Tom Hardy Receives Writing Credit For Venom Sequel | Entertainment
Tom Hardy has contributed to the script for “Venom: Let There Be Carnage”.
The 43-year-old actor is set to reprise his role as Venom / Eddie Brock opposite Woody Harrelson as the Carnage supervillain in the upcoming installment of the Marvel franchise.
And screenwriter Kelly Marcel has revealed that the movie star has a new role for the second film and is “very involved” in the story of her beloved character.
She told Empire: “It’s new for him, to get credit. But it’s nothing new for him to be so involved.
“He’s 100% committed to everything he does. He’s married to ‘Venom’. He loves this character. He’s very involved in what he thinks should happen.”
While the “Dunkirk” star did not take the pen, he took part in a series of video calls to share his ideas.
Kelly continued, “He doesn’t have a pen to write on. We spent months telling the story together on FaceTime, looking for ideas, seeing what worked, seeing what didn’t.
“Then I took everything we talked about and hid somewhere for three months quietly, eliminating a script.”
“He doesn’t have a pen to write on. We spent months telling the story together on FaceTime, brainstorming ideas, seeing what worked, seeing what didn’t.”
The sequel to ‘Venom’ is directed by Andy Serkis – who succeeded Ruben Fleischer – and he previously teased that the film would be “thrilling”, although he declined to give specific details.
He said: “I really can’t say too much about it, but we have 40 days of filming and it’s really exciting.
“We have the gorgeous Tom Hardy in the middle and we see a deepening of the relationship between him and Venom.
“Obviously there is an enemy character … and that’s all I can say.
“It’s going well and we have a fantastic cast in it.”
