This Sept. 27, 2018 photo shows Michelle Williams, a cast member in the film "Venom," posing for a portrait at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles. In the year after the downfall of Harvey Weinstein and the rise of #MeToo awareness, women in Hollywood are still processing and evaluating what, if anything, has fundamentally changed in their business. Williams was shooting the film “Venom” last October, amid the early stages of that cultural earthquake. Not only did she notice that the set was a changed place _ professional, with no insinuation or “slightly inappropriate touching,” but she also felt emboldened to strike or add lines to make her character more empowered and to ensure the film felt like one of the #MeToo era.

A source confirmed the news about Williams and Kail to US magazine People, who added that Matilda played matchmaker to the couple.

The couple were recently photographed together in London, where Williams is filming Venom 2.

It comes eight months after it was reported that the Dawson's Creek actress had split from her indie musician husband Phil Elverum, only months after they married in a secret ceremony.

Kail is close friends with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and won a Tony Award for directing the hit musical.

He also directed Miranda's previous work In The Heights on Broadway.

A representative for Williams has been contacted for comment.
