Blade is coming to television courtesy of Spike TV. The network and New Line announced today that the comic and film franchise will be adapted into a two-hour original drama -- the channel's first stab at scripted entertainment.
I really have mixed feelings about this. It will be written by David Goyer, the writer of some of the worse movies ever made: Death Warrant (1990), Kickboxer 2: The Road Back (1991), Demonic Toys (1992), The Puppet Masters (1994), The Crow: City of Angels (1996), Nick Fury: Agent of Shield (1998), and Batman Begins (2005)... ugh... In fairness, he also wrote Dark City (1998) and the deteriorating Blade film series, which started strong and has galloped down hill. After the deplorable writing job on Batman Begins and Blade: Trinity (which he also directed) I would have thought they would have sought out fresh blood.
Spike TV itself has poor taste in movies, so I am afraid of what will become of this brilliant character.
My name is Charlie, but if your looking for my work, I go by C. E. Dorsett. I write scifi, fantasy, and a touch of horror. I like to play with gothic, steampunk, decopunk, epic fantasy, and wuxia. I love to tell stories and talk about books, movies, series, and music.
