Fresh off the news last month that Michelle Williams was joining Sony’s Venom, now comes word that Jenny Slate is also now in talks to board the film.
As per Variety, the Gifted and Obvious Child actress is in negotiations to play a scientist in the Tom Hardy-starrer. There’s no word at this stage if that particular scientist would be an existing Marvel comic book character or not.
In addition to Hardy, Williams and potentially Slate, the only other confirmed cast member right now is Rogue One’s Riz Ahmed. Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg are currently penning the Venom screenplay, with Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer on directing duties.
At present, Venom is currently set for an October 2018 release.
