Resident Evil: Afterlife

According to ShockTilYouDrop, "Late last year, Paul W.S. Anderson revealed he was indeed writing another film. Capcom was getting involved. Everyone, as he said, was 'excited.' Well, we've just learned from a studio insider that Sony is looking to get Resident Evil: Afterlife into theaters by September 17, 2010. That's according to an internal memo circulating through the offices there.

"Will Anderson direct? Unsure. Will Milla Jovovich be back? I think it would be safe to say yes considering the last entry ended on - SPOILER ALERT - Alice clones getting ready to seek revenge on the Umbrella Corporation which was holed up in Tokyo."

Despite the last two entries in the series being a bit lackluster (especially Apocalypse), I'm still hoping for the best and looking forward to the next one. It seems, according to the news, that most of it will take place in Tokyo, but a couple of weeks ago I reported (from Movies Online) that Anderson mentioned it would take place in Alaska, which is also where the group said they were headed in Extinction. Regardless, at least we now have a release date. I'm not sure why STYD is confused about whether or not Anderson is involved, considering he just finished the script, but maybe they mean whether or not he'll direct. He only directed the original, so maybe I'm a bit too hard on him. Maybe it's the directors just screwing up his scripts.
