Chris Yost, who worked on Thor: Ragnarok, has been tapped by Sony to write the script for an feature project centered around female characters Silver Sable and the Black Cat.
Yost will build on a previous script penned by Lisa Joy.
Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are producing the project, and the studio is hoping to being shopping it out to potential directors soon. Currently, Sony is already deep in development on the villain spinoff Venom, which will arrive in theaters on October 5, 2018.
These spinoffs are said not offshoots from the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, but rather projects spun from the overall franchise and based on Sony's Spider-Man universe.
Aside from working on Thor: Ragnarok, Chris Yost is also known for his work on the animated series Wolverine and the X-Men. He also helped write the 2006 comic book storyline Innocence Lost with Craig Kyle, which delved into the past of Laura Kinney, the mutant known as X-23. In that story, fans learned of the character's brutal life raised in a lab where she was trained to be an assassin.
