The restart of Blade, in which the half-vampire hunter will play, as we have known for a long time, 46-year-old Oscar and Golden Globe laureate Mahershal Ali (Green Book, Moonlight, True Detective), found screenwriter.
According to Deadline, the producers worked out the agenda in a double size and called for the script Stacy Osei-Kuffour, who was working on the series based on “Keepers” – the contract has already been signed.
It is noted that Osei-Kuffour will be the first black person to write a potential blockbuster based on Marvel comics. At the same time, it was previously reported with pride that the sequel to “Captain Marvel” will remove Nia DaCosta, thus becoming the first black female director of a potential Marvel blockbuster.
There is no data on director and reboot dates for “Blade” yet.
Blade made his comic book debut in 73. From 1998 to 2004, a trilogy was published, where the character was played by Wesley Snipes. Plus in the bins of the hero there is a game series, an anime series and an appearance in a dozen video games.
