Production is expected to begin Monday in Vancouver on Blade, the live-action pilot movie for Spike TV from New Line Television.

Kirk "Sticky" Jones, recently of FX's Over There, has signed to star as Blade. David Goyer, who wrote all three Blade movies and directed Blade: Trinity, will serve as executive producer and co-wrote the film with Geoff Johns.

Peter O'Fallon, whose credits include Suicide Kings, Eureka and American Gothic, is set to direct.

The cast also includes Jill Wagner, Neil Jackson, Nelson Lee and Jessica Gower.

"Blade, as envisioned by David Goyer, is perfectly suited for Spike TV and its male viewers," said Pancho Mansfield, Executive Vice President, Original Programming at Spike TV. "Consistent with Goyer's feature film work, the new Blade promises to capture what men want to see: thrilling action and effects combined with an intelligent and highly creative story."

Jones first became widely known as "Sticky Fingaz," the front man for the hip-hop group Onyx. He later appeared in several feature films, including Clockers, Dead Presidents and Flight of the Phoenix. Most recently, Jones appeared regularly on FX's Over There and The Shield.

Here's how Spike TV describes the film:

"Spike TV's Blade focuses on Marvel's eponymous immortal warrior fighting a shadowy underworld of vampires who want to destroy the human race. The title character is a half-man, half-vampire who uses his incredible powers and skills to fearlessly battle the demonic creatures of the night in a blood-drenched crusade to prevent the ascendance of vampires over mankind."

Marvel's Avi Arad and Ari Arad will serve as executive producers. Blade is targeted for a June broadcast.

Viper Comics will kick off the second volume of its The Middleman in January by selling the first issue for 99 cents.

The book was created by Javier Grillo-Marxuach, a writer and supervising producer on ABC's Lost, and Les McClaine.

"We wanted to give readers who missed out on the first series an opportunity to preview the Middle Man at a more than reasonable price. You can't beat it for 99 cents," said Viper Publisher Jessie Garza.

Here's how the book is described:

"Wendy Watson thought she had it tough as a struggling young artist working a string of meaningless McJobs...until she was recruited into the world's most ludicrously secret organization. In Vol. II the theft of the world's rarest diamond by masked wrestlers is only the beginning of a world of trouble for the Middle Man and Wendy."

Also in January, Viper will be releasing the trade paperback of Middle Man Vol. I, with an introduction by Paul Dini, a pin-up gallery and more.
