Several days ago, we at Knight Edge Media had gotten word that a Black Canary project was in early development for DC Comics. Now our friends over at Cinelinx revealed today that Lovecraft Country showrunner Misha Green will re-team with star Jurnee Smollett on the film. She has been hired to pen the script for the studio.
Green recently also was tapped to write & direct the upcoming Tomb Raider sequel. The film is expected to be tied into 2020’s Birds of Prey but will debut on HBO Max alongside Batgirl and Blue Beetle.
Black Canary has no set release date
Guess the Canary is out of the cage! 🤪 So excited to finally embark on this adventure with my creative soul sis @MishaGreen. 🖤💛 #blackcanary #dinahlance #lettttssssssgoooooo ahhhhhhhhh!!!!! https://t.co/GocuNdEn6E
