Andy Serkis is set to direct a third “Venom” movie.
The “Lord of the Rings” actor directed the superhero sequel “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” and admits he would love to return to the franchise as he looked forward to working with Naomie Harris, Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson and Tom Hardy.
Andy told Hey U Guys.com: “It was such a joy to make a movie with some of the greatest actors on the planet.”
The star explained how he came to direct his fifth film, saying that Hardy himself personally requested it.
He said, “Tom Hardy called me out of the blue and said, ‘Andy, I would really like to throw your hat in the ring. Could this interest you? “
Serkis boarded the project after reading the script designed by Tom and Kelly Marcel, which enabled him and Tom to realize a career ambition.
He said: “I loved it the first time around, and I especially liked his performance in the first movie, and Tom and I had wanted to work together for many years.
“It was really a gift because you know the hard work that went into putting this story together was done in so many ways.”
The “Planet of the Apes” star said it was great to be able to really investigate the relationship between Eddie Brock and Venom, “who really know each other” after the 2018 film, which told Eddie’s story, an investigative reporter, who became the host of Venom, an alien symbiote.
Andy said, “It’s got to a really interesting point where we could now investigate more fully the real relationship between Eddie and Venom. Now they know each other. “
“You could really look at Eddie and Venom’s personality and how they would fit, how they didn’t fit into the dysfunction, into their relationship.”
