Gary Ross is already rewriting Spider-Man 4, and now he’s got a deal in the works to rewrite to direct Venom. It’s unlikely that Topher Grace will star in the movie as he’s a tad busy with the rebooted Predators movie.

Even though Marvel Entertainment was just acquired by Disney in a $4 billion deal, Columbia Pictures is able to turn Venom loose in a film because the studio holds rights in perpetuity not only to Spider-Man but to the villains in his universe.

Avi Arad and Ross will produce the spider-man spin-off.

    I wonder if this is where we see Carnage. Still, how so you have a movie with no hero?
