Resident Evil 6 movie is in the works as director Paul W.S. Anderson hinted that this would be the last Resident Evil movie in the franchise.
According to reports from Collider, Paul W.S. Anderson is currently writing the script for the Resident Evil 6 Movie under the working title of Resident Evil: The Last Chapter (formerly Resident Evil: Rising).
“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the working title. It may end up being the final title, but that’s what’s written on the front page of my script… I’m right in the middle of [the first draft].”
Anderson adds that there is no scheduled date for the production to start as well as a release date of the film.
“There are no set dates for shooting yet. I think we’re waiting until we have a first draft screenplay and then go from there… I don’t know [when it will be in theaters], depends how fast I write, I guess. There’s no set date yet but hopefully we’ll have an announcement for that soon.”
It was reported that Sony will have plans of rebooting the Resident Evil franchise as Paul W.S. Anderson will work on another video game movie, Assassin’s Creed. Anderson made a statement regarding the Resident Evil movies. “… As you probably know, when we set up the first movie, we didn’t even have an American deal for the first film until half way through principal photography. It was a movie that was entirely financed internationally and Sony only kind of distributed it in North America… Because at the time, it as a movie that no one really wanted, that no one was excited about, it was based on a video game and for a while there, since Mortal Kombat, there hadn’t been any successful video game adaptations. Although, me returning to that genre obviously gave it a better chance than most. There was still skepticism about whether that was the kind of valid thing to do to [turn] video games to movies. It was quite soon after Columbine, so it was a video game that was known to be very violent and there was a big backlash against that, and I wanted to make it an R-rated movie and that was very unfashionable at the time…”
Meanwhile, three new characters are rumored to be part of Resident Evil 6 movie.
Comicvine reports that a survey was conducted to see which Resident Evil characters should join the last movie. Majority answered that they want Jack Krauser, HUNK and Sherry Birkin in the Resident Evil: The Last Chapter.
