Director Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard) has signed a seven-figure deal to direct a big-screen adaptation of the popular video game series Castlevania. The film was originally under development with Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil, AVP: Alien vs. Predator) attached to write and direct. Anderson will instead direct a remake of Death Race 2000, but he remains attached as the writer. He and White are expected to rewrite the script together. White grew up playing the Castlevania series. "Most of the vampire films have been present or set in the future, from 'Blade' to 'Underworld,' and I was attracted by the chance to make a dark, epic period movie that almost has an anime feel to it," White said. Rogue Pictures will co-finance the film and distribute it. The theatrical release is projected for late 2008.
