Marvel planning new R-rated Blade with Wesley Snipes

A source close to We Got This Covered says that Marvel is currently planning an R-rated BLADE movie, and it’s said that Wesley Snipes is likely to be involved in the project. Evidently, the studio has a script which sees The Daywalker training his daughter, Fallon Grey. But this has not been confirmed.

All of this should be taken as a rumor at this point, but it seems to his guy that all of these "rumors" regarding a new BLADE movie are really adding up to something. Like what Snipes himself said about a possible new BLADE movie a few months back:

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, I think they're only going to have a problem with deciding which one they love the most

Snipes on Marvel's involvement:

All the main execs [at Marvel] and my team, we've been discussing for the past two years. Everyone's enthusiastic about it, everybody gets it. But they got a business to run and they gotta square the things that they gotta figure out before they can get to it, I guess. In the meantime, we got a business to run and our own slate of things to do so...But the next time you see something in [the Blade universe], mark my words: what we did before is child's play compared to what we can do now.

Hopefully, we hear something more concrete soon. Until then, how much would you like to see another R-rated BLADE movie starring Wesley Snipes? Let us know below! The original BLADE followed this synopsis:

Half-mortal, half-immortal is out to avenge his mother's death and rid the world of vampires. The modern-day technologically advanced vampires he is going after are in search of his special blood type needed to summon an evil god who plays a key role in their plan to execute the human race.

The original 1997 adaptation was directed by Stephen Norrington (THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN)  from a screenplay written by David S. Goyer based on the character created by Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan. Peter Frankfurt, Wesley Snipes, Robert Engelman, Andrew J. Horne, and Avi Arad produced. It starred Snipes, Stephen Dorff, Kris Kristofferson, N'Bushe Wright, and Donal Logue. But it on Blu-ray HERE.
