Snipes, who starred as villainous drug dealer, Nino Brown in the 1991 film, has shut down any possible involvement with the announced remake of the classic film.

“I’m not associated with it, you know. I’m having nothing to do with it at all. I think some things should be left alone”. Snipes stated when asked if he was going to reprise the role of Nino Brown.

He continued, “I don’t particularly like the idea of recreating drug culture. They actually talked to me about doing it and I told them no. If I had a dime for every time I’ve said no… It’s a done deal, it’s a wrap.”
