Lovecraft Country’s Director Yann Demange to Helm the MCU Blade Film

Marvel Studios‘ upcoming Blade film was in the headlines not too long ago as director Bassam Tariq stepped away from the film last September. This also brought to the surface some of the frustrations that the film’s star Mahershala Ali reportedly had with the film’s production and script. This eventually led to a halt in production as a hunt for another director began which led to the delay of some of the upcoming MCU films. Fans will be happy to hear that production is set to begin again as French filmmaker Yann Demange has been brought in to helm the film as well as the studio bringing in Emmy-nominated screenwriter Michael Starrbury to write the script.

The film has found itself in a bit of a developmental hell which is somewhat odd for the MCU which usually finds its projects buttoned down pretty tight. Tariq stepped away due to ‘continued shifts in our production schedule.” As Marvel revealed, the split was an amicable one that would keep Tariq on board as executive producer. These shifts came after the previous changes that saw Stacy Osei-Kuffour step away as writer and be replaced by Beau DeMayo.

Bringing Demange on board could have something to do with reports stating that the studio is looking to bring a dark tone to the film which would fall in line with what we say in the Wesley Snipes-led Blade films. With Demange’s work on HBO‘s Lovecraft Country, he makes a great fit and has shown his talent with the series which was criminally canceled by the streamer after just one season.
