'Resident Evil' Franchise Is Getting Rebooted, Of Course

Resident Evil Ali Larter Claire Redfield

Wan, who is now directing Aquaman for Warner Bros, will produce the Resident Evil reboot pic (the first of six, as reported by our sister publication Variety) for Constatin Films and Screen Gems.

The upside of a Resident Evil reboot, at least for fans of the video game franchise, is that this creates the opportunity to have movies that are more loyal to the games on which it will be based.

Paul W.S. Anderson, who has written all six movies and directed four, hasn't said if he will return for the new reboot.

Bradford Hornsby is an editor, music writer, web producer, and pop culture blogger for CBS stations in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Well that didn't take long - Resident Evil: The Final Chapter released on blu-ray and dvd on May 16th.

According to the report, Constantin Film board chairman Martin Moszkowicz confirmed at Cannes Film Festival that the German studio is developing a Resident Evil series reboot.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter was previously described as the last movie in the franchise, but like the zombies that terrorize the series, it seems that it will be rising from the dead. It's not known who is going to direct the movies and who will star in them. (It grossed $312 million.) But apparently, the people in charge want the show to go on. He and Wan are also working on overhauling the Mortal Kombat franchise, another video game adaptation, for a new set of films. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that a Resident Evil reboot is already being developed overseas. Admittedly, I've never seen any of the Resident Evil movies under the same sleep deprived over-caffeinated deeply paranoid conditions as I played the games. For quite some time the Resident Evil games started to feel like they were tip toeing closer and closer to the action genre rather than being a true thriller that focuses on scares before action.
