"Castlevania" Details Begin to Emerge

by | November 4, 2006 | Comments

So get your complaining out of the way now: Paul W.S. Anderson is directing an adaptation of the video game "Castlevania" for Universal’s Rogue division. True, he directed "Alien vs. Predator," but he also did "Event Horizon." And that movie creeps me out.

From IGN Movies: "Rogue Pictures has hooked up with genre filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson and Crystal Sky Entertainment to help bring the classic videogame Castlevania to the big screen. Rogue, according to today’s Variety will distribute the $50 million film in North America. Dimension Films, who had been previously linked with the project, dropped the movie after they failed to warm up to Anderson’s script.

A number of new details have emerged about the "Resident Evil" and "Mortal Kombat" filmmaker’s approach to the project. Anderson’s script reportedly spans many time periods but mostly takes place in 15th century Transylvania. The movie is described as a fresh take on the Dracula legend, taking it back to the beginning with the story of Romanian prince Vlad the Impaler."
