Since when did Hollywood stop coming up with original ideas and start nicking game concepts instead? Big screen adaptations of Silent Hill, BloodRayne and Castlevania are already on the way, and now two more videogame adaptations have been announced - alas, not there's still no sign of Katamari Damacy: The Movie.

First up is news that production company Maxmedia has acquired the rights to develop a film based on Kameo: Elements of Power, Rare's forthcoming Xbox 360 title. The full-length animated film will be written and directed by Sunmin Park, who also did Wonderful Days (known as Sky Blue in the US), an animated movie about how pollution is really bad and wrong.

Then there's good news for Resident Evil fans - according to The Hollywood Reporter, Paul S. Anderson, who directed the original film, is returning to take on Resident Evil: Afterlife. Anderson, you may recall, also directed Alien vs. Predator and the Mortal Kombat movie, and is currently working on Castlevania. Milla Jovovich will also be back to play Alice once again, and the movie will be produced by Constantin Film and Davis films.

As yet there's no release date for either film, but work on the Kameo movie is set to start next year.
