Wesley Snipes Hopes The New Blade Version Will Be Well-Received

The 59-year-old actor Wesley Snipes thinks that Ali will do great with the Blade character that people are so fascinated with. Snipes’s only question is whether the people around Ali will be able to make a film as special and iconic as the earlier version.

Actor Mahershala AliMarvel announced the film back in July 2019. Writer Stacy Osei-Kuffour (Watchmen) is penning the script, with Bassam Tariq (Mogul Mowgli) set to direct. Delroy Lindo also joined the cast. That is all known about the movie so far.

Wesley Snipes is most interested in how the audience will react to the movie. He is hoping for the same reactions that they received with the earlier versions when audiences were clapping and yelling in the movie theaters.

The Upcoming Netflix Series True Story

Fans of Snipes can see the actor play in another dark story, although this one does not include vampires – his upcoming Netflix series, True Story.

Wesley Snipes (left) and Kevin Hart (right) in True StoryTrue Story stars Snipes and Kevin Hart as two brothers who face an intense situation when a tour stop in Kid’s (Hart) hometown of Philadelphia becomes a matter of life and death. The results of a lost evening with his wayward older brother (Snipes) can potentially destroy everything he’s worked so hard to achieve. Whereas Snipes character is ready to do just about anything for fame, the actor said he wasn’t likely to go that far in real life.

Snipes has revealed that he told production from the very start that he wouldn’t want them to bring him in as a “sidekick.” Wesley Snipes also said that Hart handled the dark tones of the series well, even though the 42-year-old actor Kevin Hart is mostly known for playing in comedies.
