The actor boasts that his Blade the days are not over, but he’s working on a new photo that will give the original hard life Blade fans their dose.

“And we put our character in the world of shapeshifters and a bit of time travel. But the action is going to be… well, we did some white belt action in Blade. Now we are going to do some black belt action.
The actor is also expected to appear in Coming 2 America like General Izzi who plays against Eddie murphyis Prince Akeem.
“To have the chance to work with Eddie, Arsenio again, and to be on the set of a movie that was not only iconic, but that had so much of an influence on my continued pursuit in the arts, was wonderful. “Snipes said. “Terrific.”
