With SPIDERMAN FAR FROM HOME crossing the $1 billion worldwide gross line it seems that the executives at Sony are now even more eager to get the sequel to VENOM starring Tom Hardy rocking and rolling.
Sony is currently trying to find out who will helm the film starring Tom Hardy as reporter Eddie Brock who becomes bonded with an alien symbiote that endows him with superhuman abilities. Ruben Fleischer directed the first film but will not return for the sequel as he is currently in post-production on ZOMBIELAND DOUBLE TAP and Sony would like to begin filming in the fall.
Those in the mix for the directorial task with Andy Serkis, who directed MOWGLI:LEGEND OF THE JUNGLE, Travis Knight, director of BUMBLEBEE and Rupert Wyatt who directed RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and most recently CAPTIVE STATE.
Nothing is official as of now but as more news develops stay tuned here.
