Hesham Nazih has composed original music for Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ original series Moon Knight. The show marks the first major English language project of the composer who is best known for scoring numerous Egyptian features and TV shows, including The Blue Elephant, Ibrahim Labyad, Tito and Born a King. It has not been confirmed yet whether Nazih is composing the score for all six episodes, but his contribution is believed to be a major part of the show’s music. The 6-part drama is directed by Mohamed Diab (Amira, Clash, Cairo 678) and Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead (The Endless, Synchronic) and stars Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke and May Calamawy. The series revolves around Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life and discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy, Fantastic Four) serves as the project’s head writer. Diab, Isaac & Slater are also executive producing the Marvel Studios production with Kevin Feige (Avengers: Endgame, Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy), Louis D’Esposito & Victoria Alonso (WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Grant Curtis (Spider-Man 3, Drag Me to Hell) and Brad Winderbaum (Hawkeye, What If…?). Moon Knight will premiere on March 30, 2022 on Disney+.
