Wesley Snipes would consider the opportunity to reprise his Blade role.

The incarcerated 49-year-old, who starred as the title character and produced the three films of the series, revealed he would be open to making another movie about the superhero vampire hunter.

"Getting asked this question all the time, my response is: 'Under the right circumstances, with the right team, yes, I'd do another one'," he told IGN UK.

"But don't get me wrong, I'm not waiting around for the opportunity. I've got plenty to do, plus an unravelled character in the works who I think will give Blade a helluva run for his money. It would be nice to fulfil some of the really cool plans we had for Blade, but didn't get the chance to go live with."

Wesley - who is currently serving time in jail for tax evasion - is already lining up work once he gets out, including futuristic sci-fi action adventure Omandi Mech 5 and a film based on his graphic novel After Dark.

"Truthfully, we have about five cross-platform, franchise-able products in different stages of development or production. Something for grown-ups, something for kids, and something for 'grown-up kids'. The martial arts get a look in all of them," he added.
