Reid Scott (“Veep,” “Home Again”) is in talks to join the cast of the Ruben Fleischer-directed “Spider-Man” spin-off film “Venom” at Sony Pictures.
Tom Hardy stars in the title role of a man who bonds with an alien symbiote and becomes ‘Venom,’ a large fanged villain and, ultimately, anti-hero. The character was previously played by Topher Grace on screen in “Spider-Man 3”.
Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate are also on board the new film which Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner and Kelly Marcel are penning. Amy Pascal, Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing.
“Venom” opens in cinemas on October 5th 2018.
