Because you didn't ask for it, Paul W.S. Anderson is set to direct Resident Evil 6

Mar. 13, 2013by: Niki Stephens

I will always be thankful to Paul W.S. Anderson for bringing MORTAL KOMBAT to the big screen. I remember the first time I saw the trailer for that, and my little heart was filled with so much joy and carnage. It's one of the only video game adaptations that work, in my opinion. That's also a long drawn out conversation that I don't want to bore you with.

We are talking about Anderson because he's decided to jump on board to direct RESIDENT EVIL 6 because...what else does he have to do? I personally think those should have stopped after the third, but people do still watch them. RESIDENT EVIL is actually a pretty good video game adaptation as well. But doing like four or more of the same series is a tad too many.

Anderson will get right on top of this thing come Fall with Milla Jovovich obviously in the lead. What else can I tell you about this? Nada. I figure that this will probably be the last of these. Anderson will find something else to work on. He's said something about doing an adaptation of Buck Rogers and some found footage movie. Haven't heard an update on either of those projects. Besides, Anderson and Jovovich always seem like they are having a great time when they are filming.

Ready for more RESIDENT EVIL?

In the real world the world I live in always, and the world all you internet junkies can't embrace, people still like to have fun. I know these movies aren't great works of art, but any fool can tell you they're fun.

So for you who want to have a good time, you're welcome to join the rest of us in the real world.

Resident Evil 6...woah

Part of me is happy and the other is sad....After the last Resident Evil, I thought it was enough. I guess all I ask for in the new 6th movie, is adding some believable reality and sticking closer to the original material. Dont get me wrong, I like mindless Zombie/monster fighting...but after awhile, I want more out of this franchise.

Sorry this series bores me to tears but I do agree with you on Mortal Kombat.

You're right, we didnt ask for this. We haven't asked for any of these sequels since the second one.

BLEH

I've always said that man's middle initials stand for Wretched script. the resident evil movie prove this, HBO should buy the resident evil franchise and do a mini series reboot, full r rating zombie goodness like the walking dead.

The new Uwe Boll

Anderson is becoming the new Boll, putting out crap that no one cares for simply because he can do it cheaply release it widely and make some money. They are an embarrassment. I have the last movie and have yet to watch it, that's how into it I am lol.

On a side note I think its telling that everyone in the above photo has their safety equipment on except the star of the franchise....way to look out for your money maker Uwe!

The only way this series will die is if Milla and Anderson get a divorce.

Here's my idea of Resident Evil series - make it an actual TV series. It's not going to be just about shooting zombies but also mystery solving, puzzle solving, untangle some conspiracy theories while shooting zombies and other horrifying creatures every now and then. It should also take place in a confined space such as a mansion or a hospital.

I am going to settle this...

I love these movies for the sheer stupidness of them. I DO NOT look at them AS BEING anything remotely close to RE games. It's RE in a whole different universe. Now All I hope is that this is the last one. And for it to go out with a huge bang :) I just want it to be like a 1hr 50min movie with so much insane shit and a proper closed ending. Thats all I hope and all I want. IS that to hard to ask. Prob. And then years later reboot it and give us a real fuckin RE movie.

Fuck this shit.

I do give the franchise credit that its been able to have the same cast come back for multiple films for each one of their characters. No small feat.

Well, I stopped watching after the 2nd film, so can't say I care much. At least this will prevent him from ruining something good. His Three Musketeers was just an awful, awful, awful mess. And yes, that movie deserves the extra awful's in that sentence.

I agree with you there. I got 30mins into it. I fast forward through the rest of the film to see nothing else happen at all.

I promise this will b in theaters for a week, before it goes to vod. Why the fuck do they still let this HACK make movies??? This franchise is ridiculous! And pointless! The 1st one was ok. Hopefully this film will tank so bad, that it finally sticks the fork in this dog shit franchise

You do now that these movies make millions more than their budget right? When have any of the last five been in the movies for a week.

This series is a mess.

After I got over that fact that first movie has very little to do with the game (I disagree with Niki that it was a good adaptation), I found it to be a pretty enjoyable sci-fi zombie film. But for whatever reason, in Resident Evil 2 they decided to mix their story with that of the game's and include characters like Jill and Carlos. Ever since then, ever follow-up has added random bits from the game in with their crap and it's all a steaming load in my opinion. I watched part 2 and hated

I watched part 2 and hated (even after giving it a second chance), pained my way through part 3, shut off part 4 after Alice landed the plan on a building, didn't bother with part 5, and I will completely ignore part 6's existence. I know some like these films and that's fine, it's just not my cup of tea.

Ugh...

Ya know, I really enjoyed the first one of these, I even had fun with the 2nd one, but after that they got worse and worse. He seems to have this huge thing for slo-mo fight scenes and people for some reason being able to do superhuman things, like jumping 12 feet. The last 2 have been horrendously awful films, I'm ready now for this series to end, here's one reboot I'm ready for, just get him out of the picture for god's sake!
