‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ to End the Franchise!

It’s been no secret that Paul W.S. Anderson’s forthcoming Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is said to be the final entry in the Resident Evil franchise. Since his return to the director’s chair with the 2010 Resident Evil: Afterlife and the 2012 Resident Evil: Retribution, Anderson has stated that this would be a “trilogy” to end Alice’s adventures.

With shooting set to commence this fall in South Africa, Ali Larter was confirmed to return as Claire Redfield in the new Resident Evil, which Sony Screen Gems has slated for release on January 27, 2017.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter picks up after the events of Resident Evil: Retribution, as the Project Alice (Milla Jovovich) is forced to race against time before the villainous Red Queen attempts to destroy the final remnants of humanity.

Retribution left off at our Nation’s capitol, with the zombie army attacking the White House.

In an interview with IGN, Larter confirmed that the next Resident Evil will in fact be “the final chapter”.

“I know it is,” said Larter. “We are not allowed to say one thing. I am held to secrecy, but what I can tell you is that the script is amazing. They’re really wrapping up the whole series, so that just makes it a little more poignant. To be able to come back and reprise my role as Claire and my relationship with Alice, with Umbrella Corp. — you know, I’m excited to get back in it. I think the fans are just going to be beyond excited.”

She continues: “How many movies have this kind of fanbase and get to be made six times?

“I think that’s extraordinary. It’s a total testament to [series star] Milla [Jovovich] and Paul. I’m so grateful to them, that they chose me to be a part of it halfway through, and they’ve kept me along for the ride. I love that it’s not seven men and one woman. I mean, these are two women, and they’re not competing with each other. You know, there are such easy clichés these two could fall into, but this is definitely a female power movie.”

Constantin Film’s Robert Kulzer, Impact Pictures’ Jeremy Bolt, Davis-Films’ Samuel Hadida, and Anderson are producing and Martin Moszkowicz serving as executive producer.

    Fun series hate to see it no longer !

    • Bobby Jones

      i’ll bet the series is rebooted within 2 years. i’ll miss Alice, it was a good concept

  • Werewolf

    LOL whut? Did Hollywood just say it was going to end a lucrative franchise? That’s like a starving vampire saying it’s going to cease to suck blood…or like Hollywood saying it’s going to give up remakes. Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich’s tenure is probably all that will end. Especially considering there are several games on the horizon that are bound to reignite interest and cause the brand’s popularity to surge.

    Bet all it takes is a high selling game and there’ll be an announcement right here on BD: “Studio green lights new Resident Evil film!

  • Wasn’t something similar said about the third transformers film? But then it made lots of money and we got a fourth and soon a fifth. This maybe the last of the Anderson RE films but I’m pretty sure someone else will pick up the reigns and especially if this latest entry proves financially successful which it will.

    🙂

  • thornvald80

    such a bad movie…the whole series..

    • Dan Herbert

      It was a really good series, the atmosphere, the epicosity, the originality. You are just butthurt because it’s not the same as the game.

  • spanky

    theyll find a way 2 turn it into a TV series is what I think

  • Grimphantom

    Good riddance. We know for sure they either going to make a spin off or a reboot, if they do a reboot i pray they follow the original source material instead of some HACK who had fan fiction mary sue characters incorporate on a franchise.

  • lhcameron

    Hate the film series all you want (even though all the games after 3 are actually WORSE than the movies now) i am so excited to see this final movie and i hope they keep alot of the details under wraps. I hate that we have to wait until 2017 to see it end but that just lets me know they are putting alot of work into this final movie!

  • JBT48

    The quality of last movies keeps dropping so I guess it’s a good thing.

  • J Jett

    i’m so happy Ali is returning. i just read Johann Urb will not be returning as Leon.

  • James Allard

    I love these goofy damned things, and I want this one to really be the end of it. Just finish it, no loose ties, just kill it.

  • Rick-Taylor

    They say this with every sequel. You can even read the article for each one, here.

  • Alexandre Bueno

    She spoiled that it’s just going to be Alice and Claire! “I love that it’s not seven men and one woman. I mean, these are two women, and they’re not competing with each other”.
    I’M SORRY, Claire is my favourite, but i also love Jill! We need the triple!!! 😀

    • J Jett

      Alexandre, Sienna (Jill) has not been confirmed yet to return so Ali was probably told she can only mention Claire & Alice for now. i did read that BingBing’s Ada is not returning as well as Johann’s Leon.

  • Alexandre Bueno

    It’s not exactly an end! I BET there’s going to be a tv show and then reboot the movies! LOLOLOLOL

  • Evan3

    I bet 10 bucks this is rebooted within five years of this film’s release, especially if the upcoming spate of video game films (like Assassin’s Creed or Warcraft) are at all successful.

  • ThunderDragoon

    I wonder if they still plan to reboot it. I hope so. I’d love to see a movie adaptation of the first game.

  • J Jett

    you guys, of course there will be a reboot. Ali is only saying that this is the final film from the Milla/Paul Anderson films. she’s not saying this is THE final RE film ever ever.

    • Tailor00

      No matter what happens, I don’t want any of those people to ever be involved in anything RESIDENT EVIL ever again.

  • MadCows

    Good! Then they can reboot them and actually follow the damn games.

  • Taboo

    Hoping they can get Sienna Guillory on board. I can care less for Bingbing. She’s not very good as Ada Wong.

  • Halloween_Vic

    Dammm but 2017? If they make it this fall, they can release it by Halloween of next year….. LOL I’m ready for this already I love the RE movies honestly for what they are, but after these films ends the 2nd trilogy, we can probably get a reboot or a prequel that can go based off the Original Mansion story from the first game and show the story of how chris and jill had their first encounter, which I know I have and many other fans really wanted originally!!!!

  • marklola12 .

    can not wait, loved all the others, great brainless action flicks
    and sorry but if the movies were exactly like the games they would be dull as pig shit

  • Donald Duck

    …wait, what? This series had a fanbase? I’ve gone to many comicbook conventions and I have not yet seen anyone reference or even acknowledge these junk films. Chances are this movie will come and go, and it’ll be at my local Wal*Mart bargain bin section. Y’know the kinds of DVDs too– no special features, a trailer, and six unrelated trailers.
