Konami is talking Contra reboot. There's no plan in place, but top men are thinking about making a new Contra. One of those top men, Dave Cox, the head of development at Konami EU. In a recent interview, Cox said Konami would like Castlevania developers MercurySteam to work on the reboot.
"I don’t want to be known as Mr Castlevania, and we don’t want the team to be known as the Castlevania team. Working in a creative industry, you’ve got other projects and other ideas you want to work on," Cox said. "And that’s something that we and Mercury Steam want to do. We want to work on other projects. We’ve got other ideas."

I love Contra. I’d love to do Contra. At Mercury Steam we’ve got an original idea that I think is really awesome. We’d love to bring that idea to market and I’m hoping that the success of Lords of Shadow 2 will allow us to do that.”
It's not as if Konami hasn't been thinking about the series for a while, now. Remember E3 2011? During Konami's press conference, the company showed off a Konami teaser trailer, but have been awfully quiet about the project since then.
