The next instalment in the Resident Evil movie franchise will once again feature Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich in their capacity as director and lead role, respectively.
Last week it was reported that Resident Evil 6 (working title) is being lined up for a September 12, 2014 release. However, at the time it was unknown if Anderson and wife Jovovich would return.
Anderson is reportedly due to start filming the zombie-horror flick this fall, with Mr X returning to helm the visual effects.
Resident Evil 6 is expected to conclude the current story arch, although we’ve already heard rumblings that the franchise will continue, albeit perhaps with less focus on Jovovich’s character.
The last chapter in the series, Resident Evil: Retribution, pulled in over $221 million globally following its release last September. Given the nature of the ending scene, a sequel was always inevitable.
