Director Daniel Espinosa, best known for his film Safe House, is reportedly in talks to helm the film, following a purported meeting with Leto that solidified the project for both parties.

This is a horror action story of a scientist who, in trying to find a cure for a rare blood disease, accidentally transformed himself into a living vampire who, though disgusted by his own bloodlust, chooses to prey upon criminals he deems unworthy of life.

He's a vampire, so it's hope this is more Blade than Twilight. He first appeared in 1971's Amazing Spider-Man No. 101 - the first issue not written by Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee.

The film will be produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach alongside Lucas Foster, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

BNSF: Estimated 230000 gallons of oil spilled in derailment
ConocoPhillips spokesman Daren Beaudo said each tanker can hold more than 25,000 gallons (20,817 imperial gallons) of oil. Metropolitan Utilities District, which provides the Omaha metro area's drinking water, said it was monitoring the spill.

This universe does not overlap with the Spider-Man played by Tom Holland in the Marvel movies. There's also the recently announced Silk movie, as well as Silver and Black and Nightwatch, the latter of which has Spike Lee interested in directing.

Leto's performance as The Joker in Suicide Squad was met with mixed reactions, though, possibly the more widespread reactions are those attributed to how he prepared for the role. Michael Keaton's Vulture will return, while Jake Gyllenhaal has signed to play the main antagonist Mysterio. "Venom" will see the actor playing Eddie Brock, a freelance photographer who becomes infected by an alien lifeform and turns into a half-human, half-alien villain - and who sees Spider-Man as his arch nemesis.
