Paul W.S. Anderson has made a whole bunch of Resident Evil movies. And those movies have made a whole bunch of money. But Anderson doesn't only have eyes for Capcom's survival horror franchise. Apparently, he's keen to bring Monster Hunter to the silver screen, too.

In an interview with Cinema Today, Anderson said, "Recently, I love Monster Hunter! Now, we are in the middle of planning a movie version." There's not much more info than that, and this sounds very early in production. Still, if you like what Anderson has done with the Resident Evil movies, this should make you happy. If you don't then, well, yeah.

DISCUSSION

How's that even going to work? Resident Evil as a franchise has a crappy overall story, but Monster Hunter is just devoid of one entirely.

Are they really going to fill 1 and half hours with people running out into areas, attacking monsters, skinning said monsters, and going back to town to craft armor with talking cats...then repeating it ad nauseum?
