For a Screenwriter, Sometimes There is no Better Director than Yourself

February 28th, 2004

Screenwriter David S. Goyer wrote the first two movies of the Blade Trilogy. But a couple of scenes he wrote were cut for time and budgetary reasons. But now that he's writing and directing Blade Trinity, he's able to put those scenes back in.

The first is a 70s-style car chase / vampire fight between Blade in his black 1968 Dodge Charger versus a gang of vampires on motorcycles. A spectacular homage to such car chase classics as the ones in The French Connection or Bullitt. The other scene is a ramped up version of the original's Blood Farm where vampires keep comatose humans. Instead of just a few humans, like the first film, there are a few thousand.

This will be the last Blade movie, as star Wesley Snipes wants to move on to other projects, including possibly the movie adaptation of another Marvel Comic Book character, Black Panther. But fans of the franchise shouldn't fret, there is a rumor of possible spin-off starring Ryan Reynolds and Jessica Biel.
