‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ actor, Riz Ahmed, could be co-starring alongside Tom Hardy in ‘Venom’. Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) is set to direct.
It’s possible that Ahmed could be playing the well known Spider-Man villain, Carnage. Ahmed has been making a rise in the film industry with his roles in ‘Rogue One’, ‘Nightcrawler’ and ‘The Night of’ on HBO.
According to Screenrant, ‘Hamilton’ and ‘Moana’ star, Lin-Manuel Miranda has also expressed interest in playing Carnage. ’Shameless’ and ‘Gotham’ star, Cameron Monaghan, has thrown his name in the hat as well.
Ahmed may be the Sony’s first choice for the role, but Miranda and Monaghan will surely make an effort to get Sony’s attention.
