Wesley Snipes would be willing to star in a fourth film as half-human/half-vampire anti-hero Blade, the star has revealed from behind bars.
"Getting asked this question all the time, my response is: 'Under the right circumstances, with the right team, yes, I'd do another one.' But don't get me wrong, I'm not waiting around for the opportunity. I've got plenty to do," the actor told
Snipes, who was imprisoned for three years for failure to file income tax returns and will be released in July 2013, admits there are no current plans to resurrect the franchise but says there are ideas for the character.
"It would be nice to fulfil some of the really cool plans we had for Blade, but didn't get the chance to go live with," he said.
Snipes' interview coincided with the release of the iPhone and iPad game
Julius Styles: The International
, which was developed by his production company.
"We most definitely want to make a super-cool feature film [
based on the game
]. Building on what is hoped to be a successful videogame, featuring exotic locations, with a healthy blend of suspense, action and a clever plot twist," he revealed, adding that he already had another project lined up for his release.
"A fantastic animated project titled
Omandi Mech 5
, which is a futuristic sci-fi action adventure centred around a warrior scientist whose son is resurrected in the body of a giant hero robot."
