Will Philip Seymour Hoffman Terrorize Spider-Man As the Villainous Venom?

By

You wouldn't normally think of Topher Grace and Philip Seymour Hoffman going up for the same roles, and yet when it comes to the Spider-Man reboot, all bets appear to be off. Buried deep into a Deadline report about the movie's still-uncast female leads, Mike Fleming drops a super-weird bombshell: Industry scuttlebut has it that Hoffman is being courted to play the villainous Venom, whom Grace transformed into in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3. Also of note: Dianna Agron is now in the running for blonde love interest Gwen Stacy, yet her arduous one-line-an-episode work schedule on Glee may be a stumbling block. [Deadline]
