RESIDENT EVIL 6 Has No Release Date or Script - But Paul W.S. Anderson Wants it to Happen
Since it launched, the RESIDENT EVIL franchise has become known for a few things: straying from its video game source material, Milla Jovovich's incessant need to destroy the living dead, and each installment rolling out on a fairly regular schedule.
However, the sixth film in the series, originally set for a Sept. 12, 2014 release, definitely isn't going to be making that deadline. The film, according to 'EVIL' helmer Paul W.S. Anderson, currently has no release date. Or a script.
In a new interview with Collider, Anderson, who's just put the finishing touches on the screenplay for POMPEII, confirms he's still intent on making RESIDENT EVIL 6 a reality.
"We'd like to do another Resident Evil movie. Definitely," he said. "But the wheels aren't quite in motion yet."
Anderson previously told the publication that the film would wrap up the series, and, predictably, include a whole lot of bloodshed, and/or death.
In the last RESIDENT EVIL film, subtitled RETRIBUTION and released in 2012, Jovovich resumes her role as Alice from the original film, and this time she's caught in the path of the Umbrella Corporation's deadly T-virus. In the sequel, Alice awakens in the heart of Umbrella's most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true.
