Wesley Snipes has filed a lawsuit seeking more than $5 million in damages from the makers of "Blade: Trinity," including New Line, writer-director David Goyer and exec producer Toby Emmerich. The suit claims the screenplay, director and co-stars in the pic were hired without Snipes' approval in violation of his contract. The film opened in December and pulled in a domestic gross of $52 million.
