    Major lawsuit over Blade:Trinity

    Blade: Trinity star Wesley Snipes has sued New Line Cinema, writer-director David Goyer and executive producer Toby Emmerich in a wide-ranging federal lawsuit seeking more than $5 million in damages, Variety reported. In the suit filed April 18 in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Snipes alleges that, in violation of his contract, the director, screenplay and supporting cast of Blade: Trinity were forced on him. He also claims he's still owed a portion of his fee and that he was harassed and defamed because of his race, the trade paper reported. New Line declined to comment to Variety.

    Goyer wrote all three Blade scripts. According to the complaint, however, Snipes had concerns about his directing the third film in the trilogy and was not informed until six weeks before filming began that Goyer would direct. Similarly, he was not given an opportunity to object to the "juvenile level of humor" in the screenplay and the change in focus from the Blade character to two sidekicks, played by Ryan Reynolds and Jessica Biel. Snipes claims the real purpose of Blade III was to set the stage for spinoffs featuring other cast members, the trade paper reported.

    Snipes blames Goyer for the critical response to the film, citing reviews describing Goyer as a "disastrous choice" and calling the film a "bloody mess." Blade: Trinity, released last December, has grossed $52 million at the domestic box office. Snipes alleges that he is still owed over $3 million on his fee.

    hahaha, yes I agree with Snipes, Blade 3 was aweful, it had good action but no where near the quality of the 1st 2 movies. Blade 3 is a freaking comedy !!!

    LOL! Seriously, Blade: Trinity was NOT that bad... I had a good time. I'd put it on the same level as Blade II except the action scenes actually look more realistic. He should get over himself and sue for starring in crap like The Art Of War. Hell, he's got a producer credit in Blade: Trinity! There's no way he didn't know what was going on. Now he'll just look like a jackass.

    Blade 3 had good Action, good sidekicks, good music and the coolest Blade ever. But where is the story? I mean Blade 2 had 2 very nice story twists plus a this new vampire race. Blade 3 only had this retarded "Dracula". Nothing original and the worst ending (the bow scene).
    Snipes should just make a great Blade 4 and make every fan happy.
