Wesley Snipes' hit movie franchise BLADE is set to be made into a TV series.

US cable network SPIKE TV has ordered a two-hour movie based on the MARVEL COMICS antihero.

The 1998 film, starring Snipes as a half-man/half-vampire, spawned two sequels and generated a combined $400 million (GBP210 million) worldwide in revenue.

The movie will air next year (06) and will serve as a pilot for a possible series.
