LetsOTT Editorial Team -
The creator behind the 'John Wick' universe, Derek Kolstad is all set to create a one of a kind live-action series on the Japanese horror action manga Hellsing for Amazon Prime. The fan favourite comics have been written and illustrated by Kouta Hirano and published by Shōnen Gahōsha. The story follows Dracula who has changed his identity to be Alucard as he becomes a special agent bound to The Hellsing Organization, under the leadership of Integra Hellsing, great-granddaughter of Abraham Van Hellsing, to aid them in their mission to protect England and the world from vampires, ghouls, and other supernatural threats. The manga also focuses on Hellsing’s newest recruit, a female ex-police officer named Seras Victoria.
The manga was introduced to Kolstad by his brother a few years ago and since then he wanted to adapt it for the screen. The series is being produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Fred Berger of Automatik, Mike Callaghan and Reuben Liber of Ranger 7 Films, Jason Lust of Soluble Fish Productions, and Kolstad.
