Dread Central reports that Paul W.S. Anderson is no longer writing or directing Rogue Pictures’ Castlevania, the $50 million video game adaptation produced and co-financed by Crystal Sky Entertainment.
Anderson instead will be concentrating his efforts on developing the Death Race 3000, the remake of Death Race 2000, says the site.
Anderson’s Castlevania script spanned many time periods but mostly took place in 15th century Transylvania. It was a fresh take on the much-filmed Dracula legend, mining back to its genesis in the story of the Romanian prince Vlad the Impaler.
UPDATE: IGN reports that Anderson is still on board the project as writer and producer.
