Netflix raises a new animated series – “Castlevania”
Netflix has announced, very clandestinely we might add, that a live-action adaptation of the infamous Castlevania franchise is in the works.
Acclaimed writer Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, Iron Man) has signed on to write at least the first season. Nothing other that is really known except a live-action adaptation of Castlevania has been in an out of the pipeline for a hot minute.
An animated screenplay for a film entitled Castlevania: Dracula’s Curse got it start in 2006, later evolving into a collaboration between 51 Productions and Frederator — the company that currently owns the rights to Castlevania.
I guess now it this has been confirmed.
The animated series is set to debut later this year, so while you game heads won’t be getting your Dracula on, we’re sure this is pretty much the next best thing. May have to update this #TAP10 list.
