The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Castlevania animated series executive producer Adi Shankar is in talks to produce a TV series based on Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda franchise, according to a report from TheWrap.

In an Instagram post earlier today with the caption “The success of Castlevania created this opportunity,” Shankar said, “I can confirm that I’m working with an iconic Japanese gaming company to adapt one of their iconic video game series into a series. On November 16 at 1:00 p.m., I’m going to announce what it is. I love you all. Thank you for following me on this journey. Entertaining you guys continues to be a privilege.”

According to TheWrap’s report, that series is The Legend of Zelda.

When contacted for comment, a Nintendo representative said, “We have nothing to announce on this topic.”

Other than executive producer of Castlevania, Shankar’s recent credits include producer of the rap battle satire Bodied and executive producer of biographical war drama Lone Survivor. He also acted in, but was not involved in the production side of, comedy crime thriller Get the Girl.
