Blade: Trinity: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Reynolds will give the action genre a try as he is in final negotiations to star opposite Wesley Snipes in the latest installment of New Line Cinema's Blade franchise.
In Blade: Trinity, Reynolds would play an acerbic vampire hunter who is in league with Snipes' Blade character. The third installment of the Marvel Comic-based franchise is being written and directed by David Goyer.
"Blade" is being produced by Goyer, Snipes, Lynn Harris and Peter Frankfurt. New Line production president Toby Emmerich and production exec Cale Boyter are overseeing the project; a September start date is planned for the Vancouver shoot. Reynolds will follow "Blade" with the independent feature "Waiting," from director Robert McKitrick, which shoots in New Orleans in the winter. Reynolds is repped by UTA, Original Management and attorney Jeanne Newman.
