Sony Pictures has reportedly offered the role of Kraven The Hunter to none other than Keanu Reeves (John Wick).
According to The Illuminerdi, “Sony has given an official offer to Hollywood megastar Keanu Reeves to star as Kraven the Hunter in his own Sony solo film. The project is being referred to simply as Kraven,” and not “Kraven the Hunter.” The website further described the tone of the film to be “a mashup of Man on Fire and Logan.”
For those unfamiliar with the character, Kraven is the “world’s greatest hunter” who gained his powers by drinking rare and exotic jungle elixirs given to him by his voodoo priestess lover, Calypso. These elixirs gave him super strength and speed of a savage beast. He received a new purpose in life after he was given a proposal to hunt down the one and only Spider-Man.
Director J.C. Chandor (Netflix’s Triple Frontier) is currently attached to the project.
Before we get to Kraven, Sony is set to further expand on their “Spider-Man” universe with the release Morbius and Venom: Let There Be Carnage in 2022.
