Actor Woody Harrelson is currently in talks to join the Venom film, Variety reports.

Yup, the actor who has quietly made his way into more than a few big name franchises in the past several years may very well be making his way to the big comic book property.

Harrelson will be joining big actors like Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, and of course, Tom Hardy, who are all already on board. When all said and done, it’s not incredibly surprising that Harrelson would join this film. After all, he has worked with director Ruben Fleischer in the past in the action-comedy Zombieland back in 2009. This Venom film is an opportunity for them to work together once again.

Venom is written by Jumanji writer Scott Rosenberg and The Dark Tower screenwriter Jeff Pinkner. This film is set to be a spinoff of sorts to the Spider-Man character in Spider-Man: Homecoming — though, to be clear, neither Spider-Man himself nor any of the Avengers will likely ever make an appearance in this new pocket universe.

In addition to The Hunger Games franchise, Harrelson has always made appearances in War for the Planet of the Apes, and we’ll also be showing up in next year’s Solo: A Star Wars Story.

    There are still talks? Thursday Disney/Marvel are just going to shut this down. The only way this would work for me is if Marvel takes the reigns and actually makes something decent with it. Spidey would go to space with the Infinity War and after, and come back with the symbiote. At that point I would trust Feige could turn Tom Hardy into an anti-hero, but not before going a few rounds with Spidey. Just scrap everything Fox had planned until now.

      Makes a lot of sense…except…Fox has nothing to do with this Venom is a Sony property.

      Sorry Charlie.
