Marvel Studios and Vancouver-based production company, No Equal Ent., have entered into an agreement to develop a live-action television series based on Marvel's cult favorite MOON KNIGHT.
First introduced by Marvel Comics in the mid-1970s, MOON KNIGHT presents the story of soldier of fortune Marc Spector. After an encounter with the Egyptian god of vengeance and the moon deity Konshu, he becomes Moon Knight, a superhero who hunts criminals in the night, bringing them to justice.
"MOON KNIGHT has all the elements for an engaging television series. No Equal Ent. has a real passion for the project and an amazing vision of how to bring the character and storyline to life that will appeal to action and sci-fi enthusiasts," said David Maisel of Marvel Ent.
The production will be spearheaded by No Equal Ent.'s Larry Sugar, who brings to the project more than 35 years experience as a Hollywood exec and producer. His track record includes television series such as THE COLLECTOR, ROMEO, FIRST WAVE, DEAD MAN'S GUN and SO WEIRD.
Sugar added, "We are delighted to be in business with Marvel Ent. and believe that MOON KNIGHT will make a compelling and long-lasting television series."
