Rumors of a Castlevania film have been swirling around for years. I know at one point there were talks of doing a Castlevania III animated adaptation. On the live-action front, Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson was on board, but those plans fell through as well — he probably couldn’t find a way to shoehorn Milla Jovovich into it.
Recently, the Nerdist Podcast welcomed special guest Michael Dorn, best known for playing Worf on Star Trek: The Next Generation. He revealed that a Castlevania movie is finally happening and that he has a small role: "They finally got the OK from the owners, and so they’re doing that. It’s a fun little part. It’s four days, and I’m playing a werewolf that’s been around for a gajillion years who works for this vampire. It’s not too far from Worf because there’s a lot of killing and jumping and sword fights and everything. So that’s what I’m doing now."
The only werewolf of any significance I can think of is Cornell from the N64′s Legacy of Darkness. I highly doubt whoever is in charge even remembers what the N64 was, so I’m guessing this is an original character. But considering how far the Castlevania cast extends, I feel very uncomfortable learning that the first announced character of the first Castlevania movie is neither Dracula nor a Belmont.
Oh well. Videogame movies. Whatcha gonna do?

According to [Bloomberg Japan] Capcom is in talks with Hollywood in order to try to make some of the cash that Marvel is/was seeing from it’s string of movie hits (like Spider man and Xmen). By making movies from titles like ‘Resident Evil’, ‘Devil May Cry’, and ‘Street Fighter’…
So who at Capcom is blind, and totally forgot that there’s already BEEN 3 Resident Evil movies, and at least 2 Street Fighter movies.. most of the movies pretty much bombed or where just ‘oh-hum’, and when (if ever) was the last time a GOOD movie was created based off a video game franchise? One that kept the feel, and the idea of the game in check, and not went off of some stupid idea the director got.. like Super Mario Brothers.. WTF was that?!
Just because the lead designer(s) are involved doesn’t mean the movie will be any good.. just look at Mortal Kombat (which I own..but only because of the goddess that is Talisa Soto (that’s Kitana.. Princess Kitana to you) )
Just look at the Doom movie. Really.. now HOW freaking hard must it have been to create a movie about demons rising from hell to take over a military base?!

[Contact Music.com] is reporting that Gore Verbinski, director for Pirates of the Caribbean has been signed to direct the new BioShock movie. The new agreement almost completely ensures the movie will be made, unlike the Halo movie.
Pre-production is likely to commence once John Logan, screenwriter of The Aviator, has completed a Bioshock script.
