Columbia Pictures is currently in talks with Gary Ross (Pleasantville) to direct the upcoming Spider-Man spin-off feature Venom and rewrite the script.

Ross will reportedly start work on Venom as soon he's done with his rewrite of Spider-Man 4. Since the last we heard about the Venom script was that Zombieland's screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had submitted a draft to Marvel and Sony, it's safe to assume that Ross will be rewriting their work. Though after enjoying the insanity that was Zombieland, I can't imagine that Reese and Wernick's script would require a rewrite of any sort.

Venom should hit theaters in 2011, but it seems unlikely that Topher Grace, who brought the role to life in Spider-Man 3, will pick up the mask again.

    Venom Will Be Set in the Same World as The Amazing Spider-Man

    The Amazing Spider-Man is just around the corner, hitting theaters July 3, and two of its producers revealed this reboot may lead into the superhero spin-off, Venom. Here's what producer Matthew Tolmach had to say, revealing Sony seems to be planning a universe similar to Marvel's The Avengers.

    "What I'm trying to say to you without giving anything away is hopefully all these worlds will live together in peace someday."

    Producer Avi Arad also revealed that they are trying to stick closer to the comic book origin story of Eddie Brock.

    "It's an Eddie Brock story. We want to be as close to the comics as possible. Especially in Eddie Brock's story. But again, pseudo-sceince is becoming science. All these tidbits about webs, artificial webs, is a huge industry now. Spiderwebs have unique qualities that will be huge for communications, fibers, and so forth. So we have taken the approach that we want to make the huge amazing movie about Eddie."

    Matthew Tolmach also spoke about their approach to this journalist character.

    "He was a journalist. He had the wrong story, he got in trouble for it, he got fired. The whole essence to us for the Marvel characters. Stay close to the bible, stay close to the emotional story, and the rest is fun."

    Chronicle director Josh Trank is in talks to direct this spin-off, but it isn't known if the deal has been finalized or not.

    Alex Kurtzman Directing VENOM Spinoff Movie and Drew Goddard Writing and Possibly Directing THE SINISTER SIX

    Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Ed Solomon are writing the screenplay for a Venom movie, which Kurtzman will direct.

    In a move to forge a new legacy in the story of Peter Parker on screen, Sony Pictures Entertainment, in association with Marvel Entertainment, is developing several new projects in the Spider-Man franchise, with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner, Ed Solomon, and Drew Goddard to collaborate on overseeing the developing story over several films that will be produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, it was announced today by Doug Belgrad,president of Columbia Pictures, and Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio.

    The five writers, along with the two producers and Marc Webb, have formed a franchise brain trust to expand the universe for the brand and to develop a continuous tone and thread throughout the films. Under the deals, the studio announced that Kurtzman & Orci & Pinkner are writing the screenplay for The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which the studio hopes Webb will return to direct; the film will go into production next fall for release on June 10, 2016. In addition, the team will build on the cinematic foundation laid by Webb, Arad, and Tolmach in the first two movies. They will expand the franchise as Kurtzman & Orci & Solomon will write the screenplay for Venom, which Kurtzman will direct; also, Goddard will write, with an eye to direct, The Sinister Six, focusing on the villains in the franchise. Hannah Minghella and Rachel O’Connor will oversee the development and production of these films for the studio.

    In tapping these five writers, the studio and the producers are guiding the future of the franchise with the writer/producers who have each played significant and key roles in developing such highly successful franchises, films, and series as Star Trek, Transformers, “Alias,” “Fringe,” Men in Black, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, World War Z, “Lost,” Cloverfield, The Cabin in the Woods, and Marvel’s upcoming “Daredevil” series.

    Commenting on the announcement, Belgrad said, “The Spider-Man film franchise is one of our studio’s greatest assets. We are thrilled with the creative team we have assembled to delve more deeply into the world that Marc, Avi and Matt have begun to explore in The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We believe that Marc, Alex, and Drew have uniquely exciting visions for how to expand the Spider-Man universe in each of these upcoming films.” Arad and Tolmach added, “This collaboration was born out of the great experience we and Marc had working with Alex, Bob, and Jeff on The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With more than fifty years’ wealth of stories in the comic books to draw upon for inspiration, the Spider-Man universe is truly boundless; in addition, the Spider-Man comics have the greatest rogues gallery of any series, and to have the chance to explore that on film is truly thrilling. Until now, we have approached each film as a separate, self-contained entity, but with this move, we have the opportunity to grow the franchise by looking to the future as we develop a continuous arc for the story. That is what Alex, Bob, Jeff, Ed, and Drew will do in this unprecedented collaboration, and we’re excited about the directions they are taking the character and the world.”
