Resident Evil 5 Confirmed, Will Ask Fans for Help
Posted 09.13.10 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.
Jovovich says that the fifth installment won't come strictly from the mind of her husband, writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson, who wrote all four movies, but hadn't directed since the 2002 original.
We’ve been talking to a lot of fans on Twitter and stuff, so it’s probably going to be one of the first movies where we really talk to fans to see what they want, and what characters they want to see. It's going to be a more interactive process.
The Resident Evil franchise has always been polarizing for fans of the Capcom video game, so it should be interesting to see what fans will say about a sequel. Considering the end of Afterlife charts a particular course for a sequel, there may be little that fans can contribute to the story Anderson may already have in mind other than finally introducing game character Leon S. Kennedy.
Afterlife is currently in theaters and also stars Ali Larter and Boris Kodjoe.
