‘Resident Evil’ Franchise Will Get a Reboot
Hey Horror Fans, Luke here with some cool news. It looks like we have not seen the last of the Resident Evil films!
Love them of hate them, there is no denying the Resident Evil films popularity. Despite confused storylines, convoluted scripts and over the top villains, the film series has made everyone involved a lot of money. “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” popped up in cinemas in January and grossed $312 million worldwide. The entire “Resident Evil” movie franchise, based on Capcom’s hugely popular video games, has thought to have earned around $1.2 billion worldwide to date, making it one of the most successful horror film series ever made. Sorry Freddy, but this gals got guns!
When series writer and director Paul W.S. Anderson announced the last film in the series, it was really only a matter of time before plans for more films emerged. Well it was just yesterday that Variety got the inside scoop on Resident Evil’s future.
Speaking with Martin Moszkowicz, chairman of the board at Constantin Film, Variety got him to confirm that a reboot of the series is in the work. the German production company, which owns rights to the franchise, has produced all of the film series installments and will surely be looking to keep those coffers coming in. Whilst there is no other information on the series yet, we’ll be keeping a keen ear to the ground on this one.
Lets all hope they will base the films a little more firmly on the first few games.
