Where has Wesley Snipes been for the past few years? With the exception of the upcoming Antoine Fuqua film Brooklyn’s Finest, he’s been M.I.A. from the movie scene. His last big budget project was the third and hopefully final installment of the Blade franchise, and that’s about it. According to Variety, director Abel Ferrara is reuniting with his King of New York star for another project entitled, Game of Death.
Game of Death will be an action thriller with Snipes starring as a politician’s bodyguard who must fend off five of the world’s top assassins. Zoe Bell and Robert Davi are set to co-star in the film, which will be based on a script by James Agnew. If the title of the film sounds familiar it’s because there’s another movie by the same name that already has a place in cinematic history. I’m referring to the 1978 Bruce Lee classic, that was directed by Robert Clouse.
Snipes and company will start shooting the film this week in Detroit. I hope this Game of Death will require Zoe Bell to be an ass kicking assassin. It would be amazing to see her go toe to toe with Wesley or anyone else who gets in her way. She’s the real deal!
