Together with the first movie’s director Ruben Fleischer occupied producing that the Zombieland sequel, actor-turned-director Andy Serkis was hailed as his replacement, apparently beating Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ Rupert Wyatt and Bumblebee’s Travis Knight into the top occupation.
“It is happening,” Serkis composed on Twitter. “The Symbiote has discovered a bunch in me and I am prepared for the ride…Can not wait!”

Notably, Serkis has a lot of expertise with motion animation or capture techniques, suggesting that the sequel may be showing off a much more inventive and visually arresting take on the CGI symbiote. (Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson, who recently teamed with Tarantino on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, will be linking Serkis on the movie.)
“It’s a fantastic franchise and I’m honored to be asked to direct it,” Serkis said (through IGN). “It seems like a very modern narrative, and I believe, hopefully, it’s likely to be an outstanding piece of cinema.
Explaining that he was “at the beginning phases” of putting the movie together, ” he added, “I have some very clear ideas about what I need to see visually, and how we can take the characters into some other dimension.”
Much of the creative leadership of the film, though, will come from celebrity and executive producer Hardy. “Tom is very involved with all the writing with Kelly Marcel of the new narrative, so it’s very much based around their take,” Serkis said (through /Film.)
When will theaters release
While it’s been officially confirmed yet, it appears fairly likely that the Venom sequel is going to be released on October 2nd, 2020.
Sony has spared that slot to get an “Untitled Sony/Marvel sequel,” and the first film came out in October to great achievement there’s no reason to suspect that the studio could attempt to fix something which worked.
The film is rumored to start filming on 18th November 2019 in Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in Watford, England.
