New Resident Evil movie in production, to release in 2012

Saturday, 5th March 2011 08:55 GMT By Debabrata Nath

According to a Box Office Mojo report, a new Resident Evil movie is currently in production and already has a release date – September 14, 2012.

The untitled movie will be the fifth in the RE series, and will come with 3D support.

Last year’s Resident Evil Afterlife, was, by far, the highest grossing RE movie ever made, generating over $236 million in revenue, which is “about as much as the first three movies combined,” the site observed.

Most of Afterlife’s success was due to the movie supporting 3D viewing, as nearly 80 percent of the movie’s domestic revenue came from its 3D screenings, according to the report.

The movie will be produced by Sony pictures and will release two years after Afterlife, the shortest gap between two Resident Evil movie releases so far.

Capcom appears to be increasingly enamoured with the silver screen: a Devil May Cry movie is also reported to be in production.

    The Devil May Cry anime was alright. But you can’t do the franchise properly in live action unless you spend a metric fuck ton of money. All those bizar and sometimes gigantic monsters combined with crazy gun wire work kung fu action.
    Can’t be done on the cheap.

    Afterlife wasn’t bad, would like to see how this upcoming one will work out.

    The soundtrack from Afterlife was without a doubt the best part. Looking forward to this, though.

    I’ve the perfect plot for DMC, he should be part of a family of bad asses, who deal in antiques, dishing out justice to corrupt politicians & curators. Mark Wahlberg as Dante obviously.

    Chris Redfield is a young caddy at Bushwood Country Club who has no idea about where his future will lead. His best chance at getting his life on track is to earn a caddy scholarship from the Umbrella Coporation, the financees of the Country Club. Albert Wesker is a rude, and overly eccentric millionaire who has interests in purchasing Bushwood. The umbrella officials show a quick disliking towards Albert and soon there is a conflict between the Umbrella Corporation and Albert, the Umbrella Corporation and Chris, and even between Umbrella and Jill Valentine the charming golfer who is slowly helping Chris figure out his real goals.

    I have an even better idea for a plot guys!

    The film starts off in the writers room for the movie, with two writers flicking snot at each other instead of coming up with a script for a movie series that has gotten worse over time culminating in a torrid, worthless pile of crap that is an insult to writers everywhere.

    Meanwhile the director, locked in his room, repeatedly smacks himself upside the head with a mallet because he was blinded by his lack of brain cells for putting his shoddy ‘actress’ wife in a role which didn’t even exist in the Resident Evil Canon.

    The supporting cast members throughout the film have cursed themselves over and over again for appearing in such a shoddy piece of human engineering. They have in fact convinced themselves that the fans of this movie franchise are zombies themselves and are currently jumping of buildings to escape their certain death.

    The plot ends where Alice realises she wasn’t in any of the games, this realisation brings her to the cusp of insanity. She magically summons a baseball bat to her grasp (because apparently that shit is normal in this ridiculous franchise) and bludgeons the writers, directors, directors of photography, supporting cast, editors and in a finally tear jerking scene – EATS HER OWN FACE!

    Oscars galore, a bastion of human ingenuity this will become, and generations to come will ponder on the majesty of such a film.

    Ok, enough already, these RE movies have nothing to do with the game, plus they all suck ASS.
    Give us a Silent Hill sequel, instead!

    really to start with id like to tell everyone here to STOP! with their moaning and childish crying tantrums. first of all i bet none of you could even write a poem, never mind a script for a film, and second you probably can’t act either, so if you don’t like the film go and find something better to do instead of moaning about it. to be honest i like these films, even if they’re not like the games, who cares, iv’e seen films where the actors can’t even act, i cant believe how people put this film down when its best zombie film out of every single zombie film iv’e watched and throughout the collection it has a great story line to it and plus this film has had the same actress all the way through. keep up the good work and keep these movies coming, there the best. all the best. G:)
