The Resident Evil Movies Are Getting Rebooted

Anderson, who is married to Jovovich, also hinted he'd no longer be working on any more films in the Resident Evil universe when he spoke to website dreadcentral.com earlier this year. As Europe's most successful independent horror genre movie franchise, it's no surprise that Constantin Film, who own the rights to the franchise are looking to milk this cash cow for all it's worth.

Based on Capcom's hugely popular video games, the Resident Evil movies have earned $1.2 billion worldwide to date, making it the highest-grossing film series to be based on a video game. Moszkowicz executive produced the film, and Paul W.S Anderson directed.

Bradford Hornsby is an editor, music writer, web producer, and pop culture blogger for CBS stations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Starring the face of Resident Evil herself, Milla Jovovich, The Final Chapter was a total commercial success, particularly in the global box office.

Nonetheless, Constantin Film has announced that the film franchise, despite having just completed its final installment, will be getting a reboot in the future.

Fans of Resident Evil rejoice!

Expect Resident Evil: Re-resurrected to arrive in theatres sometime in the near future and will likely prove that not only are zombies a threat of the future, but could be well and alive among us today as they mindlessly go and watch another one. That's in addition to the idea that he's already spent six films covering his vision for Resident Evil, so Anderson might not have a lot left to say regardless.

Variety first reported the news of the Resident Evil reboot after speaking with Martin Moszkowicz, chairman of the board at Constantin Film, at the Cannes Film Festival. He also cited the short span between the launch of "Resident Evil 7" and the end of the fiscal year, saying how 3.5 million sales is not bad, even referring to it as a "solid start". Anderson is now working on another project based on a Capcom video game, Monster Hunter. Admittedly, I've never seen any of the Resident Evil movies under the same sleep deprived over-caffeinated deeply paranoid conditions as I played the games.
