Director Bassam Tariq has dropped out of Marvel’s Blade reboot barely a month before production was set to begin with Mahershala Ali in the lead role.
Tariq will remain on the project as executive producer, commenting:
“It’s been an honor working with the wonderful folks at Marvel. We were able to put together a killer cast and crew. Eager to see where the next director takes the film.”
Blade is set for release on November 3, 2023, although that could now change.
Leech is an atmospheric gothic science fiction debut by Hiron Ennes, for fans of Jeff VanderMeer, Tamsyn Muir, and Silvia Moreno-Garcia.
