Once Upon a Time in Hollywood cinematographer roped in for Venom 2

After Andy Serkis taking up directorial duties, the Robert Richardson has been announecd as the cinematographer of the film 

Published: 18th August 2019

Robert Richardson, the three-time Academy Award-winning cinematographer who is coming off of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has signed on to shoot Venom 2.

Andy Serkis was tapped last week to helm the sequel to Sony's 2018 hit, and the move now reunites him with the director of photography of his directorial debut, the 2017 drama Breathe. Richardson’s boarding also shows how fast the studio is moving on the project.

Tom Hardy is reprising his role of a crusading journalist who merges with a ravenous alien symbiote. Michelle Williams is also expected to return, as is Woody Harrelson, who was featured as last-minute cameo chief Venom villain Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage. Kelly Marcel has written the script.

Richardson has worked with on numerous success projects, shooting Casino, Bringing Out the Dead, Shine a Light, The Aviator, Shutter Island and Hugo. The latter and Aviator got him Oscar wins.

In July, reports placed Richardson as working on The Batman with director Matt Reeves, but those proved to be erroneous, with Rogue One’s Greig Fraser being the DP to get that job.
