Marvel's Blade starring Mahershala Ali is set to begin filming very soon.

According to the Film & Television Industry Alliance's,  the film is set to begin production on July 4. According to the listing, Blade will shoot in Atlanta, GA, as well as New Orleans, LA. Outside of the date and location, the production listing also has a brief synopsis for the Blade reboot.

The role of the day-walking vampire will be played by Mahershala Ali, who assumes the role from legendary actor Wesley Snipes. Delroy Lindo and Aaron Pierre are also slated to star.

As we previously reported, the character Blade was recently hinted at in the Disney+ Marvel series Loki, when Mobius (Owen Wilson) complains to Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) about keeping track of Loki variants being tougher than tracking down vampires in the Sacred Timeline. Then, it was officially confirmed that the character was now in the MCU when Ali voiced the character in a post-credits scene with Dane Whitman (Kit Harrington).
