White stakes out ‘Castlevania’

Sylvain White has been set to direct “Castlevania,” a live-action adaptation of the Konami vampire videogame that’s co-produced by Rogue Pictures and Crystal Sky Entertainment. Film will shoot late fall in South Africa and Romania. Rogue, the genre arm of Universal-based Focus Features, will co-finance and distribute in late 2008. Deal was worth seven-figures for White, who has been in demand following the sleeper hit “Stomp the Yard.” While White has deals to develop “Static” at Columbia Pictures and the Frank Miller graphic novel “Ronin” at Warner Bros., “Castlevania” will be the next film he directs. Scripted by Paul W.S. Anderson (“Alien vs. Predator”), the drama begins as a Transylvanian knight leads his men into a gothic castle to seek refuge from the Turkish army. The knights soon discover the castle is controlled by the original vampire.
