Wesley Snipes in Talks to Return as ‘Blade’

Since he’s got some back taxes to pay, Wesley Snipes is really trying to get some work done; gotta get that government-mandated cash. The actor, and tax evader, is in talks to return as Blade.

Marvel Studios acquired the right to Blade a few years ago, creating rumors for a Netflix series with other “Midnight Sons” characters. The actor spoke to Deadline:

“[Blade 4] is controlled by Marvel and we did have a really productive and a wonderful meeting and we discussed a number of things. I don’t know where it’s on their schedule at this point, that hasn’t been decided. I guess it’s still up in the air.”

He also spoke of joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which I’m sure fans would still be fine with.

“I’ve always been a fan of these pieces and adaptations and I’d be nice to be a part of the family again. But if we don’t to a Blade 4 or something else with Marvel, we’ll do something else.”

Most recently, Blade has been played by a guy with an even better name that Wesley Snipes, Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones in 2006. Who here loves that his name is so white-bread-bland and his nickname is “Sticky Fingaz?” But it seems it will be Snipes set to reprise his role last seen in 2004.

Now other ways Snipes can make money: at home karate video DVD series? Yup can’t wait for that one.
