He also talks about when they shot the post-credits scene and Taika Waititi’s sports comedy ‘Next Goal Wins.’
With Venom: Let There Be Carnage now playing in theaters, I recently landed an extended interview with director Andy Serkis to talk about the making of the Venom sequel. During the wide-ranging interview he talked about how they always planned for a fast moving and lean film, the way they figured out how many VFX shots they could get with their budget, how the script and story changed during production, what he learned from other directors that he took with him to this project, the post-credits scene, how he landed the gig, how they came up with the club scene where Venom takes the stage, if they ever had another title in mind, and more. In addition, Serkis talked about producing Taika Waititi’s sports comedy Next Goal Wins, and the upcoming Luther movie with Idris Elba.
As most of you know, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is about Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) trying to get his career back on track by interviewing serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) as a favor to the San Francisco police. Unfortunately, Cletus Kasady becomes the host of the symbiote Carnage and escapes prison after a failed execution. Venom 2 also stars Michelle Williams, Naomie Harris, Reid Scott, and Stephen Graham. The film was written by Kelly Marcel, based on a story she wrote with Hardy.
