Woody Harrelson may only appear briefly in the upcoming Venom, but he is apparently set to return in a bigger role for the film’s sequel.
In an interview with Collider, Harrelson was asked about his work on the upcoming superhero flick.
“I’m in a little fraction of this movie, but I’ll be in the next one, you know? So I haven’t read that script, but anyways, just rolled the dice.”
As IGN previously reported, Harrelson joined Venom late last year. At the time, sources said Harrelson would be playing a “Henchman” character, but few details were available. When pressed for details about his character in Collider, Harrelson did not offer any new information.
Ruben Fleischer is helming the upcoming movie, and Harrelson cited Fleischer as one of the motivating reasons for joining the cast.
“Well, you know, Ruben Fleischer did Zombieland, directed it, so that was a big part of it. And also, Tom Hardy, I really respect and think he’s one of the great actors. So that, coupled with what is a really wonderful script, I felt like I kind of should, you know?”
Harrelson can currently be seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story, which debuted to less-than-stellar box office returns over the weekend. Check out IGN’s review of the movie and our continuing coverage on what you might have missed in the film.
