Naomie Harris in Talks to Play Shriek in Venom 2

-

We only learned a few days ago that the villain Shriek may be featured in Sony Pictures sequel Venom 2, and now Variety is reporting that the actress in talks for the role is none other than Naomie Harris! Harris is probably best known for playing Moneypenny in the new James Bond films and received an Oscar nomination for her role in Moonlight.

Shriek first appeared in 1993 in Spider-Man Unlimited Vol. 1, #1 as part of the gang of villains who roamed New York with Carnage, who is sometimes her partner. Her real name is Frances Louise Barrison, but she also goes by Sandra Deel. She was a drug dealer and a mutant with the ability to manipulate sound.

Andy Serkis is directing Venom 2. Ruben Fleischer directed the first movie, which grossed an impressive $856 million worldwide in 2018.

Tom Hardy is set to return as the title character in the Venom sequel, while Michelle Williams will be back as Anne Weying and Woody Harrelson will return as Cletus Kasady/Carnage.

Kelly Marcel (Disney’s upcoming CruellaFifty Shades of Grey) wrote the script. Marcel, who will also executive produce the movie, was one of the screenwriters on the first film. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal will produce again.

Venom tells the evolution story of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass character. Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a broken man after he loses everything including his job and fiancee. Just when his life is at its lowest, he becomes host to an alien symbiote which results in extraordinary superpowers – transforming him into Venom.

Venom 2 May Be Adding a Second Villain with Shriek
