Wesley Snipes Wants to Do Another Blade

9 hours ago | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Back in 2004, before Dread Central was allowed to ejaculate its spunk upon the horror genre, Wesley Snipes was pretty vocal about not wanting to do another Blade movie after Blade: Trinity. Now that he's out of jail, his tune has changed... a lot.

"I’d be open to it," Snipes tells MTV regarding whether or not he'd return to the character. "We have some stones left unturned, and there’s some latitude for us to build on. I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things that I’ve learned to do now that I didn’t know how to do then. I think we’re better at making that kind of a film now."

Amazing what the passage of time and incarceration can do for a person! He truly has been rehabilitated.

File this one under "Just Talk" for now, kids!

Wesley Snipes Wants To Make 'Blade 4,' Says "Experimental" 'Blade' Movies Paved The Way For 'Avengers'

15 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Wesley Snipes is back! Sort of! The actor, who has spent the past handful of years mired in legal woes, while also starring in a string of forgettable, low budget movies, returns to the multiplex this month in "The Expendables 3" and could we be looking at a Snipes-aissance? Maybe (but probably not). But don't rain on Snipes' parade, because he's really hoping to make "Blade 4."  "I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then," he told MTV at Comic-Con.

Wesley Snipes Wants To Make Blade 4

17 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Wesley Snipes' movie career was briefly derailed when he was sent to prison in 2010 over tax evasion. But he's out and raring to rev up his action hero status once more, first with The Expendables 3, then possibly with Blade 4. Speaking with MTV, Snipes was quick to dip into his Blade voice upon request, and when asked if he'd consider reprising the role of the dhampir dead-set on slaying vampires, Snipes was clearly enthusiastic about the idea. He said: "I'd be open to it. You know I think we got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude for us to build on. I'd love to get back in the suit and do some things that I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then. I think we're better at making that kind of a film now.

Wesley Snipes says he's up for Blade 4

17 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Blade was a very different kind of comic book film when it was released. For starters, there are not a lot of hard R-rated comic book flicks. However it also delivered on the action front, as well as one of the best portrayals of a protagonist. Wesley Snipes simply Is Blade. When Guillermo del Toro took the reigns for Blade II, he delivered one of the most fun comic book flicks of all time. Afterwards, series writer David S. Goyer stepped up to the plate to direct the third installment, »

Wesley Snipes talks Blade return at Comic-Con: 'I'd love to go back'

28 July 2014 2:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Wesley Snipes has said that he is "open" to a fourth Blade film.

The actor stated that he would be keen to return to the role of Marvel Comics' vampire slayer at San Diego Comic-Con.

He claimed that the New Line Cinema trilogy has proven influential on Marvel Studios' more recent superhero films.

"I'd be open to it," he told MTV. "I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.

"I think we're better at making that kind of a film now. Some of the things we did in the early parts of the franchise were experimental and now they've become customary in a lot of the Avengers films and other comic book adaptations. »

Wesley Snipes Talks Blade 4

27 July 2014 8:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been almost a decade since Blade: Trinity put a stake through heart of Welsey Snipe’s badass vampire killer, effectively halting future franchise installments, but that doesn’t mean Snipes is happy with leaving the role dead and buried. Blade was one of the first big comic book adaptations to kickstart the whole superhero genre, along with the massively successful X-Men films, and now that Snipes has cleared up most of his personal problems, it seems like a perfect time to start talking about a possible Blade 4.

Sure, Snipes is a modest 51 years old as of now, looking a little more aged than the comic book form of Blade, but he’s got a damn fine pitch that would please pretty much every horror fan if it were to become a reality. While talking to EW about the possibility of another Blade film, he revealed the following story »

Wesley Snipes Wants to Chase ‘Twilight’ Kids in ‘Blade 4′

26 July 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In the current age of superhero and comic book films routinely dominating the box office, it’s sometimes hard to remember a time when that wasn’t the case. Well, one needs only to look back at that long-ago decade known as the 1990s to see just how desolate a wasteland the live-action superhero landscape used to be. While 2000′s X-Men tends to get most of the credit for resurrecting the genre, one other comic book property could also rightfully lay claim to some of that glory: Blade.

Blade may not have been an incredibly massive hit, but it did very respectably, roughly doubling its budget at the box office and earning a large cult following that still ...

Wesley Snipes wants Blade return and Twilight crossover

26 July 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now that Blade is back at Marvel Studios, you’d have to assume that there’s absolutely zero chance of the franchise picking up where Blade: Trinity left off, but that has stopped Wesley Snipes from expressing his interest in playing the Daywalker one more time during an interview with MTV (via Cbm) at the San Diego Comic-Con.

“I’d be open to it. I think we’ve got some stones left unturned and there’s some latitude left for us to build on and I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things I’ve learned how to do now that I didn’t know how to do then.

Comic-Con: Wesley Snipes Wants 'Blade 4' to Happen

26 July 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Wesley Snipes headed down to San Diego this weekend to promote his action-packed sequel The Expendables 3 at Comic-Con 2014. In two separate interviews, the actor addresses the possibility of reprising one of his most iconic roles, the vampire-killer Blade.

While it doesn't seem that any definitive plans are in place yet, the actor told MTV that he would be open to returning for Blade 4.

"I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.

Snipes Open To A Fourth "Blade" Movie

26 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It has been ten years since "Blade: Trinity," the last movie to boast Wesley Snipes as the famed vampire comic character and a film now mostly remembered for Ryan Reynolds' insanely ripped torso.

Since then, Snipes has famously spent some time behind bars due to some issues with the IRS. He's finally back on the acting scene though, and "The Expendables 3" in a few weeks is set to herald his return to cinema.

Snipes joined the cast of that latter film at Comic Con this weekend and MTV News was there to ask him if he'd like to slip on the fangs to play Blade once again. The actor seemed enthusiastic about the idea:

Wesley Snipes Shares His Thoughts On A Possible Blade IV Movie

26 July 2014 5:54 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Movie Trailers - Celebrity News After the extremely disappointing Blade: Trinity, the franchise pretty much died out (something which wasn't helped by star Wesley Snipes spending some time behind bars). Marvel Studios regained the rights a few years back as a result, but Snipes - who is part of The Expendables 3 cast - told MTV News at this weekend's Comic-Con that he would like to jump back into the role given the chance. "I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.

What's your favourite Sandra Bullock movie? Digital Spy staff picks

26 July 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Many happy returns to Sandra Bullock, who celebrates her 50th birthday today!

The one-time action movie sidekick and Hollywood's favourite funny girl, Bullock has gradually refashioned herself as a bona fide A-lister thanks to her Oscar-winning turn in The Blind Side and last year's box office smash Gravity.

With such an eclectic back catalogue it's hard to single out any one movie. With that in mind, Digital Spy opened up the floor to staff to pose one simple question: What's your favourite Sandra Bullock movie? Here are the results...

Emma Dibdin, Features Editor - The Net

In the interest of full disclosure, I will say that it's been a good ten years since I last watched The Net. Viewing it now, in the cold light of the 21st century, it has not dated well. But aside from being hugely entertaining with a plot that falls just the right side of ludicrous, »

The Expendables 3 Leaks Online, More Than 189,000 Downloads in 24 Hours

25 July 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In what is sure to be the most notorious case of piracy since the early leak of X-Men Origins: Wolverine five years ago, the Sylvester Stallone-led action blockbuster The Expendables 3 has leaked online, weeks before its release and even its world premiere here in London at the start of next month.

The sequel started appearing on torrent sites on Wednesday, with downloads starting to spike yesterday, and piracy analytics estimate that the film had been downloaded 189,052 times as of 6pm Et Thursday, within twenty-four hours of it landing online.

Whereas Origins was a rough copy of the movie, it’s believed that The Expendables 3 is a DVD-quality copy, which is sure to fuel the rate at which it gets downloaded in the coming weeks even further as fans of the franchise clamour to torrent sites to get an early viewing.

‘Expendables 3’ Leaks Online, Pirated Copy Downloaded 189,000 Times in 24 Hours

25 July 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A DVD-quality copy of actioner “The Expendables 3,” starring Sylvester Stallone, has been downloaded via piracy sites more than 189,000 times over a 24-hour period — three weeks ahead of the U.S. premiere.

The leak of the film on the Internet ahead of its theatrical debut, an unusually rare occurrence, could dampen box office for “Expendables 3.” It’s also worth noting that the target demo for the movie is young males, who are the biggest users of illegal file-sharing services.

With 21 days left to go before the Aug. 15 premiere, the number of illegal downloads of “Expendables 3″ will certainly soar into the millions.

Lionsgate, which is distributing the movie, declined to comment. The original source of the pirated copy is unclear; user comments posted on piracy websites indicate the rip is genuine.

Pirated copies of “Expendables 3″ began cropping up on torrent-sharing sites Wednesday and downloads started to spike Thursday, according to data provided by piracy-analytics firm Excipio. »

The Expendables 3 leaks online just weeks before release

25 July 2014 2:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This morning the internet is abuzz with word that a high-quality version of the upcoming blockbuster action sequel The Expendables 3 has somehow leaked online. While we here at Flickering Myth don’t condone piracy or illegal downloading in any way, this is now very much in the public domain, and is perhaps the most high profile leak to happen over recent years.

With Comic-Con in full swing in the Us, the news that a major film, which is being represented at the festival, has leaked online before its world bow will be a massive blow to distributors Lionsgate, who were hoping this would be a decent moneymaker for them. Whether it affects the film’s cinema release and its box office taking remains to be seen.

There hasn’t been this high-profile a film leak since X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009, when a work-print of the film, which was finished bar some missing CGI, »
