middle. Will it finally do the fanged black-ooze baddie justice, or will it be more of the same? The good news is that Zombieland co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have been tasked with penning the project (Zombieland is awesome, so fingers crossed).

Today Wernick confirmed to us that the project is still moving forward and the writing team has turned the script in to the suits at Sony. “We’ve written two drafts of Venom, and the studio has it, and they’re pushing forward in whatever ways they push forward,” Wernick told SCI FI Wire in an exclusive interview.

Are you excited to see Venom on the big screen?
