Spike Lee to Direct Sony’s ‘Nightwatch’ Superhero Flick Scripted by Cheo Hodari Coker




The Wrap is reporting today that filmmaker Spike Lee is eyeing up superhero flick Nightwatch, which he may potentially end up directing for Sony from a script written by Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker.

No details have been revealed on the plot of the film, but it’s still very early days.

The Nightwatch comics follow:

African-American scientist Dr. Kevin Trench, a man who witnessed a costumed man die battling some terrorists armed with invisibility-generating cloaking devices.

The kicker is that Trench unmasked the corpse to learn that it was an older version of himself. The character was first introduced in 1993’s “Web of Spider-Man No. 97,” and even has his own short lived, self-titled series.

Sony Executive Vice President Palak Patel is supervising the Nightwatch development along with the rest of the Spider-Man universe properties.

Lee is repped by ICM. Coker is repped by CAA.
