Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff universe film Silver and Black has reportedly been delayed.
After recent reports from The Hashtag Show suggested production on the movie has been delayed indefinitely, director Gina Prince-Bythewood addressed the news on Twitter, offering an update on the film, which could indicate some delay has occurred.
“Still working on the script,” Prince-Bythewood tweeted. “It’s all about the script.”
Filming was originally reportedly set to begin next month, however no casting announcements have been made so far. The film reportedly now has no new start date as well. Reports pegged a February 8, 2019 release date for Silver and Black last year. with Prince-Bythewood rewriting the screenplay penned by Thor: Ragnarok writer Chris Yost.
The film focuses on Silver Sable (aka Silver Sablinova), the leader of a group of mercenaries who hunt down criminals, and Black Cat (aka Felicia Hardy), a burglar who’s skilled in martial arts and gymnastics.
Last year, producer Amy Pascal confirmed Silver and Black will exist separately from the MCU, with Prince-Bythewood describing the project as a buddy film.
