Black Panther Filming in Early 2017; Ryan Coogler Co-Writing
... in a recent interview with Feige for Cap’s third outing, Collider took a moment to get an update on how Black Panther is coming along. Feige was asked if they had locked in a finished script, and this is what he had to say:
“Very soon. We have a number of writers on it including Ryan Coogler, who is also directing, he’s working on the draft right now. Between now and the end of the summer there will be more casting announcements. We start filming at the very beginning of next year.”
From just a few sentences we’ve learnt quite a lot of new information. Firstly, Coogler is also working on a draft of the Black Panther script – something he’s already used to doing alongside his directing duties from his previous two directorial efforts, Fruitvale Station and Creed. We’ve also now learned than more casting announcements are to come by the end of the summer, and crucially that filming will begin at the start of 2017.
