Moon Knight has found its director. The Disney+ series from Marvel Studios has tapped filmmaker Mohamed Diab to step behind the camera.

Oscar Isaac leads the series, which centers on Marc Spector, an ex-Marine turned mercenary whose multiple alter egos allow him to better fight crime.

Diab, who hails from Egypt, went to Cannes with his well-regarded 2016 film Clash, whichwas set in 2013 in Cairo during the 2013 clashes behind pro- and anti-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators. He came on the scene with his directorial debut Cairo 678, which was awarded best feature and best international feature at the Chicago International Film Festival.

Umbrella Academy's Jeremy Slater is overseeing Moon Knight and leading the writer's room.

Moon Knight joins a number of shows Marvel Studios has in the works for Disney+, including WandaVision, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Tom Hiddleston's Loki, which are the first three expected out of the gate.

Diab is repped by CAA and Greenberg Glusker.
