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.
