Castlevania movie is now back on, with Saw director

This news comes after the Castlevania movie that was going to be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson was recently canceled

Bloody-Disgusting reports that a film adaptation of Konami's vampire-whipping Castlevania video game series is back on. This news comes after the Castlevania movie that was going to be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Event Horizon, Alien vs. Predator) was recently canceled.

Now, the writer and director of the original grisly SAW horror film, James Wan, will both write and direct the Castlevania adaptation.

"The thing I love about what Konami did with Castlevania, was taking the iconic Dracula mythology and Eastern-European setting, and retelling it with a Japanese pop-cultural sensibility...That's the East-meets-West tone I want to visually expand on for the film. I'm thrilled by the opportunity to make a highly stylized, fantasy, action film that focuses on the gothic storyline and the cool, anime-like characters."

-James Wan

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
