7. Blade: Trinity
There are still some who think that the recent announcement of a Blade reboot should instead have been a return for original star Wesley Snipes. Given his behaviour on the set of the last Blade, though, that seems unlikely.
Snipes reserved his worst behaviour for David S. Goyer, writer of the first two parts and promoted to director here, at one point throttling him and later only communicating via post-it notes which he signed in-character.
His castmates did not go unaffected, however. Patton Oswalt, who played a supporting role in the movie, later recalled the frustration of Snipes constantly smoking weed and filming while high, refusing to appear for any shots that didn’t require his face in them, deferring instead to a body double, and never calling any castmates by name (Snipes only ever referred to female lead Jessica Biel as “the girl”).
Co-star Ryan Reynolds received the brunt of this behaviour, with Snipes dubbing him “that cracker” and constantly saying things like “tell that cracker to get his lines right.” The ever-competitive Reynolds responded by adlibbing huge amounts of new dialogue, much of which ended up being the most entertaining parts of the movie and significantly increased his screentime compared to the frequently absent Snipes.
Natasha Lyonne, who was in the midst of a downward spiral in her ongoing troubles with drugs, meanwhile used the fact that she was playing a blind hacker to get her own back by invading Snipes’s closely guarded personal space and touch him wherever she liked.
