Netflix might be working on a Resident Evil film project.

According to Deadline, a film version of the famous horror franchise by Capcom is underway. The show, however, will only be "loosely based" on the script of the game version. German company Constantine Film is reported to be in charge but they are still looking for an official showrunner.

Constantine Film had produced the last 6-part-series of the franchise which spanned from 2002 to 2016 including Resident Evil and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter before. The series was pretty successful, counted as the highest-grossing film series based on a video game with approx. $1.2 billion. The films featured Alice (played by Milla Jovovich) in her battle against the dark corporation Umbrella who caused a zombie apocalypse by a bioweapon called T Virus to serve their own purposes.

While Paul W. S. Anderson will not come back as the series' writer and director, Constantine Film reportedly hired Johannes Roberts last month to write the script and direct the show.

According to reveals, the reboot series will land on TV and is promising to widen and further develop the lore of the series and its universe itself. Obviously, it is still based on the original version of the game but this series is believed to dig more into the mysterious inner action of the so-called Umbrella Corporation. Nevertheless, we can always expect some thrilling, action elements while they still fully showcase the features of Resident Evil.
