Torture porn poster child, SAW
creator, James Wan, is apparently to get co-writing and directing duties on the forthcoming Castlevania
movie, if you believe what he says to Bloodydisgusting.com
Apparently the "East-meets-West tone" and the vampire killer whip are what drew Wan to the project.
He is, of course, "thrilled by the opportunity to make a highly stylized, fantasy, action film that focuses on the gothic storyline and the cool, anime-like characters."
Currently, IMDB has Sylvain White (I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer
) down in the director's chair. Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil
and Death Race
) and Ian Jeffers (Death Sentence
) will be joining Wan at the word processor.
Well, at least it's not Uwe Boll or Lars von Trier...
