‘Venom’ gets a sequel, Tom Hardy to return

A Venom sequel is officially in the works

But the box office sales tell another tale as Venom has managed to gross over $850 million (£667 million) following its release in October, which was more than Deadpool 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy thanks to a huge opening in China.

Sony is moving forward with a sequel to its hit film Venom, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It's set to be written by Kelly Marcel, who has previously written Saving Mr Banks and Fifty Shades Of Grey and was brought in for rewrites on the first Venom. The outlet's informants also indicated that the terms of Marcel's agreement with Sony will see her serve as an executive producer in addition to the lead screenwriter. Pre-production is still in the larval stage, but Michelle Williams is expected to return, and Woody Harrelson has been courted to play Carnage, the villain who will fight the film's own villain-ish anti-hero. A director has not been set yet, though sources say the studio might look for a new filmmaker as "Venom" helmer Reuben Fleischer will be busy shooting the sequel to Sony's "Zombieland".

Managing pay freezes and pay increases may be hard , anyway, because so many are not working, federal personnel executives said. Republicans offered to scrap the executive pay raise in return for agreeing to a 1.9 percent raise for civil servants.

A sequel to 2018's Venom has been in the gestation stage since the comic book spin-off became a semi-surprise smash, defying expectations that it was too weird (or simply not good) to make Aquaman money. The obvious implication is another symbiote vs. symbiote showdown as we got in the first film-except this one is Carnage, so obviously it will all be much more compelling, right?

Sounds like there's more juice left in Venom yet.
