Paul W. S. Anderson's Monster Hunter is not the only video game movie Constantin Film is currently working on, as the company is also developing a reboot of the panned Resident Evil film series. According to Variety's sources, the movie has finally found its director in Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down, The Strangers: Prey at Night), who will not only helm, but also write the upcoming picture.

The Resident Evil reboot is expected to start production in 2019 with a brand new cast, as Milla Jovovich, who played the series' main protagonist Alice in six Paul W. S. Anderson-helmed Resident Evil movies, won't return to star in the flick. The film's first draft was written by Greg Russo, who's also scripting another video game adaptation, the Mortal Kombat reboot for New Line Cinema.

In Russo's opinion, his take on Resident Evil is heavily inspired by the most recent installment in the game series, Resident Evil VII: Biohazard. In the game, the player controls Ethan Winters, who is searching for his wife in a derelict plantation occupied by a cannibal family.

Resident Evil  will be produced by James Wan, the acclaimed director of The Conjuring and Aquaman.
