As seemingly one of the few gaming properties not already optioned for a film, Gamespot reports that rights to a Castlevania film have been purchased
by Crystal Sky Pictures. From the article: "Paul W.S. Anderson will direct the film, after having game-to-movie experience with Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil. Steven Paul and Benedict Carver of Crystal Sky and Anderson and Jeremy Bolt of Impact Pictures will produce the movie. No cast has been announced, and production is set to start in mid-2006."
