Ned Benson To Re-Write “Black Widow”

Marvel Studios has reportedly hired Ned Benson (“The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby”) to rewrite the script for the “Black Widow” movie starring Scarlett Johansson.

Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland is directing the action movie from a script which Jac Schaeffer (“The Hustle”) penned the previous draft of.

The “Black Widow” spinoff is reportedly set before the events of the first “Avengers” movie and is slated to be Marvel’s second female-driven film following “Captain Marvel” which is tracking to open to more than $100 million next month.
