Captain Marvel and Kingkiller Chronicle Writers Pen Marvel Movie Script

More female superheroes, please.


It's been nearly a year since it was first reported that Sony Pictures was developing a movie about Spider-Man universe villains Silver Sable and Black Cat. Now the studio might have finally a script, thanks to the writer of the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film Captain Marvel and a scribe who counts the forthcoming Chaos Walking and Barbie movies, as well as the Kingkiller Chronicle, among their credits.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lindsey Beer (Barbie) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel) have collaborated on the latest script for the Silver & Back film. Gina Prince-Bythewood, who is set to direct the movie, is now doing a polish on their draft before turning it into Sony.

However, Beer and Robertson-Dworet aren't the first to take a stab at the project. Prince-Bythewood previously wrote a script for the movie, as did Lisa Joy (Westworld) and Chris Yost (Thor: Ragnarok).

Silver & Black, like the upcoming Venom film starring Tom Hardy, will not exist in the MCU alongside Spider-Man (Tom Holland). Though a cast has yet to be announced and production is nowhere near starting, Silver & Black was previously announced to have a February 8, 2019 release date. The odds of it actually meeting that release date at this point, though, seem slim. Venom, however, will be in theaters on October 5.
