Resident Evil: The Final Chapter released earlier this year to lukewarm ratings from critics and fans. Although it was poised to put the franchise to bed, it seems a six-movie Resident Evil Reboot is on the cards again.
It seems the curtains have not drawn on Resident Evil. According to Variety, German production company Constantin Film, who currently owns the rights to the property, are already in the early stages of developing a reboot. It’s not really a big surprise considering that the original video-game-to-movie franchise brought in a whopping $1.2-billion worldwide.
While there isn’t much in terms of details, it is safe to assume Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich won’t return. Although the series is based on the Capcom video game, there hasn’t been many tie-ins with the current games. It would be great to see a closer relationship between the games and the films. Hopefully, Alice’s story is complete and final.
