While there’s been reports about “Venom” this week, rising filmmaker Gina Prince-Bythewood is tackling the other “Spider-Man” spin-off currently in the works at Sony – “Silver & Black”.
The female-led superhero movie will revolve around Silver Sable and Black Cat, two noted “Spider-Man” characters. Speaking with Vulture, the helmer has spoken about the responsibility that comes with the project which she’s currently doing script revisions for:
“The strange thing is, I knew I was the best person for this. Normally I get nervous regardless of what it is when I go into a meeting but with this, I saw the movie in my head as I was reading it, and it’s an exciting thing as a director when you know what you want to do with it. I was able to be so specific, so it was exciting in those meetings because everything I was talking about, they loved. We were feeding off each other.”
The director is hoping to start the casting process soon so that production can begin in the Fall:
“I go to bed thinking about it, I wake up thinking about it, and during the day, I have my notebook where I’m jotting down ideas and visuals and music. It’s so up my alley in terms of these two female characters and who they are and what they’re about. It’s the perfect way for me to dive into the Marvel universe, to focus on these two women who I really respect and can’t wait to bring to life.”
“Silver & Black” currently has no release date.
