Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney has joined Dakota Johnson in Sony’s planned Madame Web film.
Sony is quickly building up its Spider-Man universe after the success of No Way Home and their two Venom films. Next up, the studio will bring Morbius to the big screen, with other notable Spider-Man characters getting spin-offs down the line. A movie following Madame Web is one of those projects in the works with Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson set to star. Deadline is now reporting that Sydney Sweeney will also be part of the film’s cast.
Sydney Sweeney is best known for her roles in HBO’s hit series Euphoria and The Handmaid’s Tale. There are currently no details on who Sweeney will play in Madame Web. S.J. Clarkson will direct the Madame Web film from Sony with Matt Sazama, Burk Sharpless, and Kerm Sanga behind its script.
Here is the synopsis for Sony’s next Marvel film, Morbius:
One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed and transforms this healer into a hunter.
Directed Daniel Espinosa from a script written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the film stars Jared Leto as the lead anti-hero, Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the project with Lucas Foster, while Palak Patel will oversee for Sony.
Morbius will hit theaters on April 1, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Sony’s plans for their Spider-Man universe, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
