Resident Evil prequel?

You know when someone offers you some sort of new chocolate that they got from their trip overseas, you take one to be nice, and it's not really that great? But then you smile and say you like it, and they go, "Oh here, have this whole box!" That's kind of how I feel about the RESIDENT EVIL series at this point.

Bloody Disgusting has learned that despite having a fourth film (AFTERLIFE) on the way,RESIDENT EVIL is already looking ahead (well, behind) to a fifth installment, which is said to be a prequel, and if one was feeling cruel, you might even call it a "reboot."

"While it's a long, long, long way off, the idea is to redo the story of a special military unit who fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating creatures after a laboratory accident."

So more or less, you’re making DOOM. And presumably without Milla Jovovich. Wow, this has good idea written all over it! Let’s have Malcolm McDowell voice the supercomputer, Tyler Mane be the lead mutated scientist and Channing Tatum as the tough-but-boyish special unit commander. There, done, you can pay me later Sony.

Extra Tidbit: You do know that Milla Jovovich and Paul W.S. Anderson are married right?
