WATCH: Jared Leto confirms Morbius: The Living Vampire is about to start filming…

November 16th, 2018 by Marc Comments

With Venom performing so well for Sony, we now get conformation from Jared Leto that he’s getting ready to start filming Morbius: The Living Vampire, another movie in the same universe as Venom.

Well, at least we know he’s shaving for the gig as he shared a video below with ‘and so it begins… MORBIUS’ written on it.

So it looks like cameras are settee begin rolling.

Safe House director Daniel Espinosa is tipped to direct the movie about Morbius: The Living Vampire:

Despite his initial status as one of Spider-Man’s horror-based rogues, Morbius went on to become a brooding and gritty, albeit heroic and tragically flawed anti-hero in his own series and other titles. Morbius’ true identity is that of a former award-winning biochemist named: Michael Morbius, who is imbued with vampiric superhuman abilities and physical traits stemming from a failed biochemical experiment, which was intended to cure his rare blood disorder, as opposed to supernatural means, with the rest of his appearances featuring his struggles with his inhuman-like vampiric persona, his insatiable lust for human blood, and his subsequent efforts to cure his horrific condition, along with his eventual stint as a brutal and nightmarish vigilante.

According to Variety,  “Leto has been loosely attached to the project for some time, but wouldn’t fully commit until he knew the film was headed in the right direction. He asked to meet with several of the filmmakers who were up for the job. Espinosa met with Leto last month in Germany while Leto was touring with his band Thirty Seconds to Mars, which eventually led to him nabbing the job.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
