Sources claim his comeback is "looking good" after serving nearly three years in a federal prison for tax evasion, and that he will make $3 million for the sequel, along with an undisclosed cut of the profits.
Wesley Snipes starred as the title character in 1998's Blade, 2002's Blade 2 and 2004's Blade: Trinity, which were all distributed by New Line Cinema. Marvel Studios reacquired the rights to Blade in May 2013, and the studio announced later that month that a new Blade movie is being developed.
Neither Blade 4 nor the casting of Wesley Snipes has been announced by Disney and Marvel Studios. The film doesn't currently have a screenwriter or director attached, but we'll keep you posted as soon as more information comes in.
