Castlevania movie is now back on, with Saw director

This news comes after the Castlevania movie that was going to be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson was recently canceled

Bloody-Disgusting reports that a film adaptation of Konami's vampire-whipping Castlevania video game series is back on. This news comes after the Castlevania movie that was going to be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Event Horizon, Alien vs. Predator) was recently canceled.

Now, the writer and director of the original grisly SAW horror film, James Wan, will both write and direct the Castlevania adaptation.

"The thing I love about what Konami did with Castlevania, was taking the iconic Dracula mythology and Eastern-European setting, and retelling it with a Japanese pop-cultural sensibility...That's the East-meets-West tone I want to visually expand on for the film. I'm thrilled by the opportunity to make a highly stylized, fantasy, action film that focuses on the gothic storyline and the cool, anime-like characters."

-James Wan

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
