One of our favourite movies of the last few months was director Josh Trank’s ‘Chronicle’. A unique twist on the superhero movie, it had style, flourish and a respect for the genre that is so often lost. Then, afterwards rumours abound that Trank was attached to the Fantastic Four reboot – a perfect fit in our opinion – but then the man himself shot that one down.
Well, as well we know, the rumour mill never sleeps and now his name is attached to a new (?) Venom movie project. Yes, the same Venom played by Topher Grace in the disasterous Spider-man 3.
Apparently Sony Pictures are developing the concept based on a script by Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick.
With Spider-man getting a fresh bite of the cherry this summer, it’s not impossibel we suppose… but this feels, well, wrong. If we hear more, you know we’ll be telling you all.
