Default Castlevania Movie in 2009

No idea if anybody else here already knew about the upcoming Castlevania movie. I was just reading about it in wikipedia.

It'll presumably be released in 2009. The script was written by Paul W. S. Anderson (Resident Evil, Event Horizon, Alien vs. Predator). He was also planned as the director of this movie, but he left the post. Sylvain White (I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, Stomp the Yard) is the new director of this movie. The scenery is taking place in south africa and, of course, the creepy romania. Just click at the picture below for more detailed information.


I'm looking forward to this movie and hope it'll get a good and cinematic soundtrack. Maybe with orchestrations of Bloody Tears and Vampire Killer. Would be very lovely.

This is gonna be sooooo bad, Not only is it scripted by a guy who completely rapes game franchises of their signature mood and settings, but looking at other recent game movies, such as Chun Li and DoA, i lost all my faith in these kinds of adaptations

The Castlevania Animated Movie written by Warren Ellis however, now that's sounds like a good deal

There hasn't been a good video game adaptation for such a long time, mainly because they tackle on a whole new script that gamers aren't even familiar with and it completely ruins what the game is all about. First Mortal Kombat adaptation wasn't so bad though. Resident Evil really made me disappointed after I saw it >.< I can't forgive how bad those were. First one was actually decent but after that it went to downhill.

At least this isn't a movie Uwe Boll is directing for once. Now his movies are just plain AWFUL.
