Venom co-writer Kelly Marcel has reportedly been tapped to write (and executive produce) the sequel - for what is described as a "significant" price.

Sony Pictures has formally begun development on a sequel to 2018's Venom, according to Variety.

The new venom will have numerous same people behind it. Tom Hardy will return as Venom/Eddie Brock and Michelle Williams will reprise her role as his love interest Anne Weying.

Venom is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and features a cast that includes Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson, Jenny Slate, Reid Scott, Scott Haze, Sope Aluko and Ron Cephas Jones. Hell, you could even say that Sony's standalone superhero romp was a bit of a chaotic mess, but one thing's for sure: Tom Hardy brought his A game and offered up one helluva performance. He is in the pre-production stages of Jekyll, set to feature Captain America's Chris Evans, too, and is attached to make comedy The Regional Office Is Under Attack.

Say what you like about Venom - and the internet at large has, both for and against - but the Tom Hardy-starring comic book anti-hero movie made almost $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The news comes after the studio recently dated an untitled Marvel sequel for October 2020. In the comics, Kasady bonds with a symbiote of his own and takes on the very apt name Carnage, becoming one of Venom's most bloodthirsty foes.
