Stephen Dorff has said that he hopes to star in a spinoff film to Blade.

The actor played villain vampire Deacon Frost in the 1999 Blade movie. Speaking to fan blog Dark Lord Bunnykins, Dorff detailed his and Blade director Stephen Norrington's vision for a Deacon Frost movie.

"Me and Steve Norrington had a cool treatment for that, and when vampires got all this trending again, we thought we should do the adult version, more of like a Scarface Deacon Frost movie," the Somewhere star said.

He added: "Blade was such a ‘90s thing. I didn’t want to do a Blade movie, I just really wanted to take Deacon and then do a whole other thing which was much more today."

Last year, reports surfaced that Dorff would reprise his role as Frost in a prequel trilogy focused on his character.

The actor also said that he and Norrington might take the idea and make a film with a new character instead of basing it on the Blade franchise, because New Line owns the rights to Blade.

Dorff added that Norrington is "someone I really like and would love to work with again".
