A Nail Hammered Into ‘Castlevania’s’ Coffin

Sources close to Bloody-Disgusting have confirmed that Paul W.S. Anderson’s Castlevania adaptation has officially turned to dust. The project, originally announced with Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer) attached to direct, had recently went out to new directors only to take a trip into the abyss of “development hell.” Simon Belmont, it was nice knowing ya. The pic was to focus on the origins of Dracula and the uprising of the Belmont Clan, a vampire-slaying family who supposedly become humanity’s last hope. Ian Jeffers had been penning the screenplay alongside Anderson. We’ll keep you posted if any fresh news arises, until then back to the control pad.
