Many highly-anticipated movies had to pause production in the face of Hollywood strikes, but they’ll soon go back to work. Venom 3 is one of them, and its leading star Tom Hardy took to social media to announce that the shooting for the sequel has commenced.

Tom Hardy shared an emotional post on Instagram, accompanied by a behind-the-scenes photo with the director Kelly Marcel and his long-time stunt double Jacob Tomuri. He revealed they’re back to shooting and gave a shout-out to the film’s cast and crew.

“We’ve come a long way – it’s been and continues to be a lot of fun this journey there are always hard turns to burn when we work but doesn’t feel as hard when you love what you do and when you know you have great material and the support at all sides, of a great team,” Hardy wrote on Instagram.

He also sang praises to Marcel, who’s making her directorial debut with Venom 3 after working on the script of the first two films. He wrote that watching her take the helm of this movie fills him with pride, and advised her to trust her gut because her instincts are always spot-on.

In addition to Hardy, Venom 3 will also star Juno Temple and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and it’s set to be released on November 8, 2024.
