BLADE: TRINITY Director Weighs In On Patton Oswalt's Claims Wesley Snipes Strangled Him On Set

Blade: Trinity director David S. Goyer has shared his take on Patton Oswalt's shocking comments that Wesley Snipes choked the filmmaker on set, but are we any closer to figuring out what really happened?

Blade: Trinity served as a terrible conclusion to the Vampire Hunter's big screen trilogy, but it's no secret that the production was a troubled one. 

Way back in 2012, Patton Oswalt claimed that lead star Wesley Snipes "tried to strangle the director, David Goyer." He added that the filmmaker then enlisted some bikers he met in a strip club to act as his security and when the actor saw them, he "freaked out and went back to his trailer." 

Oswalt even alleged that Snipes would only communicate with Goyer via Post-it notes after a disagreement over which of them should quit the project, and that he'd sign them "From Blade."

Last year, Snipes would deny those claims, arguing that "[people] are predisposed to believing the Black guy is always the problem," claiming that, if it was true, he'd have been arrested. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Goyer finally responded to these dualling accounts of what happened, but chose his words extremely carefully. 

"Let’s just say I have tremendous respect for Wesley as an actor. He used to be a friend. We’re not friends anymore. I am friends with Patton, and I worked with Patton since, so...I don’t think anyone involved in that film had a good experience on that film. Certainly, I didn’t. I don’t think anybody involved with that film is happy with the results. It was a very tortured production."

It feels like we may never know what really took place on the set of Blade: Trinity, but you can certainly read into Goyer's comments in a number of ways. Thankfully, the future of the franchise looks bright with Bassam Tariq set to take the helm of a reboot for Marvel Studios starring Mahershala Ali.
