Resident Evil prequel?

09.08.2009by:

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?

do them right the first time

you know there was a series of books based of the video games that were excellent, why they never took those and made them into movies is beyond me. the three resident evil movies are good and i liked them, I just would have like them better if they weren't attached to Resident Evil. Just do the damn books.

No

To anyone that thinks GA Romero should do any of these films, or a reboot... read his Resident Evil script... it's fucking awful... awful... and even though most of the games had solid plots, they don't pen over to the big screen, GA Romero's script was pretty close to the first game, and the script came off cartoonish...

lets reboot this shit and do it right! GET YOUR ASS CRAWLING BACK TO ROMERO, BEGGING FOR FORGIVENESS AND KISSING HIS ASS! seriously, they had the king of zombie movies with an awesome script and willing to direct, and they go with f-ing Paul W.S. Anderson?! resident evil was inspired by romero, without him there would be no resident evil. they even asked him to direct their commercial.

ugh

When I first read the title, I was hoping that they were going to reboot the entire series and DO IT RIGHT... a prequel for a series that has gone nowhere but down is just wrong...

That's the sound of the bottom of the barrel being smashed open with a diarrhea torpedo.

For Christ's sake, we were finally nearing the end of this nightmare and now we have to look forward to another poorly conceived series of RE films that move even further towards ignoring anything that made RE popular, likes its story.

these movies are terrible... I can't believe they're thinking about rebooting it when they've already done 3 sequels that get shittier with each one.

I disagree with the analogy ... but none of the Resident Evil have been any good. Why bother make another one ?

I wish Sony would pull its cock out of the resident evil franchises @ss and let it die. The first 3 games would be this generations night and dawn of the dead movies if they were adapted properly. But Sony wants this to be some dumb action franchise and letting an idiot write them.
