X-Men films Producer added to Venom 2
Parker has previously worked on the Marvel films X2: X-Men United, Dark Phoenix, Logan, X-Men: Days of Future Past
Hutch Parker, the executive-turned-producer who worked on the recent X-Men movies, will produce the sequel to Sony’s Spider-Man-centric Marvel-based movie being directed by Andy Serkis.
Parker joins producers Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, and Matt Tolmach on the project, which is heading toward a shooting start in mid-November. Parker, reportedly, quietly joined the project several months ago at the request of film chief Tom Rothman.
Tom Hardy is reprising his role as the crusading journalist who bonds with a ravenous alien symbiote. Michelle Williams and Reid Scott are also due to return, as is Woody Harrelson, who featured in a cameo in the 2018 movie.
Parker already has ample experience working with Marvel characters. As an executive at Fox, he worked on several X-Men movies dating back to X2: X-Men United. When he transitioned to producing, he worked almost exclusively on Fox's Marvel films, ranging from Joshua Trank’s Fantastic Four and Simon Kinberg’s recent Dark Phoenix to the Oscar-nominated Logan and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
