Silk Producer is working on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon series for Sony

A new look at Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is on the way. Earlier this week, reports revealed that Lucifer and The expanse Writer-producer Jason Ning is working on a television adaptation of the novel, as well as the four other novels in Wang DuLu’s Crane Iron Pentalogy. This series will be developed as part of Ning’s new overall deal with Sony Pictures Television, which includes the upcoming Marvel-inspired television series. Silk: Spider Society. That live-action series will air on Prime Video and EPIX+.

The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon books were previously adapted into an Oscar-winning film directed by Ang Lee, which premiered in 2000. There were earlier plans to adapt the series into a television show on Netflix, but that never materialized.

Silk: Spider Society would follow fan-favorite Marvel Comics character Cindy Moon, who is described as “a Korean-American woman bitten by the same spider that bit Peter Parker, as she escapes prison and searches for her missing family on her way to the superhero to be known as Silk.”

“We’re developing all that stuff with great care and it’s off to a really exciting start Silk,” producer Phil Lord teased in a recent interview. “It’s coming. There will be news soon.”

The living Dead‘s Angela Kang will serve as showrunner. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Lord and Chris Miller will serve as producers, as part of their overall deal to develop Spider-ManSony themed TV shows.

“We are so grateful to everyone at Sony Pictures Television for choosing to partner with us and expand our long-standing relationship with the studio,” Lord and Miller said in a statement when that deal was first announced. “Together, we strive to create groundbreaking work of the highest quality and integrity, and put that work near your eyeballs and earholes wherever you are.”
