While we were all busy chuckling over Uwe Boll‘s plan to release "Dungeon Siege" in two feature-length chapters, that "other" video game-centric director has been signing a few contracts, too. The short version is this: Paul W.S. Anderson is directing a "Castlevania" movie.

Says Variety: "Pic will focus on the origins of Dracula and the uprising of the Belmont Clan, a vampire-slaying family who supposedly become humanity’s last hope.

"Castlevania" was first released in 1986. The latest version, "Castlevania: Curse of Darkness," comes out Stateside on Nov. 8."

Paul W.S. Anderson is generally well-remembered for directing "Event Horizon." His other movies include "Resident Evil," "Alien vs. Predator," "Mortal Kombat," and "Soldier."
