The reign of terror that was Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil series is finally over. For many who were fans of the old games, seeing Anderson place his wife in trashy CGI nonsense and then have teenage girls go wild for it, who never appreciated the old horror, was kind of painful.
Now according to Variety, the time has come and they’re starting over;
Details such as the reboot director, stars, and how the reboot would fit into the franchise narrative are being kept under wraps. But Martin Moszkowicz, chairman of the board at Constantin Film, did confirm to Variety at the Cannes Film Festival that a reboot is in development at the giant German production company, which owns rights to the franchise and has produced all of its installments.
It doesn’t matter who is directing, because it’s not going to be Anderson. It doesn’t matter what it’s about, because it can’t possibly be worse than what we’ve had. My suggestion would be to simply make a movie about the old mansion, with zombies and firearms.
