More info from Paul Anderson (IGN article November 2nd) regarding the new movie. I'm biting my nails because this is either going to be very entertaining, or very screwed up. My two cents is that we're dealing with a LOT of picky old school fans that aren't going to go for this at all. Either way, SOME of this does look promising, and we can only hope right? :) Some key points to the article:
Rogue Pictures is producing it now, not Dimension films.
Is "in the same vein as Underworld and Blade", and wants to turn Castlevania into a FRANCHISE. Whoa boy!
Not a typical videogame movie, has a "romantic element to it". Spans in many time periods (cool) but begins the story with VLAD THE IMPALER. That's great- it's historical, but has NOTHING to do with the game history in regards to Drac's origins. Just. Freakin. Great. :evil:
Locations are scouted in Romania and Hungary, and they'll be building the castle set in Budapest.
