Director Andy Serkis’ Venom 2 starring Tom Hardy is currently filming. And today Serkis gave us all an update on how things are going.
Serkis tells Digital Spy: “Well, you know, I really can’t talk too much about it – I know, boring – but we’re 40 days into the shoot and it’s really thrilling. We’ve got the magnificent Tom Hardy, who’s obviously at the center of it, and we sort of see a deepening of the relationship between him and obviously there’s a nemesis character and… that’s all I can say.”
The much-anticipated sequel is set to star Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock / Venom along with Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady / Carnage, Michelle Williams as Eddie’s ex-fiancée Anne Weying, Reid Scott as Anne’s boyfriend Dan Lewis, and Naomie Harris as Shriek.
Venom 2 will be directed by Andy Serkis and produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, and Hutch Parker from a screenplay written by Kelly Marcel based on the character created by David Michelinie and Todd McFarlane. Columbia Pictures will unleash it on October 2, 2020.
Producer Matt Tolmach says that, while the original film was rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for language, the sequel may end up being rated R due to the success of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. Fingers crossed. We’ll let you know when we hear more.
