Sony Pictures has officially signed Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception) to star as Eddie Brock in their upcoming Venom movie, with Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) to direct. Hardy previously played the DC Comics bad guy Bane in 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises, and will be seen this summer in  Dunkirk.

The studio also released a photo of the actor wearing a Venom T-shirt, and mentioned that he is a “huge fan of Venom”:

 

Venom will be set in Sony’s Marvel Universe of characters and will NOT be a spinoff of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe as is the upcoming Spider-Man movie. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing along with Amy Pascal, with Palak Patel and Eric Fineman overseeing for Columbia Pictures.

Writers Scott Rosenberg (Pain & GainJumanji) & Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) will pen the script for the Venom film, which is set for an October 5, 2018 release date. Production will begin this fall.
