    I think this will end up being cheesey as heck, and probably end up as a guilty pleasure kind of movie because of that.

    Bigger fans of Castlevania then me are hard to come by, so I am happy they are doing a Castlevania since it has the chance of being better then the majority of vampire movies out there, and even most are at least entertaining to watch in a guilty pleasure/cheesy way. With that little bit of info on the story though, it sounds like it is straying away from the formula. I would imagine it hard to just stumble into Draculas Castle, since basically when it pops up the land is plagued with the undead. I would really like to see this movie taken in the direction opposite of Transformers the movie: Not over the top action, but more a personal conflict between Mathius and Leon Belmont and how Leon was manipulated by him to allow Mathius to actually become Dracula. If not that, then maybe Simon having to resurrect Dracula to rid himself of the curse- or maybe a conflict of Alucard vs his father, though I see that more as a sequel.

    having an 'almost anime feel to it' is probably not going to be a good thing.

    Don't get me wrong, I think it's possible to take a number of positive aspects from anime and carry them over to live action film, but I think Ultra violet tried to have an ' almost anime feel' to it didn't it? or how about 'Aeon flux' ? I don't think either of those films was particularly great, so I can't see this being a great direction to take the film.

    As far as my aforementioned ideas go, I have no expectations considering it would take a talented writer to make those ideas into a great script and I am pretty sure nobody is willing to flip the bill for that.

    Darn, I was hoping for a Lament of Innocence movie, as in how Mathias become Dracula, or at least a Simon Belmont movie.

    On the bright side, theres always that animated thing that Warren Ellis and IGA are working on if this ends up being balls.
