M-Rated Castlevania Animated Series Coming to Netflix
An "R-rated as fuck" animated Castlevania series will be coming to Netflix later this year.
Hollywood wunderkind Adi Shankar (The Grey; Dredd; A Walk Among the Tombstones) will be executive producing, with Adventure Time's Fred Seibert and his Frderator Studios handling the animation and veteran comic scribe Warren Ellis penning the first season.
The first season will be based on Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, which is the first of many (many, many) encounters between the Belmont clan and Count Dracula.
As we all know, there have been a lot of film and TV adaptations of video games, and very few good ones. But Seibert & Ellis working on an adult-oriented series sounds like a great pairing, so we can hold out hope this bucks the trend.
