Jenny Slate In Talks To Join Venom Cast
Splashels, Jenny Slate is in negotiations to join Tom Hardy in Sony’s Venom movie. Though we can’t say for sure, rumors say she will play a scientist. Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Dark Tower) and recently added Kelly Marcel (50 Shades of Grey… wait. Wuh???) will write the script for Venom, with Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach producing the movie, along with Amy Pascal. Palak Patel and Eric Fineman are overseeing the project for Columbia Pictures.
So far the cast includes Hardy, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed; with Ruben Fleischer directing. No, Venom will not be a part of the MCU. Yes, if this goes the way of Deadpool, I’m sure we’ll be see a lot more of Eddie Brock in Sony’s Marvelverse. I have to say, I love Riz and Tom Hardy, but the rest of this is starting to look like doom. Am I alone, or is anyone else smelling a Fantastic Four kind of vibe in the air? Let me know in the comments.
Venom is set to hit theaters on Oct. 5, 2018.
