After the project was first announced, Marvel hired filmmaker Bassam Tariq to direct Ali. Stacy Osei-Kuffour (Guardians) was hired to write a script for the project. Tariq then left the project in October due to production schedule conflicts, leaving the creative team to start from scratch.
“Sheetit’s been a nice ride,” Tariq wrote after leaving the project. “Right now, I am also filled with love and gratitude to the people at Marvel [as] the incredible crew and cast we’ve gathered. I can’t wait to see how the next director builds on the foundation we’ve laid.”
What is the Sheet reboot about?
Mahershala Ali’s fan-favorite half-vampire appeared in the post-credits scene Eternals only in voice, teasing a crossover with Kit Harington’s Dane Whitman/Black Knight.
“[Blade] used to be [part of the scene] for reasons that would hopefully become clear as you see more things, but [Mahershal Ali] was not there on the day,” foreveras producer Nate Moore told us earlier. “And we talked about two versions of that, one where we would cut it and one where we wouldn’t. ‘How lyrical do you want it to be?’ And again, it was more just for fun, to tease it a little bit, to hear the voice and not see the man, not similar to vampirism to some extent and we think that’s interesting to play with. we sort of knew that was on the table.
Sheet is scheduled for release on September 6, 2024.
