Sony is developing a franchise based on Spider-Man villain Venom

Sony is developing a standalone film based on the Spider-Man villain Venom.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dante Harper (Edge of Tomorrow, World War Z) has been charged with writing the script. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, who were involved in the two previous Spider-Man film franchises, are producing and overseeing the new project.

Sony reportedly envisions Venom as unrelated to the upcoming Spider-Man reboot starring Tom Holland. If all goes as planned, Venom could evolve into its own franchise.

The character of Venom was previously portrayed by Topher Grace in 2007’s Spider-Man 3.
