Things are heating up with Marvel’s Moon Knight.

Just days after announcing that Oscar Isaac (Star Wars) was in talks to headline the Disney+ and Marvel series, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the series director has been found as well. Mohamed Diab will step behind the camera for the series.

Diab, an Egyptian filmmaker, rose to attention with his 2016 film Clash, which was set in 2013 Cairo amidst the clashes behind pro- and anti-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators. Diab had previously gotten attention for his debut film, Cari 678. 

Moon Knight follows Marc Spector who is given superhuman abilities from the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy) is set to showrun the series.

There’s currently no timeline on when we’ll see Moon Knight.
