Jared Leto has been cast as Morbius the Living Vampire for a self-titled solo spin-off film for Sony, according to Variety.
Director Daniel Espinosa, best known for his film Safe House, is reportedly in talks to helm the film, following a purported meeting with Leto that solidified the project for both parties. In comic books, Morbius the Living Vampire is Michael Morbius, a scientist and Spider-Man villain who needs to absorb plasma to live.
Leto has also reportedly been attached to produce and star in a solo film as the Joker for Warner Bros.
It's unclear whether Morbius would tie-in to Sony's other in-development Spider-Man spin-off films.
