It's been some 27 years since the Sylvester Stallone came out of suspended animation for 1993 action movie Demolition Man.
James Earl Jones will be once more donning his lion skin shawl to play King Jaffe Joffer, ruler of Zamunda for the sequel to Eddie Murphy classic Coming To America.
While Marvel was announcing its grand plans for its 'phase four and five' movies, some of us were sparing a thought for Wesley Snipes.
Snipes tried to make his version of the Marvel hero saga two decades ago. It would have had little in common with the new release.
Twenty-five years ago, Woody Harrelson learned the hard way that white men really can’t jump …unless they stretch a little first. When Yahoo Movies chatted with the Oscar-nominated actor recently for his new movie, Wilson, he revealed that he had a side bet going with Wesley Snipes while they were shooting Ron Shelton’s 1992 basketball comedy classic, White Men Can’t Jump, which celebrates its silver anniversary on March 27. As a former college hoops star, wide-eyed Billy (Harrelson), is an all-around better player than the self-taught Sidney (Snipes).
Sorry ‘Blade’ fans - the vampire hunter won’t be back after all. It’s no secret that Kate Beckinsale thinks there’s grand plans for Blade - Marvel’s iconic vampire hunter. Asked whether or not ‘Underworld’ and ‘Blade’ could crossover, she explained that the filmmakers approached Marvel with the idea… but they already had plans for the character.
It looks as though the rumoured new ‘Blade’ movie might not feature Wesley Snipes as the leading character… as the franchise shifts focus towards a new, female hunter. According to Bleeding Cool, Marvel’s infamous vampire hunter may be taking a back seat… as he hands the film franchise over to his daughter. “Bleeding Cool has previously reported that the newly to-be-relaunched Blade comic featuring the daughter of Blade, has been delayed,” they explain.
Fresh from San Diego Comic Con comes word that action veteran Wesley Snipes has spoken with Marvel about a possible revival of the ‘Blade’ movies. Snipes produced and took the lead in the three ‘Blade’ movies made between 1998 and 2004 for New Line Cinema, and the original film about the vampire hunting anti-hero is often regarded as one of the key turning points for Marvel movies. The film rights to Blade have long since reverted to Marvel, but there has been no word thus far on whether the studio had any plans for the character.
