Castlevania movie to begin production soon

Film producer, Paul W.S. Anderson told today that he hopes to have the script for the upcoming video game adaption of Castlevania done before the writer’s strike in a couple weeks.

"[I’m] hoping to get a script for it in two or three weeks," Anderson stated. "And I’m hoping it’s great. Sylvain White is directing it, and we’re hoping to kind of make it a pre-strike movie. So it kind of shoots in the next couple months."

Developed by Konami, Castlevania is one of the longest going game franchises in the industry. With over 25 titles in the series, there should be plenty of history and characters for the film writers to make a decent movie adaptation.

Movie producer, Jeremy Bolt has also confirmed that the film is in pre-production for Rogue Pictures, with an intended start date this spring. He added that casting is already underway, but none of the main roles has been cast at this time.
