Variety reports that Bond actress Naomie Harris (Miami Vice, Skyfall, No Time To Die, Spectre) is currently in talks with Sony Pictures to join Tom Hardy in Venom 2 set to be directed by Andy Serkis.
Naomie Harris is in talks to play Spider-Man villain Shriek in Sony’s “Venom 2,” with Tom Hardy returning as the titular anti-hero.
A drug dealer named Frances Barrison became the volatile Shriek after severe trauma allow her latent mutant powers to emerge. In the comics, those powers include sonic energy blasts, flight, and the ability to stir up dark and violent emotions in others.
Shriek might be a mutant, but she debuted in the Spider-Man comics and her mutant background could be altered for the Sony Pictures film.
Filming is set to take place next month at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in Watford, England.
Harris would be joining other supporting leads Woody Harrelson as the film’s main villain Carnage and Michelle Williams.
Sony Pictures has given Venom 2 a release date of October 2nd, 2020.
Journalist Eddie Brock is trying to take down Carlton Drake, the notorious and brilliant founder of the Life Foundation. While investigating one of Drake’s experiments, Eddie’s body merges with the alien Venom — leaving him with superhuman strength and power. Twisted, dark and fueled by rage, Venom tries to control the new and dangerous abilities that Eddie finds so intoxicating.
