A few years ago in 2007 we almost got a Castlevania movie. How cool would that have been? Unfortunately due to the writers strike of Hollywood at the time it and many other projects like a Justice League live action movie were cancelled.
Paul WA Anderson better known as the man behind The Resident Evil movies was to direct. Love or hate those movies, he is abetter than Uwe Bol. Now the movie is back on and currently in preparation production . …..what ever that may mean is up in the air.

Before we see this Castlevania movie we may get a super violent animated series. As a fan of the franchise for the longest time, I could not be more happy.
Adi Shankar executive producer of Dredd, Machine Gun Preacher, The Grey, and Broken City, has announced that he will be producing a “super violent” mini-series based upon the 1989 NES game Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse. Furthermore, this series will be animated by Frederator, the team behind Fairly Odd Parents and Adventure Time, and will be influenced by titles such as Akira, Ghost In The Shell, and Ninja Scroll.
Shankar announced via his Facebook page:
I’m producing a super violent Castlevania mini-series with my homies Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde. It’s going to be dark, satirical, and after a decade of propaganda it will flip the vampire sub-genre on its head.
Collider caught up Shankar, who told them that, “There will be a [lots of gore]. The goal is to bring hard hitting anime to the America and be America’s first animated series for adults.
When it comes to the music, which is a rather iconic aspect of the original Castlevania games, Shankar explained:
The first thing I thought about was music and how we needed to avoid the traditional sword-and-sandal orchestra cliche and use the heavy metal electro guitar vibe found in the early games.
Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse is the prequel to the original Castlevania game. It follows Trevor Belmont as he aims to defeat Dracula with the help of Alucard and Syhpa Belnades.
