Resident Evil Reboot Rumour Confirmed

Will happen after Resident Evil 4: Afterlife


More crazy reboot news from the Hollywoods, this time targeting a perfectly healthy franchise rather than a long dead shambles of a mockery, like The Fantastic Four.

That's right, Resident Evil, the series based on the popular video games that stars Milla Jovovich as a mysterious survivor of a zombie apocolypse, is set for a complete rethink with the tentatively titled Resident Evil Begins.

Confirmed by the jolly fellows over at, the idea is to stop the continuing series after Resident Evil 4 next summer, and redo the story of a special military unit fighting an murderous supercomputer and an army of flesh eating former scientists.

Sound familiar? Whatever the reason, be it Milla Jovovich's going rate or the lack of ideas for sequels, it certainly seems a little soon after the original, released as it was way back in 2002, for a reboot.

What do you think? Madness? Utter insanity? Let us know.

      Yes, madness & utter insanity. The studio's should maybe try and think of some original ideas.

      Sounds like a prequel not a reboot

      The resident evil movies are an utter pile of sh!t and should never of been made. Get the guy in who did the silent hill movie as he captured exactly what silent hill was about, resident evil was nothing like the games with the exception of character names. Im glad its having a re-think

      Agree with T12AV15 110% - the films IMO had nothing in common with the games other than the names and basic premise, they were a total disappointment and lacked any of the suspense and horror captured so perfectly in the original game. I know many fans of the games and hardly any are fans of the films, which says it all. It is a different story for Silent Hill however, which was translated quite faithfully to the big screen. This is good news, I just hope they get a decent director and give it the Batman reboot treatment.

      Hopefully they make it a horror movie and not another pile of action dung.

      im on a film course at university and the other day i actually said to my friend i want to do my own resident evil film starting over. to make up the appaulingness that has ruined the games reputation. maybe a thriller/ horror rather then a sucky action film. take it back to its elements.

      A reboot does make sense, they could at least try and make a film that remotely resembles the video game series at least.

      So they're making a reboot after number 4? Why not just start over now and save the money. Everyone knows it's gonna suck. But let say they do make it after number 4, how long before we actually see this reboot? Hardly worth talkin about at this stage.
