The Final Of Resident Evil, Or Not?
It´s time for the final chapter in the Resident Evil series of Films. At least, that´s what the title says. To be honest, we doubt it. This series, no matter criticism or great vary of quality throughout, has generated a bunchload of cash, because no matter what the butthurt fans thinks. People want to go and see at least one naked scene (obligatory) with Milla Jovovich and see her smash, kung-fu and blow(with guns) her way through the vast armies of Zombies (no silly walkers here).
So will it end? Nah, maybe it´s the last movie for Milla in the frenchaise and for her husband(Paul W.S. Anderson) as a director. Just wait for the news about a spin off for 3-5 Prequels. Mark our words…This WILL happen.
Too much moneys to put this to rest. (See Box office performance for each movie below)
So let´s hope until the that this final episode will be as good as the first one (no chance). But hey, there´s always hope, right?
Further ComingSoon reported the following:
Last August, actress Milla Jovovich announced that she and her husband Paul W.S. Anderson were expecting their second child together, delaying the shooting of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Now, following an update earlier this year that put the franchise finale on track for an August production, Jovovich has shared the first behind-the-scenes image from the new movie’s pre-production. Check out her full Instagram post!
Shooting was initially being prepped for Cape Town, South Africa, which will be one of several locales used for the sixth and (supposed) last part in the long-running Resident Evil franchise. The last film to see release was Resident Evil: Retribution in 2012.
Anderson is set to return for his fourth outing as director and writer of the Screen Gems franchise. Meanwhile, actor Wentworth Miller (who, as of late, has been menacing “The Flash” as Captain Cold) will be reprising his role as Chris Redfield from 2010’s Resident Evil: Afterlife.
