Wesley Snipes Interested in a 4th 'Blade' Movie

The actor reveals that he would come back to the franchise if they had the right script.

Snipes wants more Blade
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 and stars Wesley Snipes, Stephen Dorff, Kris Kristofferson, N'Bushe Wright, Donal Logue, Udo Kier, Arly Jover, Traci Lords. The film is directed by Stephen Norrington.

Blade: Trinity was released December 10th, 2004 and stars Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, Dominic Purcell, Jessica Biel, Ryan Reynolds, Parker Posey, Mark Berry, John Michael Higgins. The film is directed by David S. Goyer.

    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.

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

    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!

    @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!!!

    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.

    YES! The need to make a Blade 4, to make up for the Blade: trinity one! Pretend they never made it! The 1st two movies were GREAT! So get a Goood script first and lets make it happen and it has to be Rated R. Not PG-13 or it will not work! Snipes & David S. Goyer disagreed on the 3rd Blade Snipes didn't like alot of the comedy & storyline! So Snipes was Right because it did tank at the movies! So listen to the man next time! people want to see BLADE AGAIN done the right waythis time OK!***

    Part 2 sucked sewage water also. Snipes did not play Blade cool, like he did in the original. He was all sarcastic and everything. I did not like it at all. It was like Blade got c*cky or something. Remember when he said to Ron Perlman, "Oooooh, I'm scared", with that dumbass grin? Blade wouldn't act that way. He might say "You got me shaking in my shoes", and never even crack a smile. The humor would be delivered better if he didn't smile.

    The only thing I hated about Trinity, was how Blade acted all pissed off when Jessica Biel and Ryan Reynolds saved him from his captors, and he insults them when they get back to their lair. They saved his ass and he was a total indignant a-hole! And I did care for the great Dracula getting his ass kicked and then acting all honorable. He needs to take his ass back to prison (break).

    And that Kris Kristopherson cameo was just plain stupid. How did Dracula know that Kristopherson (Whistler) had anything to do with that other group or even Blade for that matter? Whistler was dead and gone before Dracula was even woke up, right? Did he see a picture of him lying around somewhere? Maybe I'm forgetting something.

    I welcome a fourth, as long as we get the original Blade. Oh, and I guess Snipes isn't disenchanted with the franchise anymore. After hearing some of the things he said about his screen time on Trinity, it seemed like he'd never come back. I guess the visit from the taxman made him reconsider, huh?

    Well, it's good to see him getting back in the saddle again. No more home gym infomercials for him. Even though he really needs to hit the gym before production starts on B4.
