Sony's SPIDER-MAN Spinoff SILVER AND BLACK Production Reportedly Delayed

Sony's SPIDER-MAN Spinoff SILVER AND BLACK Production Reportedly Delayed

This probably shouldn't come as a surprise since the film has yet to set a cast, but a new report has seemingly learned that Sony's Spider-Man spinoff Silver and Black has been temporarily delayed.

That Hashtag Show is reporting that production on Sony's Silver and Black has been delayed indefinitely, which probably shouldn't come as a huge surprise considering the Spider-Man spinoff had yet to set a cast and also very recently enlisted a pair of new writers.

A new start date hasn't been set just yet, but the original plan was to begin rolling cameras at the beginning of March in Atlanta where the studio shot both Spider-Man: Homecoming and recently wrapped the upcoming Venom.

Lindsey Beer (Chaos Walking) and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider) were recently hired to pen a new script for Silver and Black, so this delay was almost inevitable. Gina Prince-Bythewood, who remains onboard as director, penned the previous draft. Chris Yost (Thor: Ragnarok) and Lisa Joy (Westworld) have also contributed to the film's screenplay.

Also, THS notes that while the film remains a priority for the studio, there are rumors swirling that Sony may be considering putting their film and TV studio up for sale relatively soon, which could be forcing them to reprioritize their upcoming productions.

Silver and Black is still scheduled to hit theaters on February 8, 2019, so expect the studio to set a new production start date sooner rather than later.
