It looks like the movie version of Castlevania, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (of Aliens vs. Predator infamy), has been put on hold indefinitely. With luck that means this dog will never see the light of day, but bad movies have a way of completing themselves in spite of all odds.
What this means for other pending video game adaptations is debatable, but I doubt the cancellation of one beleaguered project headed by an unsuccessful director is indicative of the state of the video game movie industry. I’m still hoping I get awarded the rights to the Twinkle Star Sprites adaptation.
