A standalone film on Black Widow is getting closer to the production stages and as per reports, a working title for the film is ready. A report on Production Weekly said that the Scarlett Johansson starrer will be filmed under the title of Blue Bayou. The film will begin filming in June 2019 in the United Kingdom. Blue Bayou was the name of a song written by Roy Orbison. The song was also performed by Orbison himself, but a rendition by country singer Linda Ronstadt made it very popular, as per reports.
According to Comicbook.com, it is possible that the production will start at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire. The studio was used to film certain sections of Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Avengers: Age of Ultron. The Black Widow film will be directed by Cate Shortland and Robert Hardy will work as the director of photography. Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito, and Victoria Alonso are in charge of production, along with Brad Winderbaum. The latter was previously in charge of production of Ant-Man and Thor: Ragnarok.
The production summary of Black Widow mentions that Natasha Romanov is handed over to the KGB which then trains her into an operative. “When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kill her as the action movies to present-day New York, where she is a freelance operative. The standalone film will find Romanoff living in the United States 15 years after the fall of the Soviet Union,” read the summary as reported by Production Weeklt.
