Anderson Still Attached to "Castlevania"; New Line to Keep Freddy Dead (For Now)

by | March 29, 2007 | Comments

The Internets have been abuzz with talk of director Paul W.S. Anderson abandoning the upcoming "Castlevania" for "Death Race," but as Anderson himself tells IGN Movies, there’s a reason they’re called "rumors" and not "facts."

From IGN Movies:
"Both ‘Death Race’ and ‘Castlevania’ are set up at Universal…The studio wants to make both films, but obviously there is a scheduling conflict which we are trying to resolve. I am very passionate about ‘Castlevania’ and whatever happens I will remain actively involved in my role as writer and producer."

The movie is still a videogame adaptation, of course, so fans would be wise to temper any hopes for timeless cinema, but to Anderson’s credit, he seems intent on making "Castlevania" better than, say, "Super Mario Bros."; in an interview with Variety, he said "you could even call this movie ‘Dracula Begins.’"

In other rumor-busting news, Bloody Disgusting reports that Robert Englund — who has been talking up potential "Nightmare on Elm Street" sequels, prequels, and all other manner of -quels lately — may be a bit of a wishful thinker. According to sources at New Line, the studio is concentrating right now on a remake of the first "Friday the 13th," so it’ll be awhile before Englund’s meal ticket returns to the big screen.
