    Castlevania get's Derailed for a while

    Director Paul W.S. Anderson recently told IGN not to expect the Castlevania movie anytime soon, saying that the sale of Rogue Pictures to Relativity Media, along with last fall's Writers Guild strike and the possibility of a Screen Actors Guild strike, have "derailed" the project indefinitely.

    "We still want to make the movie, but I can't say we're going into production in January or anything like that. It's a project that everybody likes. I love the videogame. I think the script is really strong. Everyone is really enthusiastic about it, but we're still in the process of deciding when the movie gets shot," Anderson explained.

    "This year has been unbelievably chaotic for the film industry with the writers strike followed by the perpetual threat of a SAG strike. It's one thing if you're making a huge movie where you have $200 million and you say, 'Oh, [expletive] it. There's a SAG strike. We'll just wait.' For other movies it's very difficult to go into production if there's a threat that you'll have to close down. Not many movies can afford to take the hit of putting the cast and crew on hiatus for months while the strikes gets resolved. So I think in terms of anything we're developing there won't be any sort of priority until the SAG strike is resolved."

    Thank God. I really want to see a good Castlevania movie, but Anderson was going to make a crappy one. From all the script reviews I read online he was basically turning it into Dracula. It was gonna have very little to do with the games. Hopefully with this they'll scrap the crappy ideas all together.

    Never knew something like this was in production. Great idea, I guess it's oh well to that. All videogame based movies fail. If they go through they are dumb. Take hitman as an example.

    Can't believe they were going to let that hack Paul WS Anderson direct this movie.

    Should have given it to Uwe Boll. Oh well atleast it's not going to be made by someone who is only going to make it an awful movie.
