Blade: Delroy Lindo And Aaron Pierre Out But Mia Goth Still Attached

Some casting news for the eternally delayed Blade movie as Delroy Lindo and Aaron Pierre are out, but Mia Goth is still attached.

Some casting news for the eternally delayed Blade movie as Delroy Lindo and Aaron Pierre are out, but Mia Goth is still attached. The information comes from an article by THR going through all the delays this movie has suffered. Announced back in 2019 and with lead star Mahershala Ali, a series of delays has hampered production on the film. First of all the script wasn’t deemed good enough and the writers and director were changed. Then when new writers were brought on board we ended up with writers and actors strikes. Oh, and there was a global pandemic also.

Ultimately the script is once again in new hands with Eric Pearson charged with getting it over the line. There is still no director attached, as it was announced Yann Demange had left the project just recently. Now we find out both Delroy Lino and Aaron Pierre are no longer attached to the project. The only cast still remaining are Mia Goth, who was cast to play villain Lillith and lead star Ali.

I mean, that’s if Ali doesn’t decide to walk himself at some point. It does seem his attorney is not to happy with how long this has taken. As per THR;

‘Ali’s attorney, Shelby Weiser, told THR in a recent interview: “That deal was in 2019, and they still haven’t shot it, which is pretty much the craziest thing in my professional experience.”’

‘On top of last year’s strikes, Blade was a victim of pandemic delays and Disney’s full-steam-ahead pivot to streaming, which forced Marvel to overproduce and overdevelop its slate.’ “There wasn’t enough attention paid to it,” says one insider. “It really was a casualty of the ‘too much’ era.”’

The movie, which was originally set in the 1920’s we now know is set in modern day instead. Though, until cameras roll on this one, I’d say all bets are off.
