Sixth film in the popular zombie franchise may be the end of the line
The Resident Evil movie series has now been running almost as long (and with almost as convoluted a plot) as the video game series to which it’s loosely connected. But it may not be for much longer.
Speaking to Collider, director/producer Paul W.S. Anderson – who started the franchise, has directed 3 of the 5 previous films and is married to series star Milla Jovovich – revealed that the working title for the sixth’s film’s screenplay is The Final Chapter. Said Anderson: “That’s what’s on the title page, it’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, so absolutely.”
Begun in 2002, the Resident Evil film franchise follows sometimes-superpowered spy/mercenary Alice (Jovovich) as she and a rotating cast of characters from the games battle The Umbrella Corporation after their unscrupulous experiments unleash a plague of zombies and mutant creatures on the world. No plot details of The Final Chapter are known, but the previous installment ended with Alice and her allies joining a fortified human resistance in Washington DC and the reveal of previously-unseen winged monsters as a new threat.
