Tom Hardy Based His ‘Venom’ Character on 3 Incredibly Unlikely People
Who knew Woody Allen, Conor McGregor and Redman had something in common?
We weren’t expecting this.
But we didn’t think he went this deep…
In Venom, the dual roles of Eddie Brock and Venom reminded him of three wildly different traits of three wildly different people: “Woody Allen’s tortured neurosis and all the humor that can come from that.
Conor McGregor—the überviolence but not all the talking. And Redman”—the rapper—“out of control, living rent-free in his head.”
Those are not details he revealed to the execs at Sony, which is producing the movie. “You don’t say shit like that to the studio,” he says.
Man, that would be quite the dinner party!
Marvel is being extremely tight-lipped about the plot of the film, but this is what Wikipedia offers:
Following a scandal, journalist Eddie Brock attempts to revive his career by investigating the Life Foundation, but comes into contact with an alien symbiote that bonds with Brock, giving him superpowers as long as they share the same body.
