David S. Goyer To Tackle Live-Action HELLSING

We have exclusive details about the project from Solar Eclipse Films as they prepare to tackle the Japanese manga series from Kouta Hirano. Continue on to find out who's playing Alucard, Integra and Father Anderson

Scoops Opinion

UPDATE: By now, must of you should know that Goyer IS NOT directing this film. What was propositioned to me as Goyer simply agreeing to help out a friend with his fan film has turned out to be a complete fabrication. An image that was sent to me by Ahmad's associate that was meant to convince me to take this seriously [see below] has turned out to merely be Goyer chatting with a 'fan' as he called it, at a premiere party for Black Ops II. Goyer has no idea who Ahmad is nor was he in any way aware of the project. Ahmad has now lied about being cast as 'Thoros of Myr' in Game of Thrones, 'Michael Morbius' in Marc Webb's Amazing Spider-Man sequel and now about this elaborate fan film adaptation for Hellsing. What's disappointing is the fact that Ahmad and his associates felt the need to concoct this elaborate hoax; CBM supports many fan film endeavors here that don't have any big names attached. Unfortunately, with the popularity of the comic book and geek genre, you get some bad stuff like this mixed in with the good. In the future, treat any similar announcements from Ahmad and his lackeys as trivial bunk.

Goyer is not directing Hellsing. Ahmad met Goyer at a Black Ops II premiere party and approached him for a photo as a fan.

For many American anime fans, after a likely introduction to the genre from series such as Dragon Ball Z, Bleach, Naruto and/or Sailor Moon, you stumble across the darker and more adult titles such as Hellsing. Hirano's 1997 manga series is ultra-violent and definitely not for the faint of heart. Probably best described as a mixture of Hellboy and Blade to unfamiliar genre enthusiasts, writer & director David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, Batman Begins, Godzilla) will be helming the independent adaptation which features a script from Asim Ahmad (rumored to be playing Michael Morbius in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel) who will also be portraying Alucard. Jake Sharp (All My Children) will be portraying Father Anderson, Daniel Bernhardt (Bloodsport 2, The Matrix Reloaded) will be portraying Walter and Swedish singer Ana Johnsson will be portraying Integra Hellsing. Expect some recognizable names from the action genre to cameo.

Filming will begin in early 2013 in London. A soundtrack will also accompany the film featuring music from Valhalla, Amerakin Overdose, Icarus Witch, and Microwaved with more musical acts currently in the process of signing. Ahmad, Sharp and Stefanie Levina are serving as co-producers on the feature.

You can follow on Twitter @Hellsing_Movie to keep track of the production.

Asim Ahmad wrote the feature and will also star as Alucard.

Jake Sharp will portray Alucard antagonist, Father Anderson.

Swedish singer Ana Johnsson will portray Van Helsing descendant, Integra Hellsing.

Action movie veteran Daniel Bernhardt will portray Walter C. Dornez aka the Angel of Death.

Hellsing (ヘルシング Herushingu?) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kouta Hirano. It first premiered in Young King Ours in 1997 and ended in September 2008. Hellsing is named after and centered around the Holy Order of Protestant Knights, originally led by Abraham Van Helsing. The mission of Hellsing is to search and destroy those that threaten the safety of the Queen and Country from the undead and other supernatural forces of evil. This organization is currently led by Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing, a direct descendant of Van Hellsing. She is protected by the faithful Hellsing family butler, Walter C. Dornez, and Alucard, the original and most powerful vampire that swore loyalty to the Hellsing family after being defeated by Van Helsing 100 yrs prior to the story. When a remnant-Nazi group called Millennium reveal intentions of reviving the Third Reich as a battalion of undead vampires, Millennium, Hellsing, and Iscariot (a top secret wing of the Vatican) clash in an apocalyptic three-sided war in London.
