Jared has reportedly been loosely tied to the movie for a while now, but he didn’t want to fully take on the project until he knew it was “headed in the right direction.”

Morbius is “a scientist who tried to cure himself of a blood disease, with tragic results. He became afflicted with vampiric traits such as fangs and a thirst for blood — and wound up battling Spider-Man.”

Sony has not yet given the film an official release date, but production is expected to begin this year.

Jared is also reportedly working on a standalone Joker movie.
