Venom Movie Takes Shape But Still A Bit Formless


From beneath the muck of Hollywood the Venom movie arises. But the comic-book villain hasn’t broken the surface quite yet. Film School Rejects learned that Coming Soon probed writers Rhett Reese’s and Paul Wernick’s brains on the set of their upcoming horror-comedy Zombieland, starring Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin. They’re pumped to be writing the screenplay and have submitted a draft to Sony and Marvel. The two companies are approaching the Venom story seriously imposing what Wernick dubs the “47 rules.”

For fans, that could be a good thing or a bad thing. We’ll have to hunker down and wait to find out. A spin-off of Spiderman 3, the film joins X-Men Origins: Wolverine as a title based on a huge franchise that has recently been starving for exciting plotlines. I hope the Venom character gets a more fitting introduction than he received in Spiderman 3. So I ask you, dear readers, what “rules” do you have for the Venom script?
