It would seem that Hellsing is prepared to become inspired once more, and the series will focus on a live-action return. As indicated by a new report from Deadline, Derek Kolstad of John Wick is working with Amazon Studios to adapt the hit horror manga.
The pair are attempting to transform the manga into a live-action highlight film instead of a TV series. Kolstad rushed to comment on the report once it went live.
It was there the John Wick screenwriter shared his love for the manga, and it turns out he’s been a fan of Hellsing for quite a long time.
“Ever since my brother introduced me to the Hellsing manga and anime some years ago, I’ve been obsessed with adapting it,” Kolstad said in a new statement. “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 a dream.”
“I’ve always loved the vampire genre, especially when a creator is able to put their own unique spin on it, so when Derek introduced me to Alucard and the Hellsing Organization, I knew we had something special in that tradition,” Callaghan shared. “Kouta Hirano’s gonzo reimagining of the Dracula-Van Helsing mythology is an exhilarating, quirky mashup of action and horror that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. We are incredibly excited to partner with Brian and Fred at Automatik and that Amazon is on board to help us bring the wit and madness of ‘Hellsing’ to life on screen.”
On the off chance that you are inexperienced with Hellsing, the manga was created by Kouta Hirano back in 1997. The horror series is currently seen as an example of the class, and its interpretation of the otherworldly has charmed ages of fans. Hellsing reconsiders Dracula as a specialist named Alucard who works for The Hellsing Organization. The group works under Abraham Van Hellsing’s line, and it intends to shield all of England from powerful dangers. Yet, when a newcomer named Seras Victoria enters the quarrel, things get wild for Alucard and his group.
