As principal photography on Sony's Morbius continues in the United Kingdom, actor Tyrese Gibson has confirmed he has a role in the horror-tinged antihero film.
In a behind-the-scenes video shared on Gibson's Instagram, the actor is seen sitting in a makeup chair as he listens to a sermon to remedy the dark, supernatural subject matter of the upcoming film.
Gibson was in talks for a role in the film last month, with reports that he would be playing an FBI agent tasked with hunting down Michael Morbius after the title character's transformation into a "living vampire." Based on Gibson's post, the Fast & Furious actor not only has signed on but will be named Agent Stroud.
Principal photography on Morbius is expected to continue until next month after beginning this past February.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Life) from a script written by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Lost in Space), Sony's Morbius stars Jared Leto as the titular character, Matt Smith as Loxias Crown, Adria Arjona as Martine Bancroft, Tyrese Gibson as Agent Stroud and Jared Harris in an undisclosed role. The film will hit theaters July 31, 2020.
