Castlevania movie is back on, Saw franchise co-creator set to co-write/direct

It’s on, it’s off, it’s on again, it’s off…and now it’s back on! The Castlevania movie lives once again, and this time James Wan is involved. Mr. Wan is one of the men that created the Saw franchise, and now he’s looking to co-write/direct the Castlevania feature film. He’s already got a piece of promo art, and according to his statement, it sounds like he knows his Castlevania lore!

“I’m very fresh on this project, so its early stages and I’m still trying to work things out, but the producers love my vision for it. I’ll be working on the script with a writer to give it a new spin, different to the previous versions. This will have my stamp on it which Konami is very excited about. The thing I love about what Konami did with Castlevania, was taking the iconic Dracula mythology and Eastern-European setting, and retelling it with a Japanese pop-cultural sensibility. That’s the East-meets-West tone I want to visually expand on for the film. I’m thrilled by the opportunity to make a highly stylized, fantasy, action film that focuses on the gothic storyline and the cool, anime-like characters. For once, the human hero is as sexy and dangerous as the vampire villain, and his weapon of choice was what attracted me to the project in the first place – The Vampire Killer Whip.” - James Wan

Huge thanks to PezmanMike for the heads up!
