Sony’s Silver Sable and Black Cat ‘Spider-Man’ universe movie will be directed by ‘The Secret Life of Bees’ screenwriter-director Gina Prince-Bythewood.
Prince-Bythewood takes the role having had a prominent and critically successful career as both a screenwriter and director working on the likes of ‘Love and Basketball’ (2000) and ‘Beyond the Lights’ (2014).
Shooting will commence on the film titled ‘Silver and Black’ this autumn, working from a script that’s been touched up by the co-creator of HBO’s ‘Westworld’, Lisa Joy, and the screenwriter of upcoming Marvel title ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, Chris Yost.
The Black Cat character has appeared previously in Sony’s Spider-Man universe, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as played by Felicity Jones, but was not explicitly referred to as the character, while Silver Sable has yet to be involved in any live-action movie to this date.
It is not yet known when this film will be released.
