Next Resident Evil Movie Kicks Off New Film Trilogy, Will Be Released in 3D

Resident Evil: Afterlife, the fourth live-action film based on Capcom's popular survival horror game franchise, is to kick start another trilogy of Resident Evil movies, writer and director Paul W.S. Anderson tells ShockTillYouDrop.

"I don't regard it as Resident Evil 4, I regard it as a re-tooling and rebirth of the entire franchise," Anderson explained. "I wanted to kick off a brand new trilogy."

The director further revealed that the 2010-due, Milla Jovovich-starring flick will utilize stereoscopic 3D and "the same camera system [James] Cameron used for Avatar," and will also have a larger budget than any of his past Resident Evil movies.

    Ah geez..

    I dunno what the general opinion of the last live-action movie was, but I thought it was horrendous.

    I hope Afterlife is better. But geez, Afterlife? Talk about some creative titles.

      I thought the first one was okay for what it was meant to be. Not GREAT but okay. The second one was just bad and the third one was AWFUL.

          there were some pretty bad loop holes or gaping plot holes in #2. The biggest one I remember is the fact that the already dead cemetary people came to life and crawled out to attack them... the T-Virus if I'm not mistaken, re-animates the recently infected, then dead, not the already dead.
