Exhibitor Relations is reporting that Sony has pulled Silver & Black from their release schedule, delaying the film indefinitely. The Spider-Man spin-off was originally slated to be released in theaters on February 8th, 2019, but had yet to begin production. Silver & Black was set to be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love and Basketball), who also wrote the first draft of the script.

There’s no word on if production on the film will continue, but it would appear that Sony is waiting to see how well Venom does at the box office before continuing its spin-off efforts.

Men in Black Spinoff in the Works

Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures is developing a Men in Black spinoff based on a script by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum (Iron Man, Transformers: The Last Knight). The article states that the story of the new film will focus more on the Men in Black organization as a whole, on its global scale, rather than just a single branch in New York.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not be reprising their starring roles, though cameos are not off the table. The new film will instead focus on a new team of MIB, and is being fast-tracked for a May 2019 release.
