Castlevania movie receives greenlight

Konami have granted rights for a Castlevania film to begin production, according to a well-known actor who is set to star in it.

Michael Dorn, most recognised as playing Lt. Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation, mentioned his involvement with the project during an interview with StarTrek.com.

Star Trek co-star Marina Sirtis, who played Commander Deanna Troi, was responsible for introducing him to the game-to-film adaptation.

“Castlevania is a movie that Marina got me involved with. It’s based on a video game,” Dorn explained.

“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.”
