‘West Side Story’ star Ariana DeBose set for ‘Kraven the Hunter’

West Side Story star Ariana DeBose has been added to the cast lineup for the Sony/Marvel movie ‘Kraven The Hunter.’ Debose, who, according to rumours, will play the role of Calypso joins Aaron Taylor-Johnson who plays the titular character. Calypso is a voodoo priestess who utilizes magic potions, and besides being an adversary of Spider-Man, she is also the occasional partner and lover of Kraven. ‘Triple Frontier’ helmer J.C. Chandor will direct. Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Richard Wenk will write the script. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing. With ties to Spider-Man, Kraven was introduced in 1964 as a Spider-Man villain. He was born Sergei Kravinoff, he considers himself to be the world’s greatest hunter, a moniker he earns at first through his prowess at tracking and killing big game, often with his bare hands. His drive to maintain his grip on his title leads him to ingest a serum that gives him super-strength and stamina and slows down his ageing considerably. He’s known for wearing a jacket made from a lion’s head and mane. DeBose will next appear in Matthew Vaughn’s action film ‘Argylle’ from Apple, starring opposite Henry Cavill, Bryan Cranston, Samuel L. Jackson and Dua Lipa.
