Venom 3 is now in the late stages of pre-production, and Kelly Marcel (who previously worked on both Venom movies) will helm the film as well as work on the screenplay.
In the latest regarding this film, Deadline has reported that Chiwetel Ejiofor is set to co-star opposite Tom Hardy in Venom 3. Details regarding Ejiofor’s character are currently being kept under wraps. Other new stars include Juno Temple and Jemaine Clement.
According to Production Weekly‘s latest listing (THURSDAY, MAY 18, 2023), Venom 3 is scheduled to commence principal photography on June 26, and conclude filming on September 29. It will take 95 days to complete filming.
For comparison, Venom: Let There Be Carnage took 85 days to wrap production, from November 15, 2019 to February 8, 2020. The first Venom movie took 92 days for production, from October 23, 2017 to January 27, 2018. This makes Venom 3 the longest production in the Venom franchise.
The working title of the film is “Orwell”. Filming locations for the film are currently unknown.
Will ‘Venom 3’ Get Delayed?
Now that the Writers Guild of America is on strike, there are several possibilities for Venom 3‘s production. Since Kelly Marcel is writing as well as directing, this makes her position all the more awkward.
According to THR, the Directors Guild of America considers small script changes to typically be part of a director’s workload, and the union’s “no-strike” clause requires it to put a good-faith effort toward requiring members to continue directing during the strike. The answer is: inconclusive. As of now, the film is on track for the June production start date.
Marcel and Hardy will also produce with Marcel writing the screenplay from a story by Marcel and Hardy. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, Amy Pascal, and Hutch Parker are also producing.
Venom 3 does not have a release date yet.
