Wan-tastic! Australian film-maker James Wan has been named as co-writer and director on the long awaited 'Castlevania' adaptation project. The movie, based on the Konami developed franchise of the same name, had Sylvain White ('I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer') originally set to direct.

Wan, whose probably known best for co-creating the ever popular 'Saw' franchise, has had a quiet time of late as it's been nearly 3 years since his last two directorial projects 'Dead Silence' and 'Death Sentence' were in production.

Here's what Wan had to say on his new duties:

"I'm very fresh on this project, so its early stages and I'm still trying to work things out, but the producers love my vision for it," Wan tells Bloody-Disgusting. "I'll be working on the script with a writer to give it a new spin, different to the previous versions. This will have my stamp on it which Konami is very excited about.

"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," he continues. "Thatís the East-meets-West tone I want to visually expand on for the film. Iím thrilled by the opportunity to make a highly stylized, fantasy, action film that focuses on the gothic storyline and the cool, anime-like characters. For once, the human hero is as sexy and dangerous as the vampire villain, and his weapon of choice was what attracted me to the project in the first place Ė The Vampire Killer Whip.Ē
