Jared Leto Shares First Photo of Himself on The Set of MORBIUS THE LIVING VAMPIRE
Director Daniel Espinosa (Life, Safe House) has started production on the Sony Pictures adaptation of Marvel’s Morbius The Living Vampire, and today Jared Leto has shared a first photo of himself from the set of the film.
It doesn’t show much, just his eyes and those eyes look tired a dreary. Leto is taking on the role of Morbius, a.k.a. Dr. Michael Morbius in the film. He’s "a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and attempted to cure himself to disastrous results. Instead of being cured, he became afflicted with a condition that was a form of vampirism — the thirst for blood, along with fangs and super strength — and fought Spider-Man. Over time, however, he became a slightly heroic figure in his own right and even headlined his own comic book titles."
Jared Harris (Mad Men, The Crown, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, The Terror) recently joined the cast along with Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim Uprising), who will play Martine Bancroft, who was engaged to Morbius before he accidentally turns himself into a vampire. She ends up becoming a potential victim as Morbius learns to cope with his insatiable bloodlust.
The script for the film is being written by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Lost in Space) and it will be released in theaters in the summer of 2020. I hope this ends up being a good movie! I’m a fan of this character.
