Castlevania Is As Dead As Dracula

Castlevania Is As Dead As Dracula

The Paul W.S. Anderson Big Screen adaption of the blockbuster 80's Castlevania video game and later turned into a Comic Book in the 90's is not going to be incinerated by daylight anytime soon.

Word is from around the block that Castlevania once to be written by Paul W.S. Anderson has officially bit the dust. Jonathan Frakes was originally signed to star as Simon Belmont in a tale of Dracula's origins and how The Belmont Clan came to be one of humanity's last stand for survival against Dracula's blood thirsty legions. Sylvain White was attached to direct. But no more. Castlevania has been stuck in development hell for the last two years. Bye Bye Belmont.

I am glad that we wont be seeing Jonathan Frakes as Simon Belmont, there are so many other actors that deserve a shot at that role. If done right this would be a kick ass movie. As long as the studios kept all the cheese out of there. I really enjoyed playing the original Castlevania game when I was a kid. If this property ever gets revisited the studio should try and capture the essence of the video game and incorporate that into the movie. Hire a young lead to play Simon Belmont, not someone who is older like Frakes. Oh well, maybe we will never know how Castlevania could have turned out.
