Mere Months After THE FINAL CHAPTER, the RESIDENT EVIL Movies Will Reboot

Well, that didn’t last long. Beware any film that tells you it’s the final anything–Friday the 13th infamously pulled that stunt twice, and both times were made lies by subsequent events. While the Resident Evil film series as shepherded by Paul W.S. Anderson and focusing on the character of Alice (Milla Jovovich) may be done, we have not seen the last of Resident Evil movies, as Constantin Films chairman Martin Moszkowicz confirmed to Variety that a reboot is in development already.

There’s plenty of room to play in the Resident Evil universe, obviously, with 20-some games in the series set in multiple locations across the globe with varying threats. Longtime fans would undoubtedly be amenable to a movie that follows Chris Redfield or Leon Kennedy, but considering how well the movie series does in China, we can’t help thinking an Asian setting is likely next time around.

Or, you know, maybe a crossover battle between the two major female-fronted horror-action franchises distributed by Screen Gems can happen: Underworld vs. Resident Evil is a death-dealing divas match-up even casual fans might return to theaters to see, though Capcom‘s well-known penchant for tightly controlling their properties makes it unlikely in real life. And sure, the story logic in both would have to convolute quite a bit, but not much more so than it already has in the natural progression of each series.

The only request I have is that there be a fast food tie-in, because we are long overdue for an actual, licensed Jill sandwich. What would you like to see in a Resident Evil reboot? Sow your thoughts in comments below.
