Andy Serkis is in the mix to tackle Sony's Venom sequel, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
But Serkis, who is known for his critically acclaimed and beloved work in the motion capture space as well as a turn as a villain in Black Panther, is not up for acting work in the project. Rather, he is being looked at as a potential director for the sequel to the 2018 hit that starred Tom Hardy as a journalist who joins with an alien symbiote.

Insiders say these are just meetings and no one has moved into a front-runner position.
Sony hopes to shoot the film in the fall.
