We had heard that Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Dark Tower) were writing Venom, but Variety reporter Justin Kroll has added a new name to that list.
According to Kroll, Fifty Shades of Grey writer Kelly Marcel is taking a crack at the latest version of the Venom script. With production expected to begin later this fall, there’s not much time for any more changes.
