Kelly Marcel will be back to write the Venom 2 script.
Venom 2 has found its screenwriter, according to Variety. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it's Kelly Marcel, who wrote the first one. Her deal to return for the sequel is said to be "siginificant," but the site wasn't able to reveal the exact amount Marcel had been offered to play with the notorious symbiote story for Sony this time around.
If you're asking yourself why the studio wouldn't get some fresh blood in for the Venom sequel, the Fifty Shades Of Grey writer staying on might have something to do with star Tom Hardy. The two have been close friends for years.
Marcel first met Hardy when she was working on a stage musical version of Debbie Does Dallas for the Edinburgh Festival, and some of her first film gigs were doing uncredited rewrites on 2008's Bronson and Mad Max: Fury Road,
