Iâ€™m not convinced a â€œVenomâ€ movie needs to be (least interesting and ill-fitting character of the â€œSpider-Manâ€ universe if you ask me; I mean, we all saw â€œSpider-Man 3â€ right!?) but if it has to be, let someone like Gary Ross be writing and directing it! At least it has half of chance of being tolerable nowâ€¦. Right?
Ross just did a rewrite on â€œSpider-Man 4â€ and also penned/helmed â€œSeabiscuitâ€ â€“ both starring Tobey Maguire.
Venom, an arch enemy of the web-slinger in the Marvel Comics series, will be transformed into an anti-hero who becomes a defender of the innocent in the new pic. Though Topher Grace played the evil parasite in the dreaded â€œSpider-Man 3â€, heâ€™s not likely to be reprising his role as Sony wants to start from scratch.
Columbia, who owns the film rights to â€œSpider-Manâ€ and itâ€™s huge array of villains and supporting characters (despite the fact Disney now owns pretty much every other character), has been developing â€œVenomâ€ picture for some time, most recently getting a draft from â€œZombielandâ€ scribe Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
According to Variety, Ross is also working with Columbia on rewriting to direct the film about cyclist Lance Armstrongâ€™s recovery from life-threatening testicular cancer to win a record-breaking seven Tour de France titles. “Venom” steps in front of that project.
