Best known for his masterful motion capture work on the Lord Of The Rings and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes franchises, Andy Serkis (Mowgli: Legend Of The Jungle) has been confirmed to direct Sony’s Venom 2, which once again stars Tom Hardy as the popular anti-hero.
The original 2018 film grossed a surprising $856 million at the global box office. The success led to Sony’s fast tracking for the follow-up and a possible crossover with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in the near future.
Kelly Marcel wrote the script for Venom 2 which will most likely see the emergence of Carnage, who was teased and played by Woody Harrelson (War Of The Planet Of The Apes) at the end of Venom.
