“Rogue One” and “The Night Of” star Riz Ahmed is in talks to join the “Spider-Man” spin-off “Venom” at Sony Pictures.
Tom Hardy is starring as the title character. In the comics, he’s a photographer named Eddie Brock who, when bonded with an alien symbiote, becomes Venom.
Ahmed’s role is under wraps, but it’s confirmed he will NOT be playing the film’s villain Carnage which has yet to be cast. Ahmed was reportedly considered for the role before script changes were made.
Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”) is directing the project, the first in a planned series of films based on “Spider-Man” characters. “Venom” is set to open October 5th next year.
