Wesley Snipes Reportedly Returning For A Fourth Blade Movie 14

Share

Recently, Wesley Snipes expressed interest in returning for another Blade movie. Snipes told MTV, “Yeah, I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned, and there's some latitude for us to build on. I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things that I've learned how to do now, that I didn't know how to do then. I think we're better at making that kind of a film now.

Now, the New York Daily News is reporting that Snipes is indeed going to reprise his role as Blade. According to the newspaper, Snipes will make $3 million for a fourth Blade film plus a cut of the profits.

Of course, the report should probably be taken with a grain of salt, because the studio that made the first three Blade movies no longer has the rights to the character. Since it’s been so long since a Blade movie was made, the rights to Blade have reverted back to Marvel Studios.

Knowing that Marvel Studios usually has a pretty lengthy negotiation process with actors requiring them to sign multi-picture deals, it would seem somewhat unlikely that Snipes could have signed a deal so quickly after having expressed an interest.

However, it’s always possible, and if the report is true, then it would certainly be great to see a Marvel Studios’ Blade movie.

    If this does happen, then this would be the first time, that I have heard of, an actor following his franchise to a different studio...usually they just reboot it and wash their hands of the previous take. I personally don't see Marvel doing this...but its all possible I suppose.

    just don't forget the tax man .....

  8. Re-new interests in Blade and Racquel's (Traci Lords) twin sister out for revenge, Vampiers and day walkers, what could be better?

  9. Absolutely bring him back for a forth, just have him been in cyrogenic hibernation by some bad guy and a group of new heroes help him escape and fight off Dracula...bring in Moon Knight, Werewolf By Night maybe Punisher...something to introduce some Marvel characters...

    1) I don't see Marvel doing it either.

    2) Marvel's brought RDJ over from Paramount, and Sin City went from Miramax to The Weinstein Company, bringing pretty much all of the cast with it. Both of those are JUST BARELY moving between studios, but (in the case of Sin City, where the production moved, too, not just distribution) I'd count it. I'm sure there are some other similar instances. It's odd but not unheard-of.
