Yesterday, Deadline reported that Oscar Isaac was in talks to play the lead in the upcoming Moon Knight series on Disney+. Today, the outlet is reporting that they “hear” that the series has a director. That person is the Egyptian director Mohamed Diab. He is most well-know for his 2007 film El Gezira (the Island) about a ruthless drug lord on an island in Upper Egypt, and 2016’s Eshtebak (Clash), about the fall of the Egyptian revolution. Deadline describes Diab’s work as “propulsive and prescient filmmaking”.
If confirmed, Diab joins head writer Jeremy Slater on the Moon Knight series’ creative team. No release date for the Moon Knight series has been announced.
