IGN is reporting that Christophe Gans, who directed the 2006 video game-based horror/thriller movie Silent Hill, has been attached to another video game-based movie–Onimusha. Gans will direct the film for production company Davis Films, who was also behind Silent Hill and Gans’ Brotherhood of the Wolf.

Onimusha will have a budget of $70 million and it’s currently being shopped around to film studios. Filming is set to begin in China next February for a December 2009 release.

ComingSoon is reporting that popular adventure game series Broken Sword will be turned into a movie sometime in the future.
