Anderson game to take ‘Resident’

Constantin will fund military thriller

Paul Anderson (“Mortal Kombat”) has signed on to write and direct “Resident Evil,” the feature adaptation of the bestselling Sony PlayStation/ Capcom video game. Project will be the first production from Constantin’s new joint venture with Anderson and Jeremy Bolt’s Impact Pictures.

Constantin will fund the thriller, which is budgeted in the neighborhood of $40 million. Production is slated to begin in Europe in January, with plans for a Halloween 2001 theatrical release.

Story focuses on a military unit that fights against a powerful super computer that is out of control. In order to save the world, the military unit must combat hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating undead due to a laboratory accident.

Anderson and Bolt will produce the film with Constantin CEO Bernd Eichinger.

More than 17 million “Resident Evil” games have been sold worldwide.

Anderson, whose credits include Paramount Pictures’ sci-fi thriller “Event Horizon” and Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Soldier,” is repped by ICM and managed by Lou Pitt at the Pitt Group. Bolt is repped by ICM.
