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

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
