Director Andy Serkis has offered a small filming update on his upcoming sequel to Venom which is expected to see Eddie Brock go head-to-head against Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady/Carnage and Carnage’s love interest Frances Louise Barrison/Shriek, played by Naomie Harris.
Speaking to press at the BAFTAs (via ComicBook), Serkis offered an update on the film but declined to go into too much detail:
“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,” Serkis said. “We’ve got the magnificent Tom Hardy, who’s obviously at the centre 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.”
Venom 2 is currently shooting in the UK and is set for release on October 2nd, 2020 which sees Andy Serkis (Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle) directing returning cast members Tom Hardy (Eddie Brock/Venom), Michelle Williams (Anne Weying) and Woody Harrelson (Cletus Kasady/Carnage) alongside new additions Naomie Harris (No Time To Die) and Stephen Graham (The Irishman).
