Woody Harrelson is being ensnared by an offer from Sony for an undisclosed role in Venom. If a deal goes through this will serve as a reunion for Harrelson and filmmaker Ruben Fleischer who worked together on the 2009 comedy Zombieland.
Tom Hardy is playing the title role of Eddie Brock in the Spider-Man offshoot. Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate were also cast in the film. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal are producing. Writing the script is The Fifth Wave scribe Jeff Pinkner from comic’s created by Kelly Marcel, Todd McFarlane and David Michelinie.
Harrelson has had an impressive slew of films this year including War for the Planet of the Apes, The Glass Castle, and Wilson. He has also been cast in next year’s Han Solo film, Solo: A Star Wars Story. He is represented by CAA.
