Silver Sable & Black Cat Director: ‘I Knew I Was The Best Person For This’

20 June 2017 5:25 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is usually one steady-ass rock. The films are generally pretty darn good, and their timeline — while occasionally convoluted — is pretty easy to follow. We know where each film stands in relation to another, and understand the space they occupy in the same universe. And then Sony got into the mix, and things got a little bit interesting. Spider-Man joined the McU, and off to the side, the studio announced the development of a Venom film and a Silver Sable and Black Cat film titled Silver & Black.

At first, it seemed distinctly clear (albeit a bit annoying) that the Venom universe would be off in its own little playing field. However, with the recent statement from Amy Pascal, the head at Sony Pictures, it seems like it may not be as clear cut as that, with the VenomVerse somehow also existing in the McU off to the side.

Regardless of any confusion, it sounds like Venom and Silver & Black are happening. While I’m still not sure if those two have the recognizability to lead their own film, the director the the upcoming flick, Gina Prince-Blythewood (Love and Basketball, The Secret Life of Bees), seems incredibly passionate about it, and it’s admittedly made me a bit more interested in seeing what it can offer.

Speaking with Vulture, Prince-Blythewood said:

“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.”

In fact, she was so passionate that Silver & Black diverted her attention from another project, which she had originally planned on taking before jumping into the comic book flick. She is currently in the midst of revisions and hopes to cast very soon so that they can make a fall production date.

She continued:

“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.”

While I may not be thrilled by the characters they hope to bring to the forefront, I am interested to see what Prince-Blythewood’s passion brings to the project. Perhaps we’ll see something truly unique in that movie that we didn’t see coming.

Silver Sable & Black Cat Film Gets A Director, Title, And Possible Synopsis

29 May 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Much to everyone's horror, Sony continues to make headway with their "Spider-Man Universe," that seemingly won't involve Spider-Man at all, instead focusing on characters such as Venom, Silver Sable, and Black Cat, while Marvel Studios shares custody of good ole' web-head within the completely separate Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Venom film came together fast, with Sony already securing Tom Hardy to play Eddie Brock/Venom, Ruben Fleischer to direct, and a release date of October 5, 2018. Now we're beginning to receive important details, at an alarming rate, concerning another "Spider-Man spinoff," focusing on Silver Sable and Black Cat. It was already announced that Chris Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) is penning the most recent draft, following Lisa Joy's (HBO's Westworld) work on the script, but now we have a title, director, and possible synopsis for the film. 

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Gina Prince-Bythewood will be directing the film now titled Silver & Black. »

Spider-Man spin off Silver Sable/Black Cat lands director

25 May 2017 10:26 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew May 26, 2017

The second Spider-Man spin-off movie will start shooting this year, with Gina Prince-Bythewood directing...

Last week, we got the news that Ruben Fleischer is set to direct Sony’s first Spider-Man spin-off movie, Venom. Furthermore, that Tom Hardy was taking on the title role. That film is set to shoot shortly, to meet an October 2018 release date.

Sony doesn’t seem to be wasting much time setting the next spin-off up either. Silver And Black is now the official title of the Silver Sable and Black Cat spin-off movie. Whilst casting for the two lead roles has yet to be announced, we do know who’s landed the director’s chair.

The job has gone to Gina Prince-Bythewood, the helmer of Love And Basketball and Beyond The Lights. Prince Bythewood is also directing the pilot for the TV series Cloak & Dagger, another project based on Marvel comics. »

Spider-Man Spin-Off Silver and Black Gets a Director and Release Date

25 May 2017 10:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony is doubling down on it's own version of the Marvel universe with the second installment to be titled Silver and Black, based on the Silver Sable and Black Cat comics. It will arrive after the first Smu movie Venom. Today, Sony has announced that they've secured a director for this female led superhero movie.

Gina Prince-Bythewood is officially on board to direct Silver and Black. She is best known for writing and directing The Secret Life of Bees. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal will produce the movie. It will hit theaters in October 2018. Oddly enough, this is the same frame which Venom is scheduled to launch. Perhaps The Hollywood Reporter has the date wrong and they meant to say 2019?

Silver and Black is chugging along fast, and will begin shooting this fall. The movie has been in the planning stages for quite some time, going all the way back »

'Shots Fired' Premiere: Cast, Producers Gather for Intimate Screening

17 March 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Fox's new show Shots Fired made its world premiere at Sundance in January, but, ahead of its March 22 debut, the series had an intimate screening for family and friends and select guests on Thursday night at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.

"Sundance was extra special because [show creator] Gina [Prince-Bythewood] and I premiered Love and Basketball 17 years ago," the show's female lead, Sanaa Lathan, told The Hollywood Reporter. "It was coming full circle. Who would have thought Shots Fired would be there? It's so random for a TV show to be at Sundance. That gave it a »

Marvel’s Cloak And Dagger TV Series May Have Cast Its Leads

24 January 2017 11:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last night we reported that Marvel’s upcoming Cloak and Dagger TV show, which will air on Freeform, had found a director for its pilot episode in the form of Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love and Basketball, Beyond the Lights). Now, a new rumor suggests that the two leads have also been cast. According to the McU Exchange, Noah Gray-Cabey will play Tyrone Johnson (Cloak), while Debby Ryan has signed on to bring Tandy Bowen (Dagger) to life on the small screen.

While neither of these actors are what you’d call household names, they’ve both starred in some fairly popular TV shows in the past. Gray-Cabey is probably best know for playing Micah in the original Heroes when he was a kid (he also reprised the role for Heroes Reborn), but he’s since appeared in the likes of CSI and Code Black. Ryan, meanwhile, played Aubrey on Girl Meets World, »

‘Shots Fired’: New Fox Drama Brings Feature Film Directors to the Black Lives Matter Movement

12 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Richard Dreyfuss would like you to know that Fox’s upcoming event series, “Shots Fired,” is “probably the most current show you’ll ever see.” According to the “Jaws” star, “When we were shooting it was happening and when we left it happened there… it’s exactly current with the world.”

And that’s by design. At the TCA Winter Press Tour, the producers and stars of Fox’s 10-episode drama explained that the show came about right after the chaos that rocked Ferguson, Missouri in the summer of 2014.
