Venom 3 takes an exciting step forward

A familiar face has received a promotion.

Sony Pictures has decided on Kelly Marcel to follow Andy Serkis as director after previously writing, Venom and Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

Marcel has traditionally been a writer, having written Fifty Shades of Grey and Disney's Saving Mr. Banks

Like the previous two Venom movies, Marcel is set to collaborate with Hardy on the story for Venom 3

And then turn it into the script, in addition to directing.

Sony has not commented on Marcel's promotion.

When Venom: Let There Be Carnage came out, Hardy spoke about how he'd been thinking ahead to connect the movie to future sequels.
