Speaking at Beijing International Film Festival (via CNTV), Anderson states that he’s returning home to work on Resident Evil: Rising (the name as it stands), before also confirming that cast member Bingbing Li, who played Ada Wong in the previous film, is reprising her role, and that it will “definitely be 3D.”
So far we know that Rising, set to release in 2015, will focus on Alice and company working to stop the Red Queen, who now plans to end the human race from deep within the Hive after failing to stop Alice and the T-Virus from propagating.
Anderson has commented that the series may continue past the sixth film, though his wife, Milla Jovovich, will likely bow out after Rising, which is expected to end Alice’s story arc.
Eager to see another Resident Evil film that honors the canon of its source material about as much as The Walking Dead TV series does? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
