It depends on the story, Arad said. If the success of the story depends on being R-rated, then, of course, we can do it. But at least for me, I have grandkids, kids, whatever, all these things, and some of these movies, theyre dying to see.
Although Sony has announced development onseveral Spider-Man spin-offmovies over the past year, the future of this latest superhero universe was very dependent on the success ofVenom. After all, the failure of last yearsThe Mummykilled Universals planned classic monster universebefore it even started. Luckily,Venomhas proved to be abox office smash, ensuring that more movies featuring characters from Spidey comic books are on the way.
The Morbius movie will be directed by Daniel Espinosa, who previously helmed the sci-fi horror movieLifeand the Denzel Washington thrillerSafe House,with the screenplay byLost In Spaces Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama. The film doesnt yet have a release date, but an early 2019 production start means we are unlikely to see it before 2020.
Arad and Tomnach were also asked if the Morbius film would have a PG-13 rating likeVenomor would deliver the R-rated version of the story that many older fans might want to see. While they didnt answer this directly, they didnt rule out future movies in their Spider-universe carrying the stronger rating.
This is the great thing for us now, that an actor like him, and an actor like Tom wanted to have their own character, he said. The character they love. Both of them, [theyre] very hard to get them to do a movie. You actually cannot get them. We went in, we sat with them, and everybody told us, Oh, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba. Nothing. [But] thats what [they] wanted to do.
A movie focusing on Morbius the Living Vampire was firstannouncedback in November 2017, and it has now been confirmed that the film will start shooting soon. In an interview withCollider, Sony producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach revealed that they plan to start production in February 2019.
