Castlevania Gears Up Pre-Strike

Paul W.S. Anderson, who will be producing the film adaptation of the popular video-game series Castlevania, told SCI FI Wire that he's working hard to get the film into production before the anticipated writer's strike.

"[I'm] hoping to get a script for it in two or three weeks," Anderson said on the Montreal set of his current film, Death Race, last week. "And I'm hoping it's great. Sylvain White is directing it, and we're hoping to kind of make it a pre-strike movie. So it kind of shoots in the next couple months."

The Castlevania games, from Japanese game developer Konami, center on the members of the Belmont family who are fighting Dracula and other fictional and mythological creatures. The original game was released in Japan in 1986 and has since spawned dozens of sequel titles on several different console, hand-held and mobile platforms.

In a separate interview on the set of Death Race, producer Jeremy Bolt confirmed that the film is in preproduction for Rogue Pictures, with an intended start date this spring. He added that casting is already underway, but none of the main roles has been cast at this time. (Rogue Pictures is owned by NBC Universal, which also owns SCIFI.COM.) —Cindy White
