According to the publication Deadline, screenwriter Derek Kolstad, who previously appeared in “John Wick”, will have a hand in the creation. Kolstad himself is familiar with the original source and really wanted to turn it into a film in the last few years.
The focus of the manga is Alucard (aka Dracula), who is a special agent of the secret organization Hellsing, run by Integra Hellsing, the great-granddaughter of the vampire hunter Abraham Van Hellsing. Alucard pledged to assist the organization in its mission to protect England and the rest of the world from a variety of supernatural spirits.
Derek himself, according to him, is a big fan of the original comic:
Ever since my brother introduced me to Hellsing manga and anime a few years ago, I’ve been obsessed with adapting them. And when Mike Callahan and his team managed to get the license and then partnered with Amazon.
I mean – damn it, man, dreams do come true!
