It’s official, Tom Hardy will step beyond only his acting role in the next iteration of the “Venom” movie franchise and assume the position as a co-writer for the film. The news came from the star’s official Instagram account!

The post from the actor can be seen below!

Hardy also shared the script cover to his Instagram story, along with a “Last Dance” caption, which we can only assume means Hardy does not plan to return to the franchise after this third film.

As we all know, that doesn’t mean Sony couldn’t find another actor to take on the role. But, it may be the end for Hardy.

The news of Hardy taking a more creative hand in this third film is not a complete shock as the actor spoke on many ideas he had for this film back in August.

“I would be remiss if I wasn’t trying to steer any kind of connectivity,” Hardy was referring to a potential Spider-Man crossover at the time. “I wouldn’t be doing the job if I wasn’t awake and open to any opportunity or eventuality or be excited by that. Obviously, that’s a large canyon to leap, to be bridged by one person alone, and it would take a much higher level of diplomacy and intelligence, sitting down and talking, to take on an arena such as that.”

“Should both sides be willing, and it be beneficial to both sides, I don’t see why it couldn’t be,” he continued. “I hope and strongly, with both hands, push, eagerly, towards that potential, and would do anything to make that happen, within what’s right in business. But it would be foolish not to head towards the Olympic Games if you were running 100 meters, so yeah! I want to play on that field.”
