Moszkowicz also confirmed to the outlet that development on the refresh series is now underway, and that Constantin Film maintains ownership over the Resident Evil franchise rights. And now there's word from Variety that German production house Constantin Film is planning to do an original 6-film franchise, effectively rebooting the whole thing all over again.
Constantin Film acquired the movie rights to the Resident Evil franchise in 1997 and put out the first in what would ultimately be a series of half a dozen films in 2002.
No spoilers! 'Twin Peaks' premiere urges guests to keep secret
The changes are to be expected, given that the last series ended with Cooper literally trapped in a demon-infested environment. So there we have it - make sure you set the right ambiance at home when it comes to watching the new series of Twin Peaks ...
For now there still isn't any other details like who could direct or star, and it's not known if it'll tie into the previous franchise at all.
Resident Evil is the highest-grossing film series of all time that's based on a video game, raking in over $1.2 billion worldwide, and now the series is being rebooted. For the Resident Evil fans, they are hungry for more action and they are looking at Resident Evil 2. Having a movie based on the original Resident Evil with Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they are stuck in an abandoned mansion has a lot of potential and could be built upon with future sequels, which you know they are already thinking about. The $40 million-budgeted sixth film, distributed by Sony's Screen Gems, has earned $312.2 million worldwide. Paul W.S. Anderson has directed the majority of the films and written all of them, with Milla Jovovich starring. Does this mean we'll get more campy goodness? With this news that the movies are also going to be rebooted, it's interesting to see such a long-running series have a fresh start of sorts.
