Resident Evil: Afterlife - It's Happening

Seems Sony has backpeddled a bit after the theatrical success of Extinction.

ComingSoon:
Paul W.S. Anderson will probably writing Resident Evil 4 after he's done with The Long Good Friday.
Interesting. I wonder what it'll be about since Milla said she felt she'd done all she could do with the character of Alice and wouldn't be returning for any sequels during the promotion of Extinction. Rumor has it it'll focus on Claire Redfield and the trip to Alaska. It may include parts of the story of the game Resident Evil 4 as well.

Thoughts?

How can it follow parts of RE4 when the last two movies didn't even come close to what the games were about?

I still haven't seen the third Resident Evil yet...and yes I will be waiting to see if Mila makes a decision to reprise her role or not. Isn't she married to Anderson?

So they're doing this and the animated movie? Well, why not I guess.

To be fair, a movie version of the first game would have made the actual game's acting look amateurish and embarrassing by comparison.

"Wait! Don't open... that door!"
"I hope this isn't CHRIS' blood!"

LOL! The terrible voice acting was part of the original Resident Evil's charm, wasn't it?

'That was too close! You were almost a Jill sandwich!'
'It's a weapon. It's really powerful against living things!'
And the alltime classic: 'NOOOOOO! DON'T GO!'

"Jill, here's a lockpick. It might be handy if you, the master of unlocking, take it with you."

It will be interesting to see where a fourth film goes. The others were more "inspired by" the Resident Evil games than anything else and kind of took their own course by the end.

^ I suppose if they do convince Milla to return that we'll be seeing pretty much her on the screen all the time. Clones.

Re: Resident Evil: Afterlife - It's Happening

he 1st one was half decent but it was downhill from there, number 2 was ruined by making Nemesis too human emotionally when it should of just been a death killing machine. Number 3 was just plain bad with a captial BAD...at least we saw Wesker though.

in a RE 4 I demand we see Claire/Chris story with Wekser/Barry in the plot and I want to see dam Hunters

^ It wasn't that bad, it could have been a lot worse (the remake of Day of the Dead for example).

Call me crazy but I thought the movies were ok. Certainly not great by any means, but ok. I'll certainly go watch it when released.
