Blade with Mahershala Ali to start rolling in 2022

Originally slated to start production this September, Blade is now targeted to start rolling in July 2022. 

Marvel Studios may have found a director for Blade. Best known for directing Mogul Mowgli, Bassam Tariq is in final talks to helm the new adaptation of the Daywalker set to be played by Mahershala Ali.

Stacy Osei-Kuffour, who best known as the story editor and writer on HBO’s award winning limited series Watchmen, will write the script.

John Wick‘s David Leitch expressed his interest in helming the new Blade earlier but dropped down later.
