For several years, fans have been waiting for Simon Belmont, the 8-bit monster slayer from Castlevania to make it to the screen. And it looks like that may actually be happening. Maybe.
According to a recent interview on Startrek.com – Micheal Dorn (also known as Worf from The Next Generation) – stated he’s involved and? He’s a werewolf.
Dorn: Castlevania is a movie that Marina got me involved with. It’s based on a video game. People have been trying to get this thing done for a long time and they finally got the producers together that want to do it. They finally got the OK from the owners, and so they’re doing it. It’s a fun little part. It’s four days, and I’m playing a werewolf that’s been around for a gajillion years who works for this vampire. It’s not too far from Worf because there’s a lot of killing and jumping and sword fights and everything. So that’s what I’m doing now, and I just got offered another movie that would start at the end of September. I don’t know if that’s going to go, so I can’t discuss it now.
Sweet! Between Medusa, Frankenstein’s Monster, Dracula, and heart-shaped ammunition – this movie has success written all over it. Well… okay, again – maybe.
