Castlevania gets director

PaulWSAnderson.jpgPaul W.S. Anderson is no longer to direct Castlevania. Hurrah, the world rejoices. Well not really considering that the source of the material is some age old video game that hardly boasted the fleshed out story of most game properties these days. Well a new Director has been announced, and they come bearing interesting ideas.

Sylvain White directed I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer and Stomp the Yard has been signed on to direct, and of the film he says the usual comment of I've played the game since I was young, etc, however the interesting comment comes from Variety through HorrorMovies.ca:

"Most of the vampire films have been present or set in the future, from 'Blade' to 'Underworld,' and I was attracted by the chance to make a dark, epic period movie that almost has an anime feel to it"

Now I do like the sound of that, although it is only a comment at the moment and the film is a long way off, it does sound rather interesting. A lot more than a blocky videogame with minimal plot.

The story for Castlevania sounds not too bad either, a story that both Paul W.S. Anderson and Sylvian White will be working on rewriting. A Transylvanian Knight and his men seek refuge in a deserted castle to hide from the Turkish army, unfortunately they soon discover it isn't so deserted and that the castle is controlled by the original owner, one Vlad the Impaler. Wooo.

Now really, that doesn't sound too bad does it? Then add on something in an anime style and it could actually be a lot better than expected.
