Director Paul W.S. Anderson Will Start Mking Parallel Film-Game Projects

Paul W.S. Anderson, known director in the videogame world for his movie takes on Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil, has announced his intention to create games based on the movies he does:
"In the future I want to be developing intellectual properties that will occupy both spaces simultaneously.”

"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."

"I think I really do know how to join the two medias together in a successful way, and that's what I'll be working on in the next few years."
Anderson, is currently busy with the last movie of Resident Evil (Afterlife), which is due soon, and is also in Production of a movie based on the Three Musketeers, but he ruled off the possibility of making these into games because they are to advanced to make a move like that now. He has been talked to direct the 3D movie Buck Rogers in which there might be more possibilities for this initiative:
"Buck Rogers is something that's starting from ground zero right now, so that's definitely something that I would be considering doing.”

"Really my approach to bridging the two medias is from Buck onwards."
I don't know whether to believe in the possibility of quality games based on movies, but it is true Anderson knows the industry better than many Directors so... we can hope...
