Today, The Hollywood Reporter announced that HBO’s Watchmen writer Stacy Osei-Kuffour has been tapped to write Blade for Marvel Studio. The studio has been hard at work since late last year to find a screenwriter for the project. The project will star Mahershala Ali as the daywalker. The studio still looks to hire a director for the movie. Fans have suggested African-American directors like Jordan Peele (Get Out), Rick Famuyiwa (The Mandalorian), or Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer) for the project. Kevin Feige will produce for the studio.
Blade has no set release date
