Blade: Kevin Feige optimistic about vampire hunter's return

Kirsten Howard Jun 29, 2017

When it comes to Blade's return to the big screen, it might be a matter of 'when' not 'if'...

Before Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man, before Chris Evans' Captain America, before the McU as we know it...there was Blade. The fearless daywalking vampire hunter was played to perfection by Wesley Snipes in two box office hits, before a tumultuous third instalment in the franchise - Blade: Trinity - pumped the brakes on Blade's cinematic story.

Since then, there's been a dodgy TV series adaptation that replaced Snipes with rapper Sticky Fingaz, and then silence (bar a few hopeful mutterings that Blade could resurface or be rebooted for the big screen once more).

Realistically, the only person who could really make it happen is Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige,

John Cusack: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

google+

John Cusack has made 17 films in four years. We've found the ones that have gone all-but straight to DVD and watched them...

John Cusack is a bit of a Hollywood oddity. There’s no pattern to the type of movie he will choose to do, so he’s always kept us on our toes. Sure, he’ll make a dumb action movie, but that will often afford him the chance to make a few smaller gambles later on. Up until the last few years he’s played the system very well, but recently his ethic appears to have, um, waned? A little?

Since the heady days of Say Anything and Sixteen Candles he’s come to represent a sort of slightly weird-looking, awkwardly charming, offbeat everyman that men aged 18-49 can look at and go 'me'” - which is fine. There’s a place for that, as

Wesley Snipes Met With Marvel About Playing Blade Again

Many attribute the success of the contemporary superhero genre to Bryan Singer’s X-Men, which hit theaters in 2000 and helped usher in a new wave of comic book adaptations. However, the first successful Marvel Comics adaptation was Blade, which arrived in 1998 and starred Wesley Snipes as the titular vampire superhero.

The Blade franchise, while initially highly successful, came to a screeching halt with 2004’s Blade Trinity (and certainly wasn’t helped by the terrible 2006 series starring Sticky Fingaz), and since then the rights to the character have reverted back to Marvel Studios. We’ve heard rumors that the studio could be bringing the character to the darker, bloodier Netflix side of the McU, and expected that the role would be recast. According to Snipes himself, however, there’s a chance that he may don Blade’s fangs again after all.

In an interview with Deadline about his upcoming series The Player,

8 TV shows based on horror movies -- and how they fared
With the recent successes of such TV series as "American Horror Story," "Hannibal" and Showtime's "Penny Dreadful," horror is hot on the small-screen right now -- so much so that in addition to MTV's forthcoming small-screen "Scream" spinoff, TV studios are in the midst of bringing a horde of cinematic fright-film properties to television, ranging from "Shutter Island" to "The Devil's Advocate" to "The Mist." In light of this, I've taken a look back at eight previous horror movie-to-tv translations and analyzed why they hit -- or didn't -- with audiences. "Bates Motel" (A&E) Based on: "Psycho" Aired: 2013-present Why it did (or didn't) work:a great pedigree ("Lost" showrunner Carlton Cuse), a terrific cast (Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore) and generally positive critical notices gave "Bates Motel" a sheen of respectability that worked well in this Golden Age of prestige television. The show has so far aired three successful seasons

Fox’s ‘Empire’ Stirs Memories of Upn’s ‘Platinum’

Fox’s ‘Empire’ Stirs Memories of Upn’s ‘Platinum’
Longtime participants in the Television Critics Assn. press tour often get hit with a sense of deja vu while covering the twice-yearly marathon of TV gabbery.

NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt had that I’ve-been-here-before feeling as reporters were yakking about the strong debut of Fox’s “Empire.” The show reminded Greenblatt of the drama “Platinum” that he and former producing partner David Janollari shepherded for Upn back in 2003.

The show’s original title was “Empire,” but they couldn’t clear it. And “Empire” star Terrence Howard auditioned for one of the lead roles, Greenblatt recalled.

“Who know our show was so ahead of its time?” he joked.

Like “Empire,” “Platinum” revolved around the drama of the hip-hop music business and a family trying to hold their empire together, and the two shows also came from notable auspices: Lee Daniels and Danny Strong for “Empire,” John Ridley, Sofia Coppola and Francis Ford Coppola for “Platinum.

6 Awesome Villain Ideas For A Blade Reboot Movie

New Line Cinema

1998′s Blade movie was undoubtedly the trigger that instigated the current huge popularity being enjoyed by comic book movies as a genre – the pioneer of the modern comic book movie, so to speak. It was swiftly followed by fellow Marvel offerings X-Men (2000) and Spider-Man (2002) and the rest is history.

Such was Blade’s success, it spawned two sequels – 2002′s Blade II and 2004′s Blade: Trinity – and a 2006 television series (Blade: The Series) that was set in the same continuity as the movies, albeit starring a different actor (Wesley Snipes was replaced by Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones).

However, it has been ten years since the last movie and the television series did pretty badly performance wise (it was cancelled after one season because of poor ratings). Sticky Fingaz certainly won’t be asked to return and, at 51 years old, Wesley Snipes’ vampire hunting days are over. So how about a Blade reboot?

House of the Dead 2 (2005) Review

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

House of the Dead 2 (2005)

Director: Michael Hurst

Writers: Mark A. Altman, Michael Roesch, Peter Scheerer

Cast: Emanuelle Vauguier (Alexandria), Ed Quinn (Ellis), Sticky Fingaz (Dalton), Nadine Velazquez (Rodriguez), Sid Haig (Professor Curien)

I can’t believe that I’m singing the praises of a “House of the Dead” movie. The first one was such a big disappointment, that a sequel that was so dissimilar to it in every way was a pretty welcome sight. I’m not a gamer, and perhaps I might have enjoyed the original, a bit more if I had. Doubtful, but maybe.

This one has Sid Haig, the hardest working man in exploitation film for four decades and counting as a professor that has come up with a way to reanimate the dead. He picks up a test subject/victim from the local college. She ends up being the

What to Watch: March 25-April 11, 2014

What to Watch is back in two-week form this time around, hitting the most important Blu-ray, DVD, and streaming offerings from both March 25th and April 1st. No April Fool’s Day jokes here. We’re above that. Sorta. What you will find is one of the best movies of last year, a fantastic comedy series, a foreign film you really should see, and further proof that John Cusack is merely slipping into straight-to-dvd oblivion like that damn horse in “The Neverending Story”. Pick one of the six. What the Hell, pick two.

Film Review: ‘The Bag Man’

Film Review: ‘The Bag Man’
The titular satchel in “The Bag Man” is one of those coveted carry-ons, like the glowing briefcases of “Kiss Me Deadly” and “Pulp Fiction” fame, that everybody wants, nobody seems to know the contents of, and which makes a world of trouble for all who come into contact with it. They include a melancholy widower hitman (John Cusack) and the assorted denizens of a fleabag Louisiana motel in this self-consciously weird post-modern noir that wrests some formidable competition to emerge as one of the most head-scratching money jobs of both Cusack’s and special guest star Robert De Niro’s careers. Despite a decent $14,000 average in its opening frame on two U.S. screens, the future looks bleak for the reportedly self-financed debut feature of British director David Grovic, while the name cast may stimulate modestly better VOD traffic.

Though the script (credited to Grovic and Paul Conway) purports to
