Gary Ross to Write & Direct Venom Spin-Off Film
Gary Ross is writing “Venom,” Columbia’s “Spider-Man” spinoff based on one of the villains from “Spider-Man 3,” as a potential directing vehicle. Ross is already writing “Spider-Man 4.”
In the comics, Venom is a gooey alien parasite that bonds with Peter Parker and later his newsroom rival, becoming one of the more popular villains in "Spider-Man’s" rogue gallery.
Topher Grace portrayed the character in the 2007 movie, which ended with both the human and the alien symbiote apparently destroyed in an explosion.
The studio had no comment on Grace’s involvement nor Ross' writing the project.
Avi Arad and Marvel are producing the movie.
