While Resident Evil: The Final Chapter was touted as the conclusion to the six-film series, fans may not have seen the last of the franchise on the big screen. Variety reports that the chairman of the board at Constantin Film, Martin Moszkowicz, has confirmed that a reboot of the franchise is in development at Germany production company, which produced all six entries of the film series.
Details on the reboot and how it will connect to the previous installments of the franchise are currently unknown.
Based on the Capcom video game series, the original six entries in the film franchise starred Milla Jovovich as the lead protagonist named Alice.
The Resident Evil franchise has become the highest-grossing film series to be based on a video game with a combined worldwide gross of $1.2 billion.
Variety reports that the participation of Paul W.S. Anderson, who wrote all six Resident Evil films and directed four, is subject to question due to his current involvement in a film adaptation of Capcom’s video game titled Monster Hunter.
