It was recently mentioned that Andy Serkis one of a few notable directors who were up for the job of helming the sequel to the success Sony Pictures, VENOM. Now it is official that Serkis will be directing the anti-hero sequel starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, an out on his luck who is bonded with an alien symbiote that gives him superhuman abilities.
Serkis was among a handful of filmmakers that met with Sony earlier this month, a group that included “Bumblebee” helmer Travis Knight and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes’” Rupert Wyatt. Ruben Fleischer directed the first movie in 2018, but isn’t returning as he is in post-production on the studio’s ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP. Sony is hoping to begin production on the sequel this fall.
Even though Andy Serkis is Best known for his performance capture work in the “Lord of the Rings” and “Planet of the Apes” movies, Serkis has started moving behind the camera in recent years, most recently directing Netflix’s “Jungle Book” spinoff “Mowgli.” His other filmmaking credits include “Breathe” starring Andrew Garfield and Felicity Jones. He also is no stranger to the superhero world having played Uylsses Klaue in both AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON and BLACK PANTHER.
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.

Spider-Man Far From Home hits theaters this summer July 5th
It seems as if Fast and Furious star Tyrese Gibson is heading into Sony’s spin-off Spider-verse. He is currently in talks to join Jared Leto in the upcoming Morbius movie.
Details as to whom Gibson will be portraying are currently undisclosed but the Daniel Espinosa directed film is seemingly getting more star power having just recent added actor Jared Harris to the cast.
Sony’s Spider-verse is adding more star power to its slate of upcoming films. It is being reported by Variety that Primetime Emmy nominee actor Matt Smith Doctor Who, The Crown, and Terminator Genisys; and he can be seen later this year in Disney/Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Episode IX, where he reportedly has a key role has entered final negotiations with Sony Pictures to join their upcoming Spider-Man universe spinoff, Morbius, which stars Academy Award-winner Jared Leto as Dr. Michael Morbius who turns himself into a living vampire.
As for now the details on his role are being kept under wraps, but the report does describe it as major, which more than likely means he could be playing the primary antagonist. But nothing can fully be confirmed until the studio releases the official news.
In addition to Leto and Smith, so far castign announcements include Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim Uprising) who will also star in a key role. Daniel Espinosa (Safe House; Life) is helming the project with a script from Lost in Space creators Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
