Blade will suck on the tube

  • 17comments

The sci-fi action trilogy Blade is being turned into a television series by Spike TV, the Network for Men. Spike, which so far has not hit a solid home run with its base audience, hopes the vampire franchise will develop a Buffy-like following. The movies, which are based on a comic book, tell the story of a sword-wielding "good" vampire who fights bad vampires.

David Goyer, writer of the three theatrical installments, will serve as executive producer. Wesley Snipes, who portrayed the titular character in the films, is not expected to be on board, because: he's currently suing the filmmakers and the studio for breach of contract.

Watch for Blade to rise from its coffin in early 2006.
