John Wick’s Writer To Create Hellsing

Hellsing Receives Live-Action

By Epic Dope Staff | March 6, 2021

Derek Kolstad, the John Wick franchise creator, has turned his eyes to the manga industry, and guess which series has caught his eyes? Hellsing!

Derek Kolstad is collaborating with Amazon Studios to create the live-action feature film inspired by Hellsing, the vampire manga series by Kouta.

Hellsing is a very gory and violent series. John Wick is also bloody, and so Kolstad will be able to depict the heart of the series carefully.

The producers of the film also include Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger from Automatik.

Hellsing had been adapted into a 13-episode anime series in 2001, and an OVA series called Hellsing Ultimate.

Alucard is a vampire, but he hunts his own kind. Will the live-action do justice to the love of horror manga fans?
