Getting her start writing episodes for such TV series as A Different World, South Central, and Sweet Justice, Prince-Bythewood made her debut as a film director in 2000 with the sports-themed romantic comedy Love & Basketball. Since then, she has directed the drama Beyond the Lights and Before the Fall, an adaptation of the Lauren Oliver young adult novel of the same name.

Based on a script by Thor: The Dark World scribe Chris Yost, the planned movie will follow Silver Sable and Black Cat, two female characters from Marvel‘s Spider-Man comics. Superherohype, the source of this story, shares the following information about the characters:
Created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz, Silver Sable made her comic book debut in 1985’s The Amazing Spider-Man #265. Hailing from the fictional European nation Symkaria, Sable is an expertly trained mercenary whose company, Silver Sable International, funds a team called the Wild Pack.
