The adaptation of ‘Castlevania’ from video game to movie may not be dead yet. Aaron Sims, the creature designer, recently spoke about the film. He said ‘Saw’s’ James Wan was still attached to direct, but the movie was on hold while Wan worked on Insidious.
“[Castlevania has] been trying to find the right financing for it,” he said. “It’s a big film with a giant fan base. They’re not going through a big studio so it’s about finding the right investors. James and I went to Romania and scouted locations.”
Sims also spoke about some of the creatures he’d designed for the movie. “There’s a Medusa and the vampires themselves had a unique quality to them that falls into James’ style.”
