Wesley Snipes has teased two future Blade projects

Wesley Snipes has revealed that discussions have been had with Marvel regarding the future of Blade, teasing two future projects.

With superheroes and Marvel, in particular, being bigger than ever and the McU always looking for new additions to the roster, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility to see someone like Blade return to the spotlight.

Wesley Snipes turn as the grizzled vampire hunter in the late 90s and early 2000s earned him plenty of fans and the actor would love to return to the role once more. Speaking to Vice, Snipes revealed that Blade’s return is likely, with discussions underway:

“There are a lot of conversations going around right now and we’re very blessed to have the enthusiasm and interest in something coming from that world again. We’ve created two projects that fit perfectly into this world and, when people see them,

Vice Is Back In Business In Canada After Striking Long-Term Deal With Bell Media

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Vice is back in business in Canada after striking a long-term programming deal with Bell Media and hiring a new president.

The youth-skewing media company has inked an agreement with Bell Media that will see the latter become the exclusive Canadian home to programming from Viceland as well as hundreds of hours of Vice programming.

Bruce Willis to Star in MoviePass Films’ First Project, ’10 Minutes Gone’

‘Random Acts of Flyness’: Terence Nance Makes Avant-Garde TV Entertaining, With a Little Help From Jon Hamm

‘Random Acts of Flyness’: Terence Nance Makes Avant-Garde TV Entertaining, With a Little Help From Jon Hamm
“Random Acts of Flyness” may play like one grand television experiment — its sketch-like segments hinge on a whimsical but distinctly dark sense of humor when tackling topics such as patriarchy, white supremacy, and black sensuality — but don’t call it “experimental.”

“I don’t see the show as experimental,” said director, writer, and creator Terence Nance in a recent phone interview with IndieWire. “Definitely avant-garde, but I think the people in the writer’s room are all very skilled at engaging audiences very viscerally in terms of like — ‘Are we going to be able to get people to engage with this consistently, in the way they would sit down and watch ‘Seinfeld’?”

Nance had been kicking around the idea for a television show since 2006, six years before his debut feature-length film, “An Oversimplification of Her Beauty,” put him on the map with a well-reviewed premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

How Miranda Lambert Has Put Blake Shelton Firmly in Her Past

How Miranda Lambert Has Put Blake Shelton Firmly in Her Past
Preparing to write her version of a breakup album fresh off her divorce from Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert turned up at an East Nashville recording studio with a rolling cooler full of alcohol and zero shame. As her astonished writing team looked on, she transformed her raw emotions into telling lyrics, like this standout from lead single "Vice": "Another vice, another call / another bed I shouldn't crawl out of / at seven a.m. with shoes in my hand / Said I wouldn't do it, but I did it again / And I know I'll be back tomorrow night." While co-writer Shane McAnally recalls being stunned by her vulnerability—"I kept looking at you and kept saying,...

Emmys: John Oliver, ‘Saturday Night Live,’ RuPaul Aim for Repeat Wins — Screen Talk Emmy Edition
The 2018 Emmy talk, sketch and unscripted categories could look a lot similar to last year. Categories like the reality races remain mostly unchanged, while the Variety/Talk competition has just one notable switch: “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” replacing “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

Incumbents such as RuPaul (as best reality host), “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” (variety/talk series) and “Saturday Night Live” (variety/sketch series) are all expected to repeat their wins.

But there are a few potential changes on the horizon: Sadly, CNN’s “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” will likely win the Outstanding Informational Series Or Special category as a posthumous tribute to the show’s host.

Also, if the outstanding reality competition category is finally ready for a switch, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” seems like the likely contender.

Just like last year, IndieWire’s Screen Talk podcast will launch a weekly Emmy edition

At&T Getting ‘Tough’ on HBO? More Like Tough Love

  • Variety
When a conversation from a high-level internal meeting somehow makes its way into the press, that’s typically going to expose troubling news about the company involved. But in the curious case of a closed-door town hall last month between the new head of At&T’s content arm and 150 employees from its newly acquired division, HBO, the optics may be distorting reality.

Granted, Monday’s New York Times report is not flattering to either WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey or HBO CEO Richard Plepler. A conversation clearly not intended by its participants to be excerpted at length depicts Stankey talking about the crown jewel of the $85.4 billion acquisition At&T just made as if it was an underperforming laggard in need of a dramatic shakeup. It’s sobering to hear Stankey tell Plepler in front of his own employees that 2018 is “going to be a tough year” for HBO and that

Why Miranda Lambert’s “Vice” is Her Most Important Song

Whether you are a country music fan or not, you have undoubtedly at least heard of the name Miranda Lambert. If you don’t tend to listen to country music, you’re probably familiar with name because of the highly publicized divorce that occurred a year or so ago between her and fellow country music artist Blake Shelton. If you somehow managed to miss out on all of that, you must have managed to avoid the overwhelming majority of the public-at-large, because you couldn’t stand in the line at the supermarket without seeing tabloids dedicating themselves to the subject, nor could you

‘Vice’ Returns For Season 6 With “Raised in The System”

The Emmy-winning weekly news magazine series Vice returns to HBO for its sixth season Friday, April 6th (11:00-11:45 p.m. Et/Pt). The season will premiere with an extended special titled “Raised in the System,” featuring Emmy-nominated actor Michael Kenneth Williams as he embarks on a personal journey to expose the root of the American mass incarceration crisis: the juvenile justice system.

“Raised in the System” offers a frank and unflinching look at people caught up in the system, exploring why the country’s mass incarceration problem cannot be fixed without first addressing the juvenile justice problem, and investigates solutions communities are employing that are resulting in drastic drops in crime and incarceration.

With more than 850,000 juvenile arrests a year and 48,000 kids sitting in lock-up daily, the U.S. has the highest incarceration rate of minors in the world. However, recent FBI statistics reveal that the highest arrest rates for violent crimes,
