Dorff Elaborates on Blade Prequel, Thinks Avengers is a Mistake

The Scarface of horror

Blade actor Stephen Dorff and director Stephen Norrington have been vocal before about their plans for a spin-off film that followed Dorff’s baddie Deacon Frost.

Journo Sean Plummer recently talked to the actor, however, and what Dorff had to say about the project was too rich to overlook.

“Me and Steve Norrington 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. 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.”

That last part is the bit I love. He goes on to say…

“Blade was such a ’90s thing. I didn’t want to do a Blade movie, I just really wanted to take Deacon and do 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.”

Perhaps he’ll get that chance sooner than later. Norrington just walked away from developing a new Crow film.
