Blade Coming to Television?

Blade Trinity Blade turns the hunt to television
A lot of awkward things have been occurring to the Blade franchise ever since David Goyer decided to direct Blade: Trinity. First, the movie was not as good as either Blade or Blade II and, second, Wesley Snipes actually sued the studio about the final installment not being up to his standards. Snipes even went one step further and said that he saw too many white people on the set of Blade: Trinity. Wow, that is a lot of unexpected occurrences, and this latest news is one more; however, at least this news sounds like good news.

Blade Likes Spike TV

In an interview with Sci-Fi Wire, David Goyer tells the news site that he is working on a television series for Blade, based directly off of the movies. Each episode will be one-hour long, with at least thirteen episodes slated for the first season. Here is a little of what David Goyer had to say about Blade: The Television Series:

We're doing a Blade TV show. I'm co-writing the pilot with [comic writer] Geoff Johns, and it's going to be Spike's first dramatic show, and it's going to air next June.

It'll be Blade, but it's different than the movies, that's all I can say.

May I ask how different? Judging by the latest falling out after Blade: Trinity, I don't know if we should expect an appearance by Wesley Snipes. However, so much unexpected stuff has happened to this franchise that maybe we should just expect anything and everything.

Since the first episode of Blade is just under a year away, I guess we will have plenty of time for updates. You can check out the whole interview at Sci Fi Wire.

Stay tuned for updates.
