Thereâ€™s a third sequel to Paul W.S Andersonâ€™s schmaltzy zombie actioner ”Resident Evil” in the works as we speak – but already Sony Screen Gems are said to be thinking franchise reboot!
Doesnâ€™t me a lick of sense to me either!? A reboot even before the the next ‘sequel’ is out!?
Bloody Disgusting reports, â€œWhile Milla Jovovich is confirmed for Afterlife, it’s got to be getting expensive and (increasingly) difficult to keep her onboard, even though she is married to producer Paul W.S. Anderson. Instead of moving forward with the ongoing story, the studio is planning a quasi-reboot, which is tentatively titled Resident Evil Begins. 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. What do you guys think about a reboot only 8-9 years after the franchise began?â€
I tell ya what I think â€“ I think itâ€™s razor-blades for Hollywood all round!
