After weeks of speculation and the main star basically letting the cat out of the bag, Sony Pictures has officially confirmed that genre favorite Andy Serkis will indeed helm the sequel to Venom!
Variety broke the official news yesterday and even though Serkis is best known for his work in front of the camera, namely his motion capture performances in Lord Of The Rings And The Planet Of The Apes franchise, Serkis has also done work behind the camera as well with his directorial debut with 2017’s Breathe.
It already appears that Mr. Serkis is deep into the project as he posted on Instagram a picture of himself holding a copy of issue #6 of Venom: Lethal Protector which is the mini-series that defined Eddie Brock as an anti-hero. Check out the post below!
Funny enough, Venom star Tom Hardy posted an image of Serkis last week but quickly took it down probably after someone told him too but not before the wonderful damage was done.
With Serkis being announced, expect more details to come down soon so keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come from Venom 2!
