Last year's Resident Evil: Afterlife grossed an impressive $296 million worldwide, the highest of any movie in the franchise, and proved that Paul W.S. Anderson's return to the Resident Evil director's chair was a successful move (of course, the 3-D surcharge probably didn't hurt, either).
The fifth installment, Resident Evil: Retribution, is due out next year, with Anderson back behind the camera for a third time. Star Milla Jovovich has already been active on her Twitter announcing castings, stunt choreography details and, even, a spoiler or two, including a reveal that Retribution would include the "Las Plagas parasite". a rolls royce in an action scene? >> Posted 10.04.11 by Ryan

It's hard to believe that Resident Evil and Death Race director Paul W.S. Anderson has "always wanted" to make an adaptation of The Three Musketeers, but that's precisely what he reveals in a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming movie.
Anderson won't be adding zombies or car chases to 17th-century France, but he has made his mark on the material. When the first trailer for The Three Musketeers revealed Anderson's 3-D action-oriented take, the writer-director maintained that his version was still "exactly the story of The Three Musketeers" just told "in a slightly different way." When the second trailer revealed giant sailing vessels attached to hot-air balloons, however, it proved that Anderson was indeed taking liberties. In an interview with MTV, he explained where the inspiration came for the airships. watch the featurette and read more of Anderson's comments >> Posted 09.09.11 by Ryan
The first trailer for The Three Musketeers made it clear Paul W.S. Anderson was going to take a few liberties with Alexandre Dumas's literary classic. Then the second trailer revealed sailing ships connected to hot air balloons, proving that no one should watch the movie for help with a book report. Now we have a TV spot that seems to posit a fourth musketeer in the form of Milady de Winter (Milla Jovovich). watch the tv spot >> Posted 08.30.11 by Ryan
Yesterday, we reported that the fifth installment in the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Retribution, was set to start production in Toronto and Tokyo on October 10. With Milla Jovovich more or less confirmed, what wasn't known was whether Paul W.S. Anderson would return to direct. Now, news comes via Bloody Disgusting that the duo will be reprising their respective roles in front of and behind the camera. who won't be coming back? >> Posted 08.11.11 by Ryan
The next installment of the Resident Evil franchise is reportedly heading in front of cameras, though who's charge is still in question.
Sony Screen Gems set a September 14, 2012, release date for Resident Evil: Retribution, otherwise known as Resident Evil 5, back in March. Now ShockTillYouDrop reports that the sequel will start production on October 10, with shooting to take place in Toronto and Tokyo. An October production start sounds about right if the sequel is going to make it to theaters on time, but gives the studio just a few months to find a director. will anderson direct? >> Posted 08.09.11 by Ryan
Shortly after last year's Resident Evil: Afterlife had the biggest opening weekend for a Resident Evil movie yet, Milla Jovovich confirmed a fifth installment and revealed that she and husband Paul W.S. Anderson — who wrote and produced all four Resident Evil movies and directed Afterlife and the 2002 original — were going to employ a "interactive process," allowing fans to give them advice through "Twitter and stuff." True to her word, Jovovich took to her Twitter account to update fans about Resident Evil 5 (RE 5) and fielded questions about the sequel.
With Anderson recently landing the director's chair for the historical disaster movie Pompeii, it seemed that his involvement in RE 5 might be limited or even non-existent. Jovovich informed fans that Anderson is hard at work on the sequel. Anderson watching the video games >> Posted 05.16.11 by Ryan
Right after Resident Evil: Afterlife enjoyed a successful opening weekend when it became the first Resident Evil movie to go No. 1 worldwide, franchise star Milla Jovovich confirmed that another Resident Evil sequel was a "definite." Almost six months later, Resident Evil 5 has a release date.
ComingSoon reports that Sony Screen Gems has scheduled Resident Evil 5 for a September 14, 2012, release date. Whether Jovovich's husband, Paul W.S. Anderson will be involved is unknown, though considering he has produced and penned the screenplay for all four Resident Evil movies and directed both Afterlife and the 2002 original, it's hard to think that Anderson won't be involved. It's also probably safe to assume that Resident Evil 5 will arrive in 3-D, considering the boost it gave Afterlife.
Arriving a month after Resident Evil 5 is George Clooney's political thriller The Ides of March, based on Beau Willimon's play Farragut North. Clooney is directing the movie and stars opposite Ryan Gosling, who plays an idealistic staffer who learns a lesson about dirty politics as he works for a new political candidate (Clooney) on the campaign trail. Willimon loosely based his play on the 2004 Democratic primary campaign of Howard Dean.
THR reports that Sony will open The Ides of March on October 14, 2012. Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood co-star. Posted 03.05.11 by Ryan
After winning the weekend at the box office, Resident Evil: Afterlife has assured that the Resident Evil franchise will continue. Milla Jovovich confirmed the sequel to The New york Post's Vulture blog.

This new Resident Evil is the first one to ever open at No. 1 worldwide. It’s the biggest movie in the franchise. So we’re definitely going to make another one.
Looks like writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson is getting a little more time for his adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' classic novel, The Three Musketeers. ComingSoon reports that the movie is being pushed back six months from its April 15, 2011, release date to October 14, 2011. Duncan Jones's follow-up to Moon, the sci-fi thriller Source Code will take the April 15 date instead.
Anderson is currently shooting the period adventure movie in Germany, with set photos featuring Logan Lerman as D'Artagnan and Mads Mikkelssen as the villain Rochefort finding their way online last month. A new teaser poster soon followed, though the poster lacks a little something in the way of visuals. Milla Jovovich on the perils of stunt work in a corset >> Posted 09.10.10 by Ryan
