Wesley Snipes interested in Blade 4

Imprisoned actor staking vamps again after 2013 release?

 
Wesley Snipes would be willing to star in a fourth film as half-human/half-vampire anti-hero Blade, the star has revealed from behind bars. 
 
"Getting asked this question all the time, my response is: 'Under the right circumstances, with the right team, yes, I'd do another one.' But don't get me wrong, I'm not waiting around for the opportunity. I've got plenty to do," the actor told IGN
 
Snipes, who was imprisoned for three years for failure to file income tax returns and will be released in July 2013, admits there are no current plans to resurrect the franchise but says there are ideas for the character. 
 
"It would be nice to fulfil some of the really cool plans we had for Blade, but didn't get the chance to go live with," he said. 
 
Snipes' interview coincided with the release of the iPhone and iPad game Julius Styles: The International, which was developed by his production company.  
 
"We most definitely want to make a super-cool feature film [based on the game]. Building on what is hoped to be a successful videogame, featuring exotic locations, with a healthy blend of suspense, action and a clever plot twist," he revealed, adding that he already had another project lined up for his release. 
 
"A fantastic animated project titled Omandi Mech 5, which is a futuristic sci-fi action adventure centred around a warrior scientist whose son is resurrected in the body of a giant hero robot."

Does Snipes still have the chops to play Blade? Are you surprised he hasn't done a Demolition Man and busted out of prison? Tell us below!

      @murphy, i enjoyed it too, thought it was a good fun movie. Blade kickin a*s, Jess looking awesome, Reynolds being funny, and Linc (i'll always call him Linc) being a pretty cool Drake, all good in my book.

      Ah 'Blade Trinity' was decent if you embrace it for what it was, a goofy comedy. The first film was an action film, the second a horror and the third a comedy, full of vampire dogs, professional wrestlers, Parker Posey and Ryan Reynolds. Although one of the more amusing lines was I think Jessica Biel explaining how her UV bow was "Hotter than the sun!" or something. Flawed, but enjoyable, I fear old Snipes might be too old for this, my love for Idris Elba is undying and his star is still in the ascendance, failing that Chitwel Ejiofor, moody, angry and stuff!

      Ryan Reynolds gets to call someone a c**k juggling thunder c**t. That's worth the price of admission but it's a fairly terrible film... I'd pay money to see an Idris Elba Blade movie.

      Wesley is washed up now, time to let Stringer Bell wear the leather jacket.

      File this one under 'Stating The Bleedin' Obvious.' You might as well have gone with the headline: Broke Has-been Wants Job.

      If the story is done properly then Blade can be brought back, Wesley Snipes embodies Blade, no one else would be able to pull it off like Snipes does. More on this here bladeforthisera(dot)blogspot(dot)com
