The Serpent actor Tahar Rahim, who played Charles Sobhraj will be playing a pivotal role in the upcoming film Madame Web. The film is one of the films on the Sony slate, and Rahim's role is currently kept under the wraps by the makers. 

Also on board, Madame Web, are Sydney Sweeney, Celeste O'Connor, and Isabela Merced for director SJ Clarkson. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless pen the screenplay, with Kerem Sanga also reportedly penning a previous draft. In the comics, Madame Web is depicted as an elderly woman with myasthenia gravis and thus was connected to a life-support system that looked like a spider web. Due to her age and medical condition, Madame Web never actively fought any villains.

It is possible the project could turn into something else according to sources quoted by Deadline. Insiders say that due to her psychic sensory powers, she is essentially Sony's version of Doctor Strange. Rahim's role in the film is currently being kept under the wraps.

Sony is coming off a hot streak with Venom: Let There Be Carnage making more than $500 million worldwide, while Spider-Man: No Way Home was the biggest film of 2021 with $1.85 billion in worldwide sales.

Rahim recently wrapped filming Ridley Scott's Napoleon, in which he co-starred opposite Joaquin Phoenix. Up next, he will be in Apple TV+ and Scott Z Burns' limited series Extrapolations, as well as Don Juan, a French musical directed by Serge Bozon that recently premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
