Prince-Bythewood, who directed and wrote The Secret Life of Bees, will reportedly enter production on the film later this year, for a now undisclosed release date-unlike Venom, which is now due out in October next year.

The script for the project comes from Chris Yost ('Thor: Ragnarok"), based on an earlier draft by "Westworld' co-creator Lisa Joy. Silver has served as both a friend and enemy to Peter Parker in the Spider-Man comics.

Silver Sable, created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz in 1985, is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals. The character had previously appeared on Spider-Man: The Animated Series, Spider-Man: The New Animated Series and The Spectacular Spider-Man. Black Cat, on the other hand, is a costumed cat burglar, also known as Felicia Hardy.

Earlier this year, news broke that Sony was developing another Spider-Man spin-off film with a Silver Sable and Black Cat centric film. Deciding to emulate her father, but assuming the identity of the Black Cat to do so, she mastered acrobatics and numerous fighting styles.

Production will kick off in fall on the film, which shares a non-MCU status with the planned Venom film that stars Tom Hardy. Sony has aptly titled the film, Silver and Black.

On the feature front, Prince-Bythewood has directed and written Beyond The Lights, Love & Basketball and The Secret Life of Bees, and she becomes the latest female filmmaker to be set to direct a superhero film, a trend that started with Patty Jenkins helming Wonder Woman, which Warner Bros/DC opens June 2.

Sony's upcoming Silver Sable and Black Cat film has found its director. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal will produce the movie.
