Van Helsing getting a harder reboot? Alex Kurtzman says so!

A VAN HELSING reboot? Already?!

Such seems to be the case, according to writer and uber-producer Alex Kurtzman. You see, the man recently caught up with Crave Online and shed some shine regarding a new direction to be taken by the ultimate vampire hunter. Peep it...

Noting how a new version of VAN HELSING will be a harder take on the character, Kurtzman said this:

"Well, I don’t want to give away too much, because we are actually at the very beginning of talking about what to do with it. But I do feel like the Van Helsing that Anthony Hopkins plays in [Bram Stoker’s] Dracula is sort of the parody version of it, and the Van Helsing that Hugh Jackman played was obviously in a different place as well. I think that these kinds of movies have evolved a lot since then. You know, The Dark Knight was a major, major corner-turning moment in the way that genre and superhero stories could be told. Really grounded in reality. Really grounded in really cool things. That’s what I’d like to do without sacrificing the fantasy element. We aspired to do that as well on Trek, you know, keep it “real.” That’s such a different franchise than Batman, but that’s really what we wanted to do. And we’d love to do that with Van Helsing."

Sounds pretty f*ckin' cool to me. Honestly, with so many renditions of the character, the only way to successfully reboot the bastard is to go in a way that we haven't seen before. A brutal, hard-R version is the way to go right? Kurtzman knows what's up, let's just hope he uses his clout to get such a take green-lighted.

Your thoughts on the matter?
