A "super violent" Castlevania animated series is in the works

From the producer of Dredd

On Tuesday, Dredd and Power/Rangers producer Adi Shankar announced on Facebook that he would be producing a "super violent" mini-series based on Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse with Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde. Fred Siebert is a big name in television (particularly animated television), but the only Google results for Kevin Klonde are people who wrote about this story before we did. (In fact, Google first searched for Kevin Kline, sure I'd make a mistake.)

"It’s going to be dark, satirical, and after a decade of propaganda it will flip the vampire sub-genre on its head," Shankar finished. Which sounds... interesting. I like Castlevania games for a lot of reasons, of which the overarching narrative is not one, but that doesn't mean I am not down for an ultraviolent animated adaptation of it. In a follow-up interview with Collider, Shankar said that he wants this to be the first American animated series for adults, proving that he's never seen Bojack Horseman

But half-jokes aside, this sounds legitimately interesting, and Adi Shankar has definitely demonstrated a love of "mature" adaptations of properties intended for both old and young audiences. Whatever this ends up being, I have no doubt it will be worth watching.
