Wesley Snipes Reportedly Earning $3M For Blade 4
Although The Expendables 3 was a box-office bust, Wesley Snipes is reportedly sinking his teeth into a sequel that will be worth the money.
The world needs another vampire movie like Snipes needs another tax lien, but it appears that Blade 4 is around the corner regardless.
Confidenti@l has learned Wesley Snipes is set to reprise his lead role in “Blade,” the 1998 vampire thriller that made more than $130 million and generated two sequels.
Sources close to Snipes tells us the 52-year-old actor’s comeback after being released from prison in April 2013 (after serving two and a half years for tax evasion) is “looking good” and that he’ll make $3 million from this film, plus a cut of the profits. Let’s hope he remembers to pay Uncle Sam this time.
The last installment of Blade was panned by critics but still earned $128 million in theaters alone. There’s no limit to the milk a cash cow can produce.
