Bring Back Blade

In an interview with ShockTilYouDrop, David Goyer (director of upcoming "Magneto"), said how he would like to return to the "Blade" franchise. Goyer, who wrote all three original "Blade" films, mentioned that a "Blade" reboot would be a good idea.

"I heard rumors that they [New Line Cinema] may want to start from scratch with a new person playing Blade. It's funny because I thought about how I never wanted to do a vampire film ever again because I'm sick of it. But I was reading the Tomb of Dracula Omnibus and I hadn't read them in a long time and I thought it might be cool to do another vampire movie at some point."

Either a remake or a reboot, the "Blade" franchise has grossed over $400 million worldwide and had a short-lived television series. Goyer had his own thoughts on how reboots work.

"God, it feels like they remake movies five years after they come out now," Goyer answers when asked if there's the possibility of seeing Blade's resurrection on screen. "I'm sure New Line at some point would like to do another version of it. Me? Never say never, but I think remakes are more successful the more time there is in between. Honestly, I think they should have waited for the new 'Hulk.' I like the new one. But the longer time you have between remakes [and their originals], the better. For me, ten years is the minimum you really need."

Do you want a "Blade" reboot?
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
