Artisan Entertainment announced a deal with Marvel Entertainment in May 2000 to co-produce, finance, and distribute several films based on Marvel Comics characters, including Morbius, the Living Vampire. After announcing plans in May 2017 for a new shared universe named “Sony’s Marvel Universe”, consisting of films inspired by Spider-Man characters beginning with Venom (2018), Sony was revealed to be developing one based on Morbius.
Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless had written a script by November 2017. In June 2018, Jared Leto and Daniel Espinosa officially joined the project. At the end of the year, further casting was finalized, ahead of a production start in February 2019 in London. Filming was confirmed to have been completed by June 2019.
Directors who were initially approached for the film included Antoine Fuqua and F. Gary Gray and Daniel Espinosa. In May, while on tour in Germany with his band Thirty Seconds to Mars, Leto met with Daniel Espinosa to talk about the film, and the pair were both confirmed for the project at the end of June. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Lucas Foster were set to produce.
By the end of September, Sony was intending for production on the film to take place in Atlanta, Georgia—where Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and Venom were previously produced—but had still not set a release date for the film. Tolmach said they were now planning to begin filming in early 2019, with the intention that Morbius would be the second film released as part of Sony’s shared universe after Venom. He added that Leto was bringing the same “intensity” to the film that he had playing the Joker in Suicide Squad (2016).
By November, box office analysts believed that Venom had been successful enough for Sony to move ahead with other films like Morbius, and at the end of that month the studio dated an untitled Marvel film that was believed to be Morbius for a July 10, 2020 release. Adria Arjona entered negotiations to portray the film’s female lead, Martine Bancroft, in December; her involvement was confirmed a month later when Sony pushed the release date to July 31. English actor Matt Smith also joined the cast.
Oliver Wood served as cinematographer for the film. With the start of filming, Jared Harris and Tyrese Gibson joined the cast as Morbius’s mentor and an FBI agent hunting Morbius, respectively. Smith was revealed to be portraying the villainous Loxias Crown. In March, filming took place in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, portraying New York City. A month later, Gibson revealed that he was portraying Simon Stroud, and that Al Madrigal had been cast as his partner, Alberto Rodriguez.
