Sony Pictures is reportedly developing a feature project centered on the female Marvel characters Silver Sable and the Black Cat.
In the comics, Silver Sable is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals. Black Cat is an acrobatic cat burglar whose real name is Felicia Hardy, has a long and tangled romantic history with Spider-Man.
Chris Yost (“Thor: Ragnarok”) is writing a new draft of the script, taking over from “Westworld” co-creator Lisa Joy. The aim is to go out to directors soon and be in production by as early as this Fall.
Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are producing. The news comes as Sony has “Spider-Man: Homecoming” hitting cinemas in July and a “Venom” movie in the works for October next year. Like “Venom,” the Sable & Cat film isn’t expected to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
