Sony Sets Dates for 'Spider-Man' Spinoff 'Silver & Black' and 'Sicario 2'
Sony's growing Spider-Man shared universe has a date for its spinoff Silver & Black.
The film will open Feb. 8, 2019. Gina Prince-Bythewood directs the female-centered adaptation about Marvel characters Silver Sable and Black Cat. Silver & Black comes out four months after the previously announced October 2018 date for Tom Hardy's Venom.
The studio has also pulled Bad Boys sequel Bad Boys for Life from the schedule (it was previously set for Nov. 9, 2018).
Columbia Pictures also confirmed that Anne Hathaway will star in Barbie (news she was in talks for the role broke last month) and said it has moved the film back a few weeks to Aug. 8, 2018 (it was previously set for June 29, 2018). Alethea Jones directs the film.
In addition, Columbia Pictures and Black Label Media's Sicario 2: Soldado, the follow-up to Denis Villeneuve's 2015 film, will open June 29, 2018. Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin return for the film, directed by Stefano Sollima.
Other changes include the move of Breaking Bad director Michelle MacLaren's feature-film debut, The Nightingale, to Jan. 25, 2019, from its previous date of Aug. 10, 2018. Columbia's Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly comedy Holmes and Watson has moved to Nov. 9, 2018, from Aug. 3, 2018. TriStar Pictures will also release director Ben Taylor's The Rosie Project on May 10, 2019.
