'Blade': Bassam Tariq to Direct Reboot Movie for Marvel Studio

Deadline is reporting this week that a new director has been found for the upcoming Marvel Studios reboot of Blade. According to an exclusive update via the site, Bassam Tariq, best known for directing the Riz Ahmed film Mogul Mowgli, is in talks to direct the project with Mahershala Ali (Green Book) in the starring role as the daywalker.

The site notes that since her hiring, Marvel shortened its list of possible director choices and started another round meetings that started in March and went through June. Those that made the final cut met and delivered their final presentations over that time, and in the end it was Tariq’s vision that ultimately won all parties over.

Created as a supporting character by Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan, Blade first appeared in Tomb of Dracula No. 10 in 1973, becoming a cult favorite.
