Today in classic video game adaptation news: Saw director to helm Castlevania movie

Variety reports that Saw director James Wan is in final negotiations to direct the feature-film adaptation of the eighties arcade classic Castlevania, a game involving vampires and Dracula and bogeymen of various sorts. The film will be produced by prolific shit merchant Steven Paul, a tireless schlockmeister whose credits include Baby Geniuses, Bratz: The Movie and Slapstick. Castlevania lends itself to film a lot more than most video-game properties though only masochists are liable to be excited about Wan and Paul's participation in the project.
