CraveOnline spoke with director Alex Kurtzman and got the latest information about the Val Helsing reboot he has in mind.
Kurtzman mentions that the reboot is going to be a hard reboot so we can ignore the previous movie and when asked what is it that you think hasnít been done? Kurtzman commented, "Well, I donít 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 Stokerís] 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. Thatís what Iíd like to do without sacrificing the fantasy element. We aspired to do that as well on Trek, you know, keep it ďreal.Ē Thatís such a different franchise than Batman, but thatís really what we wanted to do. And weíd love to do that with Van Helsing."
