Blade: finally a glimmer of hope after total chaos?

More in trouble than ever, the reboot of Blade by Marvel Studios will perhaps get back on track with this good news that has just fallen.

Until now, the reboot of Blade was very badly started but Marvel Studios may finally have a solution.

A new director and screenwriter for Blade

One month from the start of filming on Blade, the film lost its director who could no longer perform this role due to scheduling problems.

Due to ongoing changes in our production schedule, Bassam is no longer directing but will remain attached to the film as executive producer. We appreciate Bassam’s talent and all the work he’s done to bring Blade to where it is.

Marvel Studios had therefore made the decision to suspend production until further notice. But this should be able to resume in the coming weeks because according to information from the very serious Deadlinethe French Yann Demange signed to direct the film.

He stood out for the English series Top Boy and Dead Set. He also boxed an episode of the HBO show Lovecraft Country and should also make a series Scanners adapted from David Cronenberg’s work for the channel. Michael Starrbury will write the screenplay for Blade. An author who is behind one of the episodes of In their gaze.

These recruits should finally allow Marvel to get the project out of the mess it is in. A credible source had indeed reported many problems, before the hour, such as a script that did not hold up with disappointing action scenes, a producer who was not sufficiently focused and an actor who suffered the consequences of all this. . If everything goes well, Blade will be released on September 6, 2024.
