We had learned last month that actor/filmmaker Andy Serkis was in contention to direct Tom Hardy in Sony’s Venom 2, and THR confirms tonight that he has landed the gig.

Serkis, known for his incredible motion capture performances in the Lord of the Rings and Planet of the Apes films, recently directed Netflix’s Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle.

THR notes, “[Serkis’s] expertise with CG and performance capture technology is one of the factors that landed him the Venom 2 gig.” He truly is a perfect fit for this one.

The sequel’s script was written by Kelly Marcel.

Ruben Fleischer helmed the 2018 movie, which grossed over $800 million worldwide and set the stage for Woody Harrelson to appear in Venom 2 as Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage.
