Paul Anderson off Castlevania Adaptation: Would Milla Jovavich have been Sonia Belmont?

I'm reading this morning that Paul Anderson (Resident Evil, Event Horizon) is no longer attached to direct the video game to movie adaptation of Castlevania.

This is great news to me - as much as I would have loved to see how he would have written in Milla Jovavich, I just can't bare to watch as one of the best games ever was hacked to death on screen in some odd-ball b-movie Dracula rip-off.... reports: "Anderson's Castlevania script spanned many time periods but mostly took place in 15th century Transylvania. It was a fresh take on the much-filmed Dracula legend, mining back to its genesis in the story of the Romanian prince Vlad the Impaler."

I'd rather see this project die completely like Halo, than to see it done incorrectly. This game series would only benefit from high production values and top notch writing... otherwise what is the point?

Still, my mind wanders back to Milla... would Anderson have gotten rid of Simon Belmont and replaced him with an ass kicking female vampire hunter? lists a "Sonia Belmot" character and no Simon...

I gotta admit on some level I enjoy his Resident Evil series - they're great 80's style b-movie zombie flicks... but I credit this to Milla 100%.

I could watch her just make toast for 2 hours.
