Andy Serkis has confirmed that he has met with Sony to discuss potentially directing Venom 2.
Trade publications recently reported that Serkis – who previously directed Netflix's Mowgli – has entered discussions to helm the upcoming sequel, with Tom Hardy.
Serkis revealed that he has indeed met with the movie's producers to discuss directing the sequel. "Yes I've had meetings with Sony," he said, "so that's potentially something that might happen. But we'll see...."
There are currently still two other names being considered for the position – Bumblebee director Travis Knight and Rise of the Planet of the Apes helmer Rupert Wyat.
Before Venom 2, Hardy and Serkis will work together on the BBC's latest adaptation of A Christmas Carol. Starring Guy Pearce as Scrooge, the series will see Serkis play the Ghost of Christmas Past with Hardy as an executive producer.
