Sheet goes into unknown territory. It was widely reported on Monday that the upcoming Marvel Studios reboot found its new director in Yann Demange. Coupled with those reports, the idea was that the Burbank-based production house wanted to change the tone, making the production one of its darkest outings to date.
deadline Justin Kroll said in his report that while it won’t be the R-rated carnage that the Wesley Snipes movies ended in, the Kevin Feige-led outfit is looking for “a darker tone in this movie than other MCU projects have been.” . in the past.”
THR’s Borys Kit echoed the sentiment, adding that it would inevitably result in Mike Starrbury being hired and an entirely new script. Details are being kept under wraps, but sources say the new intention is for Blade to take on a dark and gritty tone, fall on the edgier side of Marvel fare, and perhaps even find commonalities with the fondly remembered Sheet movies made in the early 2000s by New Line,” Kit replied.
While Marvel Studios executives are reportedly not opposed to the idea of R-rated movies, Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 is the only film confirmed with the rating to date.
“It’s rated R and we’re currently working on a script, and Ryan is currently supervising a script,” Feige confirmed before adding, “It won’t [filming] this year. Ryan is a very busy, very successful actor. We have some things that we’ve already announced that we need to make now, but it’s exciting that it’s started. Again, a very different type of character in the MCU, and Ryan is a force of nature, which is great to see him bring that character to life.”
Sheet is scheduled for release on September 6, 2024.
