Venom: Let There Be Carnage producer Dan Wilson has admitted to concerns over resuming the film’s production due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Since the coronavirus hit the United States, it has changed the lives of many and altered many businesses and industries. The film industry was no exception to this and the productions of many films and television shows were shut down and the release dates of many more were pushed back. This, of course, included Tom Hardy’s upcoming film, Venom: Let There Be Carnage. However, as the country slowly reopens there are many within the film industry who are less eager to get back to work.
During an interview with Vanity Fair, Venom: Let There Be Carnage producer Dan Wilson expressed his concerns over resuming production and how everyone seems to be nervous at the very idea of it:
“Nobody wants to go into an environment that’s going to be risky and that goes for crew members too. It’s not just talent. It’s everybody involved on set. There’s a nervousness and that’s natural and understandable. In the plans that we’ve discussed, they’ve certainly taken that into account and we’ll see when we get there, I guess.”

The evolution story of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex and badass character – Venom! Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is a broken man after he loses everything including his job and fiancée.
