And if a Google translation of an interview Anderson gave to a Japanese website is to be believed, that next franchise could just be Capcom’s “Monster Hunter.” 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. It sounds like a pretty loose format for Anderson to play around with (although we’re sure there will be fans of the game who would disagree) and it sounds like a very easy one to sell. Of course, it doesn’t sound like a particularly good idea for a film either, but remember which Anderson we’re dealing with here and he’ll probably be able to churn out something blandly entertaining nevertheless. Likely in 3D. [Cinema Today via Punch Drunk Critics]
