Blade the Prequel ?

Over on the SFX website they’re reporting that talks Stephen Norrington, who directed the first Blade trilogy is working with Stephen Deacon Frost Dorff to revamp (come on I had to try for at last one vamp joke) Blade in the form of a prequel film.

Not sure how I feel about this. I loved the first Blade film, thought number two was pretty good and three was ok but not a patch on one. The thought of  rebooting the series however doesn’t fill me with dread as I think there’s still a lot you could do with the character. I just don’t know if I want to see them do the whole prequel thing.I would rather see it move forwards than backwards.

I’ll play the wait and see card until I know more.

  1. What did you think of the tv series? It only ran to one season, but I thought it was surprisingly good, considering lack of Wesley.

      I wasn’t sure to begin with but as it went on it grew on me and by the halfway point I was lovin the hell out of it. I wish it had got a second season as I think it would have gotten even better.

      • Almost exactly my response to it. Took them till the halfway point to really get out from under the shadow of the franchise, I think.
