Director Andy Serkis discusses VENOM 2 production


Over the weekend Venom 2 director Andy Serkis was awarded the Outstanding Contribution award at the star studded BAFTA ceremony in London.

The actor/director is currently pulling a potential double duty as he directs the Venom sequel for Sony Pictures and stars as Alfred Pennyworth in Warner Bros. The Batman which is currently in production in London.

Serkis spoke briefly about the Venom 2 shoot with DigitalSpy, as expected he can’t say too much but it sounds like things are going well.

“Well, you know, I really can’t talk too much about it – I know, boring – but we’re 40 days into the shoot and it’s really thrilling,” he said. “We’ve got the magnificent Tom Hardy, who’s obviously at the centre of it,” he continued, “and we sort of see a deepening of the relationship between him and obviously there’s a nemesis character and… that’s all I can say.”

Andy Serkis directs Venom 2 which stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/Venom, with Michelle Williams returning as Anne Weying. The Film opens in cinemas on October 2, 2020.
