When Paul W.S. Anderson ended the 2012 Resident Evil: Retribution, he left the franchise open for one finale battle at the white house.
The movie was a success, quickly forcing Sony SCreen Gems’ hand to announce Resident Evil 6 for September 12, 2014.
Going into this year, it was clear they weren’t going to make the date, being that there was no word on production even remotely close to starting. With Anderson’s Pompeii hitting theaters, Collider was able to get the latest on the franchise that continues a resurrection.
“We’d like to do another Resident Evil movie. Definitely,” said Anderson. “But the wheels aren’t quite in motion yet.”
The site also states that Anderson hasn’t begun writing the script, but he did tell them awhile ago that he had a story in mind for Resident Evil 6 that involved a lot of death and would bring the franchise to a close. In addition, they caught up with Screen Gems President, Clint Culpepper, at the junket and he made it very clear that another Resident Evil was a priority and he was just waiting on Anderson to move forward.
Personally, this is a franchise I’d like to see rebooted. Screen Gems had originally planned to reboot it until the fourth film was a massive success for them.
