The movie adaptation of Castlevania has been “worked” on for many years, with multiple scripts and directors attached. Now it appears that James Wan, co-creator of the Saw franchise and director of Dead Silence, will get his proverbial stab at the project. In a recent interview with bloody-disgusting.com, he had the following to say:
“I’m very fresh on this project, so its early stages and I’m still trying to work things out, but the producers love my vision for it. I’ll be working on the script with a writer to give it a new spin, different to the previous versions. This will have my stamp on it which Konami is very excited about.”
Now we all know that videogame movies usually end up being giant pieces of shit, so more than likely this will end the same way. I just really wish it didn’t. The concept art is promising though.
