Serkis is primarily known as an actor, particularly for his motion-capture roles, having appeared as Gollum in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy and providing the mo-cap for Jackson’s King Kong remake as well. Serkis also won acclaim for his performances in the Planet of the Apes prequel trilogy.

During Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, Serkis worked as a second unit director for the film and went on to direct his first feature film, Breathe, before helming Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, an updated take on The Jungle Book. If he lands the job, Venom 2 will be Serkis’ highest-profile directing job to date.
