Academy award winner and superstar performer Jared Leto is readying to begin another of his incredible transformations for upcoming superhero horror-thriller Morbius and the transformation is nigh.
Leto took to his official YouTube channel for his band Thirty Seconds to Mars to document the beginning of this transformation….and that means it’s goodbye to his famed beard.
Morbius will be directed by Daniel Espinosa (Life, Safe House) and will adapt the long-time cult classic Marvel comic book series to the big screen. In the film Leto will star as Dr. Michael Morbius, a biochemist who tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but who in the process inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.
Sony Pictures Marvel Universe is expanding quickly with the likes of the Spider-Man and Venom films and Morbius will make a very interesting addition to the growing universe. While the film is still only in pre-production it is rumoured that actress Adria Arjona will star as the film’s key love interest Martine Bancroft, and given the film’s subject matter and Leto’s passion for method acting we’re sure that Morbius will be a very interesting watch indeed.
Morbius will arrive in cinemas sometime in 2020.
