Wesley Snipes Interested in a 4th ‘Blade’ Movie

Snipes wants more Blade It seems that Wesley Snipes could be donning the black trench coat and sword once again. Arrow In the Head recently spoke with Snipes at the junket for his upcoming film Brooklyn's Finest, and Snipes said that he might possibly come back for a fourth Blade film.

Snipes said that there has been some talk about a Blade 4 and that he would be interested if the script was right.

Snipes didn't mention whether or not there is an actual script out there yet, or if someone is working on it, so it seems this is in the very early stages of development. The last film in the series, Blade: Trinity, written and directed by David S. Goyer, starred Snipes along with Kris Kristofferson, Jessica Biel, Dominic Purcell, Ryan Reynolds, Parker Posey, Ashley Scott and Steve Braun.

We'll be sure to keep you posted with any new developments on a new Blade film as soon as we have more information.

Blade was released August 19th, 1998.

Blade: Trinity was released December 10th, 2004.

    Even though I would like to see this happen, Snipes run at Blade is over. The character has gone back to Marvel, and they aren't going to make a rated R film now that they are linked with Disney.

      Marvel would make a bad decision in replacing Wesley Snipes as Blade, I hope they don't do the same mistake like with Edward Norton. bladeforthisera.blogspot.com/

          isnt he still in prison?? anyhow, blade: Trinity sucked in my opinion. Although snipes own and made this role his own, i think that that trinity put such a bad taste in my mouth i might have a hard time letting them make up for that. of course if the script is good, and the story well thought out, it might be worth it.

            Snipes is still the man for this character, hope he just takes care of his tax concerns...

              Blade 3 was horrible, end of the story and if you say differently you know nothing.

              There were things in the B3 that I really enjoyed but it was just plain bad after the few good points.

                Marvel does need their characters back, I want a few crossovers to happen.

                As of Blade, I heard it's being rebooted without Snipes.

                  @Josh: Dammit. This is exactly why I wish Marvel had all their characters back.

                    i didn't like any of the blade movies but i keep watching them, hoping the next one will be the one i don't loathe.

                      @ParkWilliams: Not gonna happen for the same reason a Daredevil/Spidey crossover isn't. Sony owns Spiderman and Time Warner/New Line owns Blade.

                        After reading Moviejunkie1's comment. I can only picture him/her as a 13 year old with braces who has absolutely no taste.

                          How about a Blade/Spiderman crossover with Morbius as the villain? I'd like to see a movie of that. They did in the animated series and it worked great.

                            @Volsci: Trinity could also be referring to the team of Blade, Hannibal, and Whistler who partnered up in the film.

                              No thank you. Trinity means 3 and that was really enough.

                                Blade Trinity was the best. While I LOVED Blade I, the lack of chemistry between Snipes and...the hematologist (can't recall her name) was annoying. Blade II was just bad. Blade Trinity was the bees knees! LOL. I will not watch another one without Wesley Snipes. He is not my favorite actor by any means, but for this franchise, he is very necessary! Bring on Blade 4 and make sure Jessica Biel and Ryan Reynolds are in it!

                                  Blade one was the best.

                                    @illuminati: Gonna have to disagree. I think Blade II is better than the first, and I loved the action scenes because they felt like a comic book fight scene is supposed to look.

                                      Not looking forward to this, too bad. BLADE is a great character, but it's gotten exponentially worse!

                                      BLADE 1- stylish shots, great dark/electronica mood. Good speedy origin, no love interest(a good thing), nice touch into the vampire lore. Great mix of gunfight & swordplay action! AWESOME, AWESOME villain; Deacon Frost is too much fun, and Stephen Dorffs' best moment!

                                      BLADE 2 - overdid the CGI, action scenes looked a 'bit' rubbery. Vampire hunting team promised good chemistry, but didn't gel. The concept of the 'common enemy' was also a good idea, but didn't deliver. And worst of all villain evoke more sympathy than threat. Fun to watch, but nothing great.

                                      BLADE 3 - one of the worst films i've ever seen! It became so utterly useless, the initally annoying comic reliefs(Parker Posey & Ryan) actually turned out the be the ONLY redeeming elements! I hated Jessica Biel and didn't buy her 'GIRLFIGHT' mode. (the aftermath of my friends getting killed certainly is the best time to organize my ipod!). The vampire hunters looked like a geek squad rejects! The sorry excuse for a villian(sorry purcell) looked like a wooden model rejected from the WWE!!!

                                        *if the script is right* good luck with that 1 buddy. Blade 3 was meh. Only good thing out of it was jessica biel pretty much nude

                                          I'd like to see a fourth film. I love the first two; the third is okay. I think they need to go back to Blade's roots though, if they're going to do a fourth. What makes the character work so well is him NOT having sidekicks/helpers who fight with him.
