Filmed in Atlanta, New York City, and San Francisco.
Tom Hardy plays Venom.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland).
A Venom spinoff has been in development since 2007, shortly after his appearance in Spider-Man 3. In that movie he was played by Topher Grace.
This is a standalone film that's based on the Marvel Comic book character with the same name. The studio intends this movie to be part of a new shared universe that will include Spider-Man: Homecoming.
