David Goyer Expects a ‘Blade’ Reboot
"I heard rumors that they may want to start from scratch with a new person playing Blade,” David S. Goyer told Shock Til You Drop. “It’s funny because I thought about how I never wanted to do a vampire film ever again because I’m sick of it. But I was reading the Tomb of Dracula Omnibus and I hadn’t read them in a long time and I thought it might be cool to do another vampire movie at some point."
Goyer made his name working on the Blade trilogy of films, starring Wesley Snipes. He has since gone on to write and direct many other genre films and thought he put the vampire hunter behind him. Hus next project is an original horror film, The Unborn, opening next month.
"God, it feels like they remake movies five years after they come out now," Goyer added. "I’m sure New Line at some point would like to do another version of it. Me? Never say never, but I think remakes are more successful the more time there is in between. Honestly, I think they should have waited for the new Hulk. I like the new one. But the longer time you have between remakes [and their originals], the better. For me, ten years is the minimum you really need."
