TRUTH IN JOURNALISM Director Adi Shankar Is Reportedly In Line To Helm The VENOM Movie For Sony Pictures
Yesterday, we reported on a rumor that Sony Pictures was planning to make their Venom movie the first in a series of R-rated projects that would eventually build to form their own shared cinematic universe of Spidey characters. It seems like an absurd idea to most, but the studio is clearly determined to forge ahead, and now we hear that they may already have a filmmaker in mind.
It now seems very clear that Sony Pictures plans to fast-track their Venom movie, and we might just have word on one of the filmmakers the studio has in mind to direct the Spider-Man spinoff...
Splashreport.com has heard that Adi Shankar is one of the directors on Sony's radar to helm the "action / horror / sci-fi" take on one of the Webhead's most popular foes. Shankar, who is known primarily as a producer, brought us the Venom-centric short film Truth In Advertising a few years back, so it's entirely possible his work on that caught the studio's eye.
We'll have to take this as a rumor for now, but it would make a certain amount of sense if Sony were at least considering Shankar for the Venom gig. What do you guys think?
