The Secret Life of Bees director Gina Prince-Bythewood will direct Silver & Black for Sony, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Silver & Black is the name given to the previously announced film starring Black Cat and Silver Sable, two supporting characters from Spider-Man comic books.
According to Deadline, she will also rewrite the script originally drafted by Christopher Yost.
Prince Bythewood recently directed Marvel's Cloak & Dagger pilot for Freeform. THR asserts that Silver & Black, like Sony's Venom, will not be connected to Spider-Man: Homecoming or the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
No release date for Silver & Black has been announced.
