Let the carnage continue for Venom.
Tom Hardy–the star of the first two Venom installments–is taking a proactive role in Venom 3 (or whatever the title ends up being) by co-writing the screenplay with Kelly Marcel (who penned the first two films). Check out an Instagram post from Hardy that shows the cover page of the script-in-progress.

The search is still on for someone to sit in the director’s chair for the threequel, but Andy Serkis–who helmed last year’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage–has said he would be interested in returning for another symbiote saga.
“There’s so much potential in the Venomverse for really interesting journeys,” Serkis said late last year. “I think Kelly and Tom have been thinking about the next stage of the journey. When you’re going into a franchise, you’ve got to think about the arc. You can’t think about them individually.”
Carnage–directed by Serkis from a screenplay by Marcel–was a successful sequel to 2018’s Venom that finds Eddie Brock (Hardy) in conflict with serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) after he becomes the host of another symbiote, Carnage.
The sequel–delayed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic–was a box office hit, earning more than $500 million worldwide on a $110-million budget.
