Vancouver Setting for Marvel's "Moon Knight"

Live Action TV Series

Marvel Studios, a division of Marvel Entertainment, Inc. and Vancouver based No Entertainment have entered into an agreement to develop a live-action TV series based on Marvel Comics' Moon Knight.

The announcement was made by David Maisel of Marvel Entertainment and Larry Sugar of No Equal Entertainment.

Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, the character first appeared in Marvel Comics' "Werewolf by Night" #32 (August 1975), as soldier of fortune 'Marc Spector' who has a close encounter with Egyptian moon god 'Konshu' and transforms into the vengeful 'Moon Knight'.

"'Moon Knight' has all the elements for an engaging television series," said Maisel.

"No Equal Entertainment 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."

Production will be spearheaded by No Equal Entertainment's Sugar, noted for The Collector.
