Does Netflix ever stop being awesome? Even for a second?
In a press release sent out today, Netflix revealed that “Castlevania” – Season 1, Part 1 is headed to the streaming service this year. You may remember that producer Adi Shankar (Dredd) recently teased that he was working on an animated adaptation of “one of the most world-famous video games of the last 30 years“; as we suspected, he was referring to Castlevania.
From Netflix’s press site…
Inspired by the classic video game series, “Castlevania” is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert, and Adi Shankar.
According to things Shankar has said in the recent past about the project, the animated series will be “super violent,” and is set to “flip the vampire sub-genre on its head.”
Yes please. To all of that.
