The German mini-major behind the 'Resident Evil' franchise and Netflix's 'Shadowhunters' says he has re-upped through February 2021.

Martin Moszkowicz is staying on as head of Constantin Film, one of Europe's leading producer/distributors.

Moszkowicz on Wednesday announced he is extending his contract with Constantin for another four years, which will see him remain CEO of the German mini-major until at least Feb. 28, 2021.

Moszkowicz has been with Constantin since 1990 and has been a major force in establishing, and maintaining, the company's position as one of the few truly global indie producers.

Constantin's Resident Evil franchise crossed the $1 billion global revenue mark recently, thanks to the performance of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the last entry in the horror sci-fi series, which has grossed some $240 million worldwide to date, including more than $100 million in China.

On the small screen, Constantin's fantasy series Shadowhunters has been renewed by Netflix for a second season.

Constantin has also seen local success with German-language comedy franchise Suck Me Shakespeer, the third installment of which is set to hit theaters later this year.
