Spider-Man arch enemy VENOM to get his own film

We usually don’t cover comic book related movie news but when this came across our desk we had to let you fiends know about it. Read on for all the details.

Josh Trank(Chronicle) is in talks to direct the Spidey spin off and honestly, we couldn’t be happier!

According to the L.A. Times, Sony is negotiating with Trank to take the reins of the Spidey spin-off, said a person familiar with the project who was not authorized to talk about it publicly. Sony was not immediately available for comment.

The film would center on the gooey villain who was a mainstay of the Marvel comics and was a nemesis, incarnated by Topher Grace, in the third Spider-Man picture in 2007. (The character attaches himself to a human host and becomes as powerful as the web-slinging superhero.) Grace is not expected to reprise the role.

A Venom film has been gestating at the studio for quite some time, dating back at least to 2008 and preceding plans for this summer’s Marc Webb-Andrew Garfield take on the character. Gary Ross negotiated to direct a Venom film back in 2009 but moved on to other projects, including the upcoming The Hunger Games.

More as it comes.
