Blade Director Confirms Hes No Longer Friends With Wesley Snipes After Clash on Set of Sequel

Filmmakers David S. Goyer confirms feud with the ‘Blade’ main star during the ‘very tortured production’ of the second film ‘Blade: Trinity’ despite the actor’s claims otherwise.

AceShowbiz -Filmmaker David S. Goyer is no longer friends with actor Wesley Snipes after clashing on the set of “Blade: Trinity“.

Snipes has long been rumoured to have tried to strangle the director during the making of the 2004 “Blade” sequel, a story co-star Patton Oswalt detailed in a 2012 interview with the AV Club.

The action man disputed the funnyman’s version of events last year (20), insisting he would have been jailed if he had laid a hand on Goyer and declaring the fight “never happened.”

Now Goyer has weighed in on the industry anecdote, admitting the experience of shooting “Blade: Trinity” spelled the end of his friendship with Snipes – although he stops short of confirming or denying whether the attack actually happened, as per Oswalt’s recollection.

Asked about the alleged incident in a new interview for The Hollywood Reporter, he said, “Let’s just say I have tremendous respect for Wesley as an actor. He used to be a friend. We’re not friends anymore. I am friends with Patton and I worked with Patton since…”

“I don’t think anyone involved in that film had a good experience on that film, certainly I didn’t,” Goyer continued. “I don’t think anybody involved with that film is happy with the results. It was a very tortured production.”

Goyer’s remarks come as franchise producers prepare to revamp the Marvel Comics character for a new generation of fans, with Mahershala Ali suiting up as iconic vampire hunter Blade.
