Wesley Snipes Blade To Be Resurrected By Marvel Studios
The vampire hunter, played by Wesley Snipes, was the focus of a cult trilogy and it came to an end in 2004.
However, looks like Blade is coming back for another show down.
In an Interview with Vice to mark the 20th anniversary of the American release of the first Blade movie, Wesley Snipes had the following words to say about the future of the franchise:
“There are a lot of conversations going around right now and we’re very blessed to have the enthusiasm and interest in something coming from that world again.
We’ve created two projects that fit perfectly into this world and, when people see them,
I think they’re only going to have a problem with deciding which one they love the most.
All the main execs [at Marvel] and my team, we’ve been discussing for the past two years.
Everyone’s enthusiastic about it, everybody gets it.
But they got a business to run and they gotta square the things that they gotta figure out before they can get to it, I guess. In the meantime, we got a business to run and our own slate of things to do so…
But the next time you see something in [the Blade universe], mark my words: what we did before is child’s play compared to what we can do now.”
Although no release date yet, but t looks pretty soon.
