Securing one more great deal, Rogue Pictures has obtained distribution rights to action/horror flick "Castlevania" for North America and the U.K regions as well as for Spain and German-speaking territories with Crystal Sky handling sales for the rest of the world, Variety has learned.
Based on Konami's long-running game franchise of the same name, the project tells about the clash between Dracula and the vampire-hunting Belmont family which has spanned for centuries. It is revealed, however, that the film will mostly take place in 15th century Transylvania.
Production is targeted to start next spring with Paul W.S. Anderson directing and producing as well as penning the script. The Newcastle-upon-Tyne-born filmmaker is currently scouting locations in Hungary and Romania alongside his producing partner Jeremy Bolt.
