Given that he’s directed movies like "Mortal Kombat," "Resident Evil," and "Alien vs. Predator," it’s not like video game fans were exactly clamoring for Paul W.S. Anderson to helm the big-screen version of the "Castlevania" video game, so here’s some potentially good news: He’s offically off the project.
Knowing Anderson, he’ll probably stay on as a producer, but according to Dread Central, it looks like the "Event Horizon" helmer will now set his sights in his remake of Roger Corman‘s "Death Race 2000."
No word yet on who, if anyone, will step in to cover the "Castlevania" project, but I’m sure there’s a young cinematographer out there who’d just love the gig.
