Despite recent rumors to the contrary, genre filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson tells IGN that he is still very much involved with the planned movie version of the classic videogame Castlevania.
Reports surfaced online earlier this week that Anderson was making Death Race next, and the assumption was widely made that this meant he was off of Castlevania, casting doubt on the project's future. But Anderson indicates that reports of the film's demise, and his linkage to it, are greatly exaggerated.
"Both Death Race and Castlevania are set up at Universal," Anderson explains. "The studio wants to make both films, but obviously there is a scheduling conflict which we are trying to resolve. I am very passionate about Castlevania and whatever happens I will remain actively involved in my role as writer and producer." So, that settles that.
