'Venom' Might Enlist Michelle Williams to Star Opposite Tom Hardy

'Venom' Might Enlist Michelle Williams to Star Opposite Tom Hardy

Whether Marvel fans are pumped for it or not, Sony is continuing to assemble the many intricate pieces of their planned VENOM movie starring Tom Hardy.

The film is being directed by Zombieland helmer Ruben Fleischer, with Hardy on board as Eddie Brock. Sony had no comment on the casting.

The original report notes that studio execs and Fleischer "had been meeting with multiple actresses for the part for the past month" and "given all the positive input" on the recently released trailer for Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World, which stars Williams opposite Bradley Cooper, they chose to move forward with adding the actress to the film's call sheet.

Sony execs and Fleischer had been meeting with multiple actresses for the part for the past month, with production beginning next month. Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner are writing the script. She's an actress who's constantly finding new and interesting roles, so it's surprising to see her sign on to play the love interest in a superhero movie.

The Venom movie will be a part of the same Spider-Man-adjacent shared Marvel Comics universe as Silver and Black, Sony's upcoming film about Silver Sable and Black Cat.

OxFORD Asset Management LLP Has $7.03 Million Position in GlaxoSmithKline PLC (GSK)
Finally, TheStreet lowered GlaxoSmithKline PLC from a "b" rating to a "c+" rating in a research note on Wednesday, July 26th. Jefferies Group LLC restated a "buy" rating on shares of GlaxoSmithKline plc in a research note on Sunday, February 19th.

"Venom" is set for release in cinemas on October 5th, 2018.

Spider-Man has the most impressive array of villains of any Marvel superhero. Hardy has been known to revive or add an interesting flair to genre films (Mad Max: Fury Road and The Dark Knight Rises), and Williams consistently picks quality prestige pictures or out-of-the-box projects.

If a deal should make, it will mark a change of pace for Williams, who is a four-time Oscar nominees for dramas such as Manchester by the Sea, My Week With Marilyn, Blue Valentine and Brokeback Mountain. Her last big studio film was Disney's "Wizard of Oz" prequel, "Oz the Great and Powerful", in 2013.

Williams is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment.
