With the final chapter out the way ($300M worldwide, including $150M+ from China), Constantin films have already begun work on rebooting the entire series. 

 

No names or dates but Den of Geek state that Paul W.S Anderson won't be involved this time around (due to working on the Monster Hunter movie)

 

Surely time for a Resident Evil cinematic universe?

Given the over-saturation of zombies in general the time in which a decent Resident Evil film could be made has long passed. 

 

Saying that, this shit inexplicably makes billions so they've got to keep milking that shit for all it's worth.

Perhaps Christopher Nolan will take it.

 

I love how they say Anderson won't be on it as he's busy, like they were actually considering him directing the reboot too? Would they also have Milla Jovovich as the lead if she wasn't busy?

I think Alfonso Cuarón would be a great choice as he could put together a truly visceral cinematic experience that recreates the sheer panic of headlong flight from ravenous zombies from a really poor camera angle with very basic tank controls. Also, the film will feature the 100% game accurate recreation of the storied history of Albert Wesker and Chrriiiiiiiiiiis that all true fans want to see from a new adaptation.

They might be poop but they bring in the money which is all that matters.

but with the same director and main cast? I don't think that ever been done in the history of film? Because it would be insane.

Terrible name.

I can’t see how it can adequately cover both 1 and 2 in a single movie without compromising one or both. 

 

I thought this too, but I guess you could use the plot of 2 with Claire as the protagonist and have her looking for Chris, then cover the events from the mansion in flashbacks as she uncovers that mystery?

Oh there's definitely ways they could frame it, but both 1 and 2 are great stories in their own right which will only be done a disservice by trying to cram them both together into one 2 hour movie. So much will have to be lost from both.

Yeah I can’t get away from thinking that. They’re also so different. 1 would be ideally suited to a creepier, slower horror movie whereas 2 would make an excellent 28 Days Later style action horror. The tension in the first one should come from the terror of the unknown, where in 2 it should be the overwhelming nature of the sheer quantity of zombies.

Say what you want about the rest of them, but I simply can't trust anyone who dislikes Retribution, which is a brilliant action film.

 

I watched them all again recently and I still can't remember which is which after the second movie.
