Paul W.S. Anderson is famous for two things: Being Mr. Milla Jovovich and making movies based on video games. He's now keen to spread his wings and create video games.
"In the future," the filmmaker told MTV News, "I want to be developing intellectual properties that will occupy both spaces simultaneously." Anderson has brought survival horror series Resident Evil and fighting game Mortal Kombat to the big screen.
"I've been actively involved in the gaming world for 15 years now, talking to developers ever since 'Mortal Kombat,' so I think I have a very good appreciation for what their needs and what their concerns are," says Anderson. "I think I really do know how to join the two medias, [games and movies], together in a successful way, and that's what I'll be working on in the next few years."
Anderson's next project The Three Musketeers is too far along to make a game-move collaboration possible, but he hopes that he'll be able to do that on his version of sci-fi serial Buck Rogers. Buck Rogers has already gotten version game versions, including 1982's Buck Rogers: Planet of Zoom.
"Buck Rogers is something that's starting from ground zero right now, so that's definitely something that I would be considering doing," says Anderson. "Really my approach to bridging the two medias is from 'Buck' onwards." His version of Buck Rogers is penciled in for 2011.
