04.11.05 - Paul W.S. Anderson to direct Castlevania movie
Seems Anderson has his sights set on another game franchise. Not being a fan of castlevania I've got no comment, other than i'd be surprised if it was remotely anything like the games.
According to film news site Comingsoon, Crystal Sky Pictures recently bought the movie rights to Konami's classic Castlevania series. Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil, Alien vs. Predator) will adapt and direct the film, which is set to begin production in mid-2006. It will reportedly focus on the beginnings of Dracula and the Belmont clan (the family of vampire slayers from most of the games).
Now, I bet you're thinking, "Egad! What are they going to do to my beloved franchise?!" Well, I'll let you come to your own conclusion - take a look at this list of movies Anderson has directed (from IMDB.com):
# Deathrace 3000 (2006) (announced)
# Man with the Football (2006) (announced)
# AVP: Alien Vs. Predator (2004)
# Resident Evil (2002)
# The Sight (2000) (TV)
