Weaving in my opinion is one of Hollywoods strongest character actors, he has an amazing presence on screen as well as a wonderful ability to be dark and foreboding when he needs, so from what I have read of Red Skull it could work. Both his roles as Mr Smith and V brought forth a beautiful evil that was almost poetic, but would this transfer well too the role of the dark Nazi with a passion for destroying all that is Peace Hope and the American way?
The report says it’s not a locked deal yet, but it’s close and we’d imagine Johnson would be eager to work with Weaving again. After all, the actor was one of the best things about The Wolfman.
