“Resident Evil” film franchise is up for a reboot
After a disappointing out for Milla Jovovich’s Alice in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, it looks like the CAPCOM game film series is up for a revamp, albeit involving the same Constantin Film, which has produced all the previous Resident Evil films and still owns rights to the franchise.
But I guess solace can be taken in the fact that James Wan has been pegged to produce the reboot.
The plan is to have a 6 film series, so with that kind of logic, it already feels like a slew of pulpy films rather than a virgin-tight, succinct trilogy or the likes. But of course, we could be wrong.
It will be also interesting to see what will exactly be the source of inspiration for this slew of Resident Evil films. A rehash of the old or maybe a look at something along the vein of Resident Evil VII?
Time, ultimately, will tell.
