Onimusha movie has been a 'very big challenge' for filmmakers

"We'll wait a little bit on Onimusha." Samuel Hadida

Onimusha won't be hitting the big screen anytime soon, said Samuel Hadida, the man in charge of the Resident Evil and Silent Hill films.

In an interview with Forbes, Hadida explained that the Capcom title is getting the back burner treatment — at least for the time being..

"Onimusha has been a very big challenge to do because it was a Samurai movie and we have tried to make it," said Hadida. "The budget was very expensive — and we see what Universal is doing with their Samurai movie, 47 Ronin. We're not going to have space for two Samurai movies, so we'll wait a little bit on Onimusha."

Hadida's next project is a film adaption of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, a first-person shooter originally released in 2001. The film follows B.J. Blazkowicz as he battles armies of undead zombies during World War 2 in what Hadida calls "Inglorious Basterds meets Resident Evil." The film is expected to hit theaters in two years, said Hadida.
