Blade prequel?

07.06.2009

Interested in a BLADE prequel that may not actually be about Blade?

Original BLADE villain Stephen Dorff and director Steve Norrington are interested -- they're planning a new project that focuses on the ostentatious upstart bloodsucker Deacon Frost from the first movie. Norrington tells Mania that the idea (which he credits to Dorff) "has evolved into a very interesting story" but that it will somehow be part of the Daywalker's existing mythology -- "The linkage to BLADE is still big in the equation."

The question of rights or studio doesn't seem to be addressed, however. Marvel's half-vamp fang-fighter was last seen on screen in the weak BLADE TRINITY (and on TV in the Sticky Fingaz-starring Spike series, a personal guilty pleasure), although the recently condensed New Line presumably still has some kind of legal grasp on the characters.

As to when it may happen (if at all), it could be a while as Norrington is currently putting together his remake/reboot/reimagination of THE CROW.

Extra Tidbit: Though he "quit" Hollywood after LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, Norrington also flirted with the live-action AKIRA and remake of CLASH OF THE TITANS.

Interesting, not that this will ever happen, who's gonna watch a Blade movie without Blade? and what would they call it?, still to see Dorff as Frost again would make me happy

Could be interesting; Deacon Frost was always an intriguing punk.

And am I the only person who likes all three BLADE films almost equally?

Kind of reminds me of what they did with Underworld 3, and that horrible movie doesn't leave me a lot of hope for this one. I'm also getting a bit tired of all the vampire movies right now.

Blade was alright, i mean yeahh Snipes, Dorff and Kristofferson rocked; but Blade II is one of my favorite guilty pleasure(kind of) movies... I've yet to be dissapointed in Del toro's work. If you haven't seen Cronos, DO IT cause its one of the best vampires movies, along with Near Dark and Martin, maybe Let the Right One in.

sorry for rambling

And i'm not quite sure about a prequel

Dorff as Deacon

I'm game. Stephen Dorff was fantastic the first time around. Charismatic, naturalistic, and completely badass. He'd rip these wannabe emo vampires to shreds given the opportunity.

Say...that'd be a great trailer. Frost crashing a party of little spiky haired Twilight bitches and ripping them to shreds.

Stephen Dorff, in my opinion, was the best thing about BLADE so I'm all for it.
