It’s crazy that any of the stories that Patton Oswalt tells about Wesley Snipes during the filming of Blade:Trinity would be real, but unfortunately I can see the guy being this much of a male diva. Apparently it goes that Snipes was on edge the entire time if he wasn’t smoking weed and not coming out of his trailer. It’s also apparent that Snipes wasn’t needed all the much since he had a body double do all of the work for anything that wasn’t a closeup. I’m starting to wonder just why they even bothered to keep Snipes for this movie since it would seem that aside from the closeup shots he really wasn’t needed. I think it’s safe to say his reputation was well on the way to being tarnished and rusted by the time this film was in production. That or the first two films left him with such a big head that he thought he was at the top of the mountain. Someone should have reminded him about something called a foothill.
He even went so far as to choke the director, David Goyer, which prompted Goyer into talking to a biker gang about being his security on the set for a day. It seems like this freaked Snipes out and he retreated to his trailer. Later on he would ask Goyer why didn’t just quit since he was being detrimental to the movie. Goyer fired back with asking him why he was still there since they’d shot all his scenes and his body double could handle the rest. From that point on Snipes was in his trailer...
