Amazon Studios Is Making a Live-Action HELLSING Movie.
Fans of the HELLSING anime/manga are certain a treat as Amazon Studios is teaming up with Derek Kolstad (John Wick) for a live-action movie rendition.
HELLSING was created by Kouta Hirano and follows the powerful vampire Alucard (Dracula spelled backwards) as he protects the Hellsing family as they clash between a Nazi group called Millennium and therefore the Vatican section XIII Iscariot. Many powerful allies and foes (both undead and human) are met along the way during their prevention from all hell literally breaking loose.
Kolstad comments: “Ever since my brother introduced me to the Hellsing manga and anime some years ago, I’ve been hooked in to adapting it. And when Mike Callaghan and his team managed to secure the rights to then partner us up with Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Amazon, I mean -damn, dude- this is often a dream.” this is often not only exciting news for fans of the franchise but anime fans generally . Our prayers are answered, and as Alexander Anderson would say, “Amen.”
