Originally looking to adapt “Castlevania” (years ago), Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Afterlife and Resident Evil: Retribution director Paul W.S. Anderson is looking towards his next big videogame franchise.

The Playlist (which sources Punch Drunk Critics as the translation of a Cinema Today story) reports that Anderson is looking to Capcom’s “Monster Hunter” for his next property. Capcom, of course, are the company behind the “Resident Evil” games, and so it would make sense that both they and Anderson would want to continue a very commercially successful partnership. “Monster Hunter” is one of the company’s other big hitters, having sold over 20 million units since its launch in 2004.

The fantasy action game sees the player taking the role of a rookie hunter who completes quests that usually involve tracking and hunting a variety of creatures. There will be at least one more Resident Evil movie, so don’t expect any movement soon.

    To be honest, after the 6th RE he should just retire…

    I’m one of the few people who enjoy Anderson’s films. I think there fun and campy. This sounds intriguing.

    So let me guess, cast the wife as a character that is not in the game, shoot a bunch of slow mo crap, and make sequel after sequel…also, don’t look at or play any of the games, just make up shit as you go…….no thanks.
