Back in February there was talk of Sony looking at writers for a possible Venom movie, and now we have news that a draft script has been written by Jacob Estes. However, the studio is considering going in a different direction from Estes’ script and is seeking writers for a new draft.
Venom was played by Topher Grace in Spider-Man 3, however apparently he may be replaced, which would be easy considering Venom is a substance rather than a character.
Sony is still hoping to release Spider-Man 4 in 2011, and Sam Raimi confirmed at Comic Con that he is still waiting to read the script. If we get the fourth Spider-Man movie in 2011 that would be 9 years after we got the first Spider-Man movie back in 2002.
