Adi Shankar Being Eyed For VENOM Movie
News of the Venom movie has been circulating the internet since it was thought Life was a secret prequel to the film and most recently with reports that it will be a hard R. Well, now the rumor is that producer Adi Shankar will helm the film.
Now while Adi is not the most known name, you’ve definitely seen his work. He is mainly an executive producer and he’s been behind films like The Grey, Dredd, Killing Them Softly, Lone Survivor and The Voices, he will head the Castlevania series and he has his own short film universe with titles like The Punisher: Dirty Laundry, Power/Rangers, James Bond: In Service of Nothing, and Venom: Truth in Journalism (probably why he’s the main pick). It makes sense that he would be a director they’re eyeing and while some people are skeptical, I love all of his shorts so he has my approval. Let’s hope Sony doesn’t mess this one up!
