Rest assured that, if there ever is a proper live-action Hellsing movie, it will be all over my blog faster than you can say “Jack Black would be awesome as the Major.”
Erin: Several people on the forums have been asking if there’s going to be a live-action Hellsing movie. The answer is no. But the rumor has been around for a while.
It started with this clip, which was first posted on YouTube a little over a year ago. This isn’t an official trailer. It’s a teaser put together by a small local film company using a model they found on Craigslist. The company was hoping to use the teaser as part of a pitch, to acquire the rights to produce a movie at all.
To make a long story short: they never got the rights. Ergo, no film. Of course, given how much fans already argue over the TV anime versus the manga versus the OVAs…do we really need a movie thrown into the mix?
Not that you readers would fight about something so silly. The definitive version of Hellsing is obviously Shine.
