Constantin Film to Produce New ‘Resident Evil’ Reboot Movie

Just four days after Resident Evil: The Final Chapter hit retail shelves on home video formats, Constantin Film has announced that they will be continuing the franchise in the form of an upcoming reboot movie. Constantin’s board chairman,  Martin Moszkowicz, confirmed to Variety at Cannes Film Festival that the project (based loosely on the popular Capcom video game series) is currently in development. 

It isn’t surprising that Constantin wouldn’t want to stop at The Final Chapter… the film earned over $312 million worldwide on a budget of just $40 million (low by big action movie standards). While interest in the franchise has waned in the United States over the years, its recent entries have been smash hits in international markets like China.

A reboot most likely means that the series’ star, Milla Jovovich, will not return as Alice; and that her husband, Paul W.S. Anderson will likely not be returning to the franchise to write and/or direct. After six films, it will be interesting to see if the key talent sitting this one out will affect consumer interest at the box office.

At this time, writers, directors, actors, a release date etc., have yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on the Resident Evil reboot as it breaks!
