Goyer says 'Venom' is too expensive

By Rob M. Worley     August 25, 1998

Blade screenwriter David Goyer spoke to the DNCC and the subject of a movie based on Marvel's spider-villain 'Venom ' also came up.  Goyer had completed a screenplay for Venom but the project's been stalled.  Goyer told the Continuum, "New Line's going to see how Blade does.  The first budget pass (at Venom) was $80 million.  I tend to write big and they didn't know that Venom could support an $80 million movie, so they're kind of waiting to see how Blade does."

Blade opened at #1 at the box office, unseating critical favorite Saving Private Ryan.
