J.C. Chandor is in talks to direct Sony’s Kraven the Hunter. The movie, hailing from Sony’s universe of Marvel characters, is based on Spider-Man’s formidable foe.
Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad are producing the film, and Richard Wenk is writing the screenplay. Kraven the Hunter will be a Spider-Man spinoff centering on the notorious antihero known as Sergei Kravinoff.
Kraven the Hunter is also the half-brother of the disguise master called Chameleon. His character has appeared in numerous Spider-Man adaptations, including an animated series and video games.
In recent years, Sony has continued to build up its superhero slate. Spider-Man: Homecoming and its sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home with Tom Holland, as well as Tom Hardy’s Venom were all huge box office hits.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is the next comic book adaptation on deck from Sony’s arsenal of masked heroes. The follow-up, again starring Hardy as the journalist-turned-alien-symbiote, will be directed by Andy Serkis. It was expected to release in theaters this October, but its big-screen debut was delayed until June 25, 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Also coming next year focusing on the Marvel Comics character Morbius the Living Vampire, Morbuis stars Jared Leto as the movies anti-hero and will be released March 19, 2021.
The upcoming third installment in the Sony/Marvel Tom Holland-led Spider-Man franchise is set for release on December 17th 2021.
