The announcement of Paul W.S. Anderson’s departure from Rogue Pictures’ Castlevania video game adaptation came a little premature the other day, as apparently the writer/director hasn’t officially left the project… yet (we can still cross our fingers). Inside you can read Anderson’s official comments on the issue, not that we care either way. We just want him gone.
Paul W.S. Anderson tells IGN exclusively, “Both Death Race and Castlevania are set up at Universal,” Anderson explains. “The studio wants to make both films, but obviously there is a scheduling conflict which we are trying to resolve. I am very passionate about Castlevania and whatever happens I will remain actively involved in my role as writer and producer.”
That was the shortest celebration EVER.
Anderson’s script will focus on the origins of Dracula and the uprising of the Belmont Clan, a vampire-slaying family who supposedly become humanity’s last hope.
