Looks like Venom finally has another production date set. According to the product listing site, My Entertainment World, the Sony production is set for an October 23 shooting date, meaning that on Monday of next week, cameras will start rolling on the anti-hero flick.

Venom was originally set to begin production on September 1, but just a week or so prior to that, it was revealed that the film was still assembling its crew in Atlanta, Georgia (one of its shooting locations), and as a result, would face a slight delay. The film is set to hit theaters on October 5, 2018, so they’re cutting it close if they want to meet that release date.

Directing the Venom film is Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer. Starring in the film are Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate. Sadly, apart from Tom Hardy taking on the role of Eddie Brock, we really don’t know much about who’s playing what.

One other interesting tidbit we heard recently was that 50 Shades of Grey screenwriter Kelly Marcel had taken over script duties from Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg. It’s no surprise they were doing more rewrites (Hollywood is infamous for constantly rewriting), but it was an interesting writer to go for (though she did also pen the amazing Saving Mr. Banks) for a superhero film.

Let’s hope they’ve ironed out all the story issues and that the movie’s shooting script is ready to go by next week!
