Just yesterday, it was reported that director Josh Trank was talking with Sony about doing their "Spider-Man" spinoff "Venom" and now another good piece of news has arrived. Screenwriter Max Landis has been re-upped to pen "Chronicle 2," but whether Trank will come back remains to be seen.

While John Landis hasn't made anything worth talking about since "Coming To America," his son Max Landis is carrying the family name. The up-and-coming scribe penned the forthcoming superhero flick "Chronicle"; he's got “Amnesty” a mysterious project described as a cross between J.R.R. Tolkien and Robert Ludlum with Ron Howard attached and he's penning one of the many Frankenstein pics knocking around Hollywood looking to get made.
