Production company ready to whore out Castlevania


According to GameDaily Biz, production company Project 51 has snatched up the animation rights to the Castlevania series. And what's already in the works? The company plans on developing DVD movies, a TV series, and a theatrical release.

But, before you dismiss this as some half-assed effort to cash in on a storied video game franchise, Project 51 is planning to work with Konami's Koji Igarashi to keep things all good in the vampire hood.

The company says: "Castlevania has horror and action, but at its core is a great story about a family that has fought against Dracula for hundreds of years. We want to be true to the characters and stories that [the fans] enjoy, but we want to bring people beyond the game fans to it."

For those unaware, Crystal Sky Pictures got the movie rights for Castlevania last year and Paul W.S. Anderson has already been announced as director and writer for the picture which is scheduled for release next year.
