Fresh off great reviews for his work on War For The Planet Of The Apes and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and on the cusp of his appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story, several outlets are reporting that he is currently in talks to join Sony’s Venom film. If he does join the cast, he’ll be in great company. The movie, which is already in production, stars Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock/ Venom, alongside Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, and Jenny Slate.
The question is, who would he be playing? The only source claiming to have that knowledge is Variety, who says he would be playing some sort of henchman. That said, it sounds a bit silly that Harrelson would sign on to a film just to play a lackey. If anything odds are that he’d be joining up to play Kletus Cassidy/Carnage. Given his work in Natural Born Killers, we know he plays a hell of a psycho, and it would be a part that would probably end up getting expanded upon in a sequel.
One way or another, we’ll know when Venom hits theaters on October 5, 2018.
