A possilbe remake of Blade might be in the works and Wesley Snipes may not reprise his role as the coolest vampire ever (with the exception of that guy in “John Carpenter’s Vampires”).
Could there be a new, reworked version of Marvel’s Blade headed to the big screen? Initially, the thought of a Blade franchise reboot sounds kind of crazy, but when you think about it, the first film in the series is already almost 10 years old. And with the later films in the franchise becoming increasingly cheesy, maybe it’s not a bad idea.
The Bloody-Digusting.com website reports that just such a move is being plotted right now in Hollywood. A source for the website contends that the “comic property” (we assume this means Marvel and/or the creative team currently working on the comic) is pushing for the redo rather than New Line, who may or may not be involved.
Marvel is currently attempting to relaunch the Hulk franchise in a similar fashion, which could have them feeling their oats and looking for other stale properties to freshen up. The Blade do-over chatter could also be fueled by the hot-as-fire vampire movie trend that just won’t let up (see Underworld 3).
