In May 2017, a Resident Evil film reboot was reliable to be in growth by Constantin Films, with a book done by Greg Russo and filmmaker James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring, Aquaman). Curiously, they’re both also operative on an arriving Mortal Kombat film reboot.
In an talk published final week on Discussing Film, Greg Russo mentioned carrying been desirous by a Resident Evil 7 (which was also a reboot going towards an wholly new instruction for a franchise) while penning a script.
Obviously I’m a outrageous fan of a authorization so to work on that was a lot of fun. And they’ve done 6 films before so when we come behind to that and reboot it, we wanna do something opposite and not only rehash. For me it was unequivocally transparent cut that we wanted to go behind and make it frightful again like a fear film in terms of a classical James Wan character so that was a pitch, going behind and looking what done a games frightful in a initial place so approval Resident Evil 7 was a bit of a norm for my draft.
Not to contrition a strange film authorization that was made, we consider that did unequivocally well, [but] when we emanate a uninformed reboot and demeanour during a over a tip movement of a Paul Anderson franchise, it was fun and unequivocally cold though during a finish of a day, for me as a fan of a strange diversion franchise, we always deliberate a authorization to be fear during a forefront and movement as a delegate feature. So it only done clarity to go behind to a fear roots.
There’s no recover date nonetheless for a now untitled Resident Evil film reboot, though we’ll make certain to keep we updated once some-more sum are revealed. Meanwhile, Paul W.S. Anderson, executive of a prior Resident Evil movies, is operative on a Monster Hunter film.
