Tom Hardy Is Getting a 'Story By' Credit for the First Time in His Career for 'Venom 2'

This is a first for Tom Hardy!

The 43-year-old actor will be getting his very first “story by” credit of his feature film career for his upcoming movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage. When the credits roll at the end of the movie, you’ll see his name alongside the “Story By” category.

“This is new for him, to get credit,” screenwriter Kelly Marcel told Empire, “but it’s not new for him to be this involved. He’s absolutely 100 per cent committed to everything that he does.”

“He’s married to Venom,” Kelly said. “He loves this character. He’s very involved in what he thinks should happen.”

Kelly added, “He doesn’t get a pen and write. We spent months breaking the story together on FaceTime, riffing on ideas, seeing what worked, seeing what didn’t. Then I took everything we spoke about and holed up somewhere for three months quietly, knocking out a script.”

The film will debut in theaters on September 24, 2021. Watch the trailer for the film right here!
