SPIDER-MAN Spin-Off NIGHTWATCH Reportedly Moving Forward With OLDBOY Director Spike Lee At The Helm

SPIDER-MAN Spin-Off NIGHTWATCH Reportedly Moving Forward With OLDBOY Director Spike Lee At The Helm

Last year, a rumor did the rounds which claimed that Sony was planning to develop a movie based on relatively obscure Marvel Comics character Nightwatch, and now we have an update on the project's status.

You may recall we ran a story late last year on Sony Pictures' (potential) plans for a movie based on a character first introduced in the pages of Spider-Man, Nightwatch. At the time we heard that Now You See Me Screenwriter Ed Ricourt was working on a script, and that the studio hoping to get none other than Spike Lee on board to helm the picture.

That was back in September and we hadn't heard anything on it since - however, That Hashtag Show has now provided an update on the project's status.

According to their sources, Lee is now on board, but he'll actually be working off a script developed by Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker.

Just in case you're unfamiliar with Nightwatch, a.k.a. Doctor Kevin Trench, he was first introduced in Web of Spider-Man #97 in the '90s. Nightwatch's original costume was very similar to Spawn's which led to many dismissing him as a cheap rip-off, but he's actually a pretty cool character.

We'll have to take this as a rumor for now, but given the amount of scoops THS has been breaking lately, you can probably expect trade confirmation within the next couple of days.
