Castlevania to the Big Screen

Dracula rises again.

by Paul Davidson

November 8, 2005 - The long-lived Castlevania videogame series is at last coming to the movie theater. Sci Fi Wire and Variety report that Crystal Sky Pictures has struck a deal with Dimension Films and Konami, the Japanese game developer. Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil, Alien vs Predator) is confirmed as their pick to adapt and direct the vampire film.

Castlevania, which often goes by the name Demon Castle Dracula in Japan, is a highly successful franchise of side-scrolling console games that goes back to the Famicom and the original Nintendo. The plots of the various games are supposed to fit into the timeline of Bram Stoker's Dracula, and follow the exploits of the Belmont family through the ages in defeating the vampire Dracula after each of his many resurrections. These adventures typically involve fighting other monsters and mythological beasts and solving puzzles before Dracula himself is confronted.

The Castlevania project is still in its very early stages. We'll let our readers know as more develops.

People will see this and say "All it is is another Van Helsing." And that is not a good thing.


I may have to scream if this turns out to be just like that horrible movie.
