Milla Jovovich Resident 6 Evil Final Chapter
It's been two years since the last film in the "Resident Evil" franchise, and we now have official word on the new sequel's status from the series' writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson. In an interview for Collider, the filmmaker revealed that the upcoming installment will be the last one, and it will be titled "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter". A bit obvious, in my opinion, but fitting. Anderson also revealed that he is currently writing the first draft for The Final Chapter and that there is no official start date for shooting. Also, a release date is definitely out of the question at this point. Furthermore, Anderson hinted that the film could be shot in 3D.

Here are some excerpts from his interview:
"Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the working title. It may end up being the final title, but that’s what’s written on the front page of my script… I’m right in the middle of [the first draft].

There are no set dates for shooting yet. I think we’re waiting until we have a first draft screenplay and then go from there.

I don’t know [when it will be in theaters], depends how fast I write, I guess. There’s no set date yet but hopefully we’ll have an announcement for that soon.

That’s what’s on the title page, it’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, so absolutely.

I firmly believe that you have to start thinking about the 3D even in the writing process. You cannot make a great 3D movie by just—it’s not some special sauce that you can sprinkle on. You make the dish and then you make hot sauce on top—it doesn’t work well like that. Yes, you can do a last minute conversion. You can not shoot the movie thinking about 3D and do a last minute conversion and it can be a 3D movie, it’s just not gonna be a great 3D movie. I approach my films right from the inception, I kind of write action scenes and pick out locations that I think and know—because I’ve done so much of it—will translate very well into 3D. Then when we build the sets, we build sets that I know will shoot well in 3D. It’s really, even from this point, 3D is something I’m definitely thinking about. "
