The Blade Franchise Fractures

Well, this is just shitballs. Despite the fact that each Blade film grossed less than the previous one (Trinity only scored $52 million), Hollywood is so fucking hard up for material that it's dipping back into the Blade franchise not for another sequel, but worse: A spin-off prequel featuring Stephen Dorff's character, Deacon Frost.

And, according to Dorff, director Stephen Norrington, who directed the original blade and is lined up to direct a remake of The Crow (stupid, stupid, stupid) is planning a prequel trilogy revolving around Frost's character, who as you may recall was a young upstart (not born a vampire) who clashed with elders over whether vampires should rise up and enslave humanity. I guess we'd find out how he became a vampire.

And according to Dorff, "I would rather be in a good, small film than a hit which wasn't any good." Actually, at this point in his career, I think Dorff would just rather be in any film, since he's not exactly cleaning up at the box office since, I dunno. Forever.

There were also a few more details on that Crow remake, in which Norrington revealed that the remake will actually focus on an entirely different character than the original. According to Norrington, "Whereas [Alex] Proyas' original was gloriously gothic and stylized, the new movie will be realistic, hard-edged and mysterious, almost documentary-style."

I think "realistic, hard-edged and mysterious" is code for a fat bowl of straight-to-DVD donkey dicks.
