Sony planning R-rated Venom movie

March 28th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Sony’s plans to make a standalone Venom movie has taken an interesting turn with the news that the potential film will be R-rated.

Following in the footsteps of Deapool and Logan, it seems that the studio are hoping to build on the success of the aforementioned films.

Not much else is know about Sony’s plans except that shooting begins later this year and that the character will not be part of Marvel’s cinematic universe whereas the two studios have an agreement in place for Spider-Man, hence the release of Homecoming this summer.

Venom is being written by Dante Harper (Alien: Covenant) and produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach,

More as we get it.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
