Venom 2 is officially a go at Sony

January 8th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Look, we know we’re in the minority here, but we liked Venom. We didn’t love it, but we enjoyed it… it was… enjoyable.

So we’re happy to report that the the sequel – which there was no doubt was coming after the movie did really well at the ol’ box office ($855) – is going ahead.

Kelly Marcel, who was one of the screenwriters on the first movie, is set to pen the script for what is believed to be a pretty substantial pay-day (not sure why that’s important, but there you have it).

Tom Hardy will be back as Eddie Brock/Venom as will Michelle Williams and Woddy Harrelson who will have more than just a cameo this time out as Carnage.

However, director Reuben Fleischer is unlucky to come back as he will be filming Zombieland 2: The Doubletap.

Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal will return as producers… but we’ll not let that ruin our happiness.

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….
