Exactly one year ago we heard that director Paul W.S. Anderson was talking to Sony about making a fourth Resident Evil film. Resident Evil: Extinction tripped it’s budget so i’m sure it didn’t take much convincing, and now we have word that it may have a title, Resident Evil: Afterlife, and that it may be released next year.
Late last year, Paul W.S. Anderson revealed he was indeed writing another film. Capcom was getting involved. Everyone, as he said, was “excited.” Well, we’ve just learned from a studio insider that Sony is looking to get Resident Evil: Afterlife into theaters by September 17, 2010. That’s according to an internal memo circulating through the offices there.
Will Anderson direct? Unsure. Will Milla Jovovich be back? I think it would be safe to say yes considering the last entry ended on – SPOILER ALERT – Alice clones getting ready to seek revenge on the Umbrella Corporation which was holed up in Tokyo.
If they are indeed looking at a September 2010 release date then we should be hearing more developments over the upcoming weeks and months.
