Kelly Marcel to Make Directorial Debut With ‘Venom 3’

Deadline has reported that screenwriter Kelly Marcel will be making her directorial debut with Venom 3. Marcel co-wrote the first installment of Venom with Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, and was the sole screenwriter for its sequel, Let There Be Carnage.

Andy Serkis directed the last installment, which was met with better critical reception than Ruben Fleischer‘s 2018 film, which saw Tom Hardy play Eddie Brock/Venom, one of Spider-Man’s best antagonists. Hardy briefly reprised his role in Jon WattsSpider-Man: No Way Home, during a post-credit scene, which saw him getting sucked back into his own universe by leaving a small piece of symbiote behind.

Details on the plot aren’t currently known, but Hardy is expected to return as Venom, which means that Michelle Williams could also reprise her role as Anne Weying as well. No release date has currently been announced, with Marcel hard at work on writing the screenplay for the movie.

Kelly Marcel was also the writer of the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation, and did her damnedest to turn that unreadable book into a watchable movie. Might have even succeeded, too, but for the author of that unreadable book.
