Director Paul W. S. Anderson apparently draw inspiration for the Resident Evil films by watching footage of people playing the games.

ShowbizSpy reports Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich outed her husband’s time-consuming hobby.

“Paul knows kids that are professional video game players. All they do is play the games until they master every level and unlock every code. They play the games for weeks and give Paul the footage,” she said.

“So he’s literally watching days of the most awesome Resident Evil players out there to get inspiration for the next instalment of the franchise.”

Goodness knows what a “professional” Resident Evil player actually is. If we’re talking achievement hounds, what a strange idea Anderson must have of the franchise.

Thanks, Kotaku.
