Sony's second Spider-Man spinoff Silver and Black is set to release Feb 8, 2019, so it's only fitting that the film is continuing to get new screenwriters. Lindsey Beer, who has worked on Chaos Walking, is taking a pass at the film. She's also been part of writer's rooms on Hasbro's Transformers projects, Godzilla vs. Kong, and Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek. Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who has worked on Captain Marvel and Tomb Raider, is also rewriting the film.

The Secret Life of Bees's Gina Prince-Bythewood is directing the film and has also written a draft. Both Thor: Ragnarok's Chris Yost and Lisa Joy, co-creator of HBO's Westworld, worked on earlier drafts.

While Sony has been tight-lipped about the film's plot, rumors have been surfacing. The film, centering on Silver Sable and Black Cat, will supposedly follow the former as she tries to capture the latter. Silver Sable is a bounty hunter working for the government and is tasked to track down Black Cat, a high-end burglar.

No casting announcements have been made.
