"Sony's 'Venom' Taps Writer for New Film, Potential Franchise"

Eric Foreman, AKA Venom

Via CBR:

“Venom” is swinging back to Sony. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has hired Dante Harper to write the script for the “Spider-Man” spinoff, which is intended to develop into its own franchise.

I’m sometimes not usually one to hold a grudge but given the disastrous failure of not only Spider-Man 3, in which Venom made his first movie appearance, but also the complete misstep by Sony that was Amazing Spider-Man 2, I’m certainly not holding my breath for this one.
