Director of MIMIC, Guillermo del Toro is set to helm BLADE 2: BLOOD HUNT, the sequel to the hit 1998 horror film starring Wesley Snipes and Kris Kristofferson. The film will go in front of cameras this fall. Potentially, the film could see a summer 2001 release date. Snipes is back in the title role, and Kristofferson will come back as his mentor -- even though he seemingly died in the first film. Based on the Marvel Comics hero who's part man and part vampire, Blade hunts down the walking dead as they try to liquidate the human race. David Goyer, who scripted the original, has written the redux. Beside MIMIC, Del Toro will direct the cult-favorite, horror flick CRONO. Currently, he is also developing HELLBOY at Universal, and an adaptation of the Japanese cult comic DOMU at Disney.
