A Venom sequel is officially in the works

The trade reports that writer Kelly Marcel, who was among the original film's writers, is now hard at work penning the screenplay.

Sources close to the negotiation tell Variety that, although an exact amount couldn't be unveiled, Marcel's deal was a significant one. The outlet's informants also indicated that the terms of Marcel's agreement with Sony will see her serve as an executive producer in addition to the lead screenwriter. In all, Venom brought in a staggering $855 million, becoming the sixth-highest-grossing film of 2018.

Venom marked the first instalment in a shared cinematic universe dubbed "Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters", and Sony is next moving ahead with a Morbius, the Living Vampire movie starring Jared Leto, which is scheduled for release on July 10th 2020. But while Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson are all expected to return, director Ruben Fleischer apparently won't be back for round two. That's why we're pleased to report today that Hardy will be back for Venom 2, which is now in development.

Top 4 unchanged, rest of AP Top 25 poll a jumble
After two conference victories over Penn State and Indiana, Michigan stayed at No. 2 in the latest Associated Press poll. The Spartans (13-2) took down Northwestern 8-55 on Wednesday and No. 14 Ohio State, in Columbus, 86-77 on Saturday.

Prior to "Venom", Marcel was best known for adapting another box office hit, "Fifty Shades of Grey".

Previously, she penned the screenplays of films such as Saving Mr. Banks and Fifty Shades of Grey, and is now writing Cruella, a live-action prequel feature film following a young Cruella de Vil, which is set to feature Emma Stone in the lead role.
