Actor Stephen Dorff kicked a lot of ass in the original Blade and has ended up becoming one hell of a fan favorite of the franchise (let’s just continue to pretend Trinity never happened, okay?). With Hollywood enjoying prequels, Dorff talked a bit about the possibility of a film that follows his character of Deacon Frost before his showdown with the Daywalker.
“Me and Steve Norrington [director of the original Blade] had a cool treatment for that, and when vampires got all this trending again, we thought we should do the adult version, more of like a Scarface Deacon Frost movie,” Dorff tells Sean Plummer’s Dark Lord Bunnykins blog. “And it sounded cool, this treatment, but then there was so many legal things. Like New Line owned Blade and Marvel’s got…all this hype into ‘The Avengers’ and this group movie which sounds like such a mistake.”
“Blade was such a ’90s thing,” Dorff continues. “I didn’t want to do a Blade movie, I just really wanted to take Deacon and then do a whole other thing which was much more today. So the idea me and Steve had, we might just end up fictionalizing it and just making a new character which might even be better for us. And he’s someone I really like and would love to work with again. So hopefully whenever we get a chance we’ll get into that.”
