New reports suggesting Sony Pictures is looking to expand their Spider-verse with another Spider-Man related project. According to Variety, the studio is currently developing a live-action series based on Silk/Cindy Moon, a Korean-American girl who was bitten by the same spider as Peter Parker.
The series based on the character created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos will allegedly be penned by Lauren Moon. Phil Lord and Chris Miller will serve as the show’s executive producers alongside Amy Pascal. The series has to find a home, however, Amazon is said to be the frontrunners in buying the distribution rights for the project. Lauren Moon is also a Korean-American like Cindy Moon in the comic book series.
It was first reported that Sony was developing a live-action movie based on Silk. But it looks like the company changing its direction and trying to take a safer path. Silk also slated to appear in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 and a Spider-Verse spinoff starring all-female Spider characters. Tiffany Espensen played Moon in the film Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War.
Sony is also developing a project based on Kraven and Spider-Woman. Morbius and Venom already have release dates. Phil Lord and Chris Miller told Deadline last year they were developing a handful of live-action shows using Sony’s Marvel characters, of which there are like 900 characters.
