No, the subtitle for the fifth Resident Evil movie won't be It's Happening (at least, I'm fairly certain that it won't be.) What I mean is that a fifth Resident Evil movie is now a certainty after Resident Evil: Afterlife opened to a commanding $26.6 million dollars. That's the best opening for the zombie gamerflick franchise in its cinema history.
So how do I know for sure that RE5 is going to happen? Two words: Milla Jovovich. "This new Resident Evil is the first one to ever open at No. 1 worldwide. It's the biggest movie in the franchise," the model-turned-actress told Vulture yesterday, probably while grinning from ear to ear. Not even Sigourney Weaver in her Alien franchise had this kind of good will at the top of Ripley's game. "So we’re definitely going to make another one." There you go. Proof.
Look, it's not like Paul W.S. Anderson is going to leave this franchise behind until it drops down on the floor and stays dead for good. Jovovich is married to the auteur and unless their relationship goes south, there will be a Resident Evil 5. And 6. And 7. And then the reboot.
The funny thing about what comes next is that Anderson wants to get new ideas from the fans online. "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."
Like seeing Milla kill zombies in good quality 3D wasn't?
