‘Blade 2’ swings into busy Prague

Vampire actioner follows 'Bourne,' 'Hart's' to shoot in city

PRAGUE — The city got another heavy dose of testosterone Monday with the arrival of Wesley Snipes and the first day of shooting on “Blade 2.”

The New Line Cinema production will be the first U.S. actioner to shoot entirely on Prague soundstages and on location in the Czech Republic.

Helmed by Guillermo del Toro, “Blade 2” caps a winter of men-and-guns movies in Prague, following “The Bourne Identity,” with Matt Damon, and “Hart’s War,” with Bruce Willis.

Snipes produces with Peter Frankfurt and Victor McGauley. Patrick Palmer is exec producer.
