Fred Hechinger has landed a role in Sony Pictures’ Kraven the Hunter, in which Aaron Taylor Johnson plays the title character. Reports believe Hechinger will portray Chameleon, Kraven’s brother, in the film, albeit this is unverified.
J.C. Chandor is producing the film, which is produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. The script was written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, as well as Richard Wenk.
Kraven is one of Sony Pictures’ Marvel universe’s most renowned and legendary antiheroes, having battled Venom and Black Panther among others, as well as being one of Spider-most Man’s well-known and fearsome foes. The movie will hit theaters on January 13, 2023.
Chameleon, on the other hand, is Kraven’s half-brother and is generally presented as a master of disguises, recognized for his ability to imitate almost anyone.
Sony is going on a strong streak, with Venom: Let There Be Carnage grossing more than $500 million globally and Spider-Man: No Way Home racking over $1.7 billion at the global box office. Morbius, starring Jared Leto, will be released in April, and Dakota Johnson has been cast as Madame Web by the studio.
Fred Hechinger is fresh off an amazing performance in HBO’s blockbuster show The White Lotus as Steve Zahn and Connie Britton’s kid. He is currently shooting Scott Cooper’s The Pale Blue Eye, featuring Christian Bale, and featured in the Hulu miniseries, Pam & Tommy. He’ll also be featured in Gabe Polsky’s forthcoming film Butchers Crossing, which stars Nicolas Cage and is based on John Williams’ 1960 novel of the same name. A3 Artists Agency, Brillstein, and attorney Ryan LeVine represent Hechinger.
