Production history

In March 2017, it was reported that Sony were planning a film based around the characters Silver Sable and Black Cat, with Chris Yost penning the script, and Matthew Tolmach and Amy Pascal producing.[3] On May 25, Gina Prince-Bythewood was attached to direct the film, now titled Silver & Black.[4] By August 2017, Prince-Bythewood was reported to be revising the script herself. A release date of February 8, 2019 was announced.[2] In February 2018, Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet were announced to be writing the latest draft of the script.[5] On June 1, 2018 Sony removed Silver & Black from its February release with them looking to release the film at a later date.[6] In August, however, the film was split into two separate movies, focusing on the individual characters, with Gina remaining a producer on both.[1]
