While Sony Executive Vice President Palak Patel will be supervising the film's development, the plot details and casting info are not known yet.

Nightwatch will focus on Doctor Kevin Trench, who was first introduced in Web of Spider-Man #97.

Trench started his vigilante adventure after stumbling across a dead man wearing a suit. When he took off the costume and unmasked the corpse, he learned that it was actually an older version of himself.

Sony is currently also developing a movie about another Spider-Man villain, Eddie Brock aka Venom.

Venom has Tom Hardy as the protagonist with Michelle Williams playing Ann Weying, Eddie Brock's ex-wife.
