‘Resident Evil 4’ in the Works?

Will there be more of Alice and the Umbrella Corporation in the future? Director Paul W.S. Anderson hopes so. MTV Movies Blog recently chatted with Anderson who revealed that initial plans for Resident Evil 4 are in the works.

"I'm just starting to talk to Sony about it," Anderson said. "I don't even know if anything will come of it, but there's a possibility it might happen."

Anderson did say that coming up with another story is what is hindering the film's development process.

"I love the 'Resident Evil' franchise and we always try to make the best possible movie we can. If we could find a good Resident Evil 4 to make, then we would do it," he said. "But I wouldn't just do it for the sake of it, that's for sure."

The first three films grossed $379 million combined worldwide and were also solid performers on DVD.

Resident Evil: Afterlife was released September 10th, 2010.

    Oh and vampire 2000..ur a dumbass. Re4 the game was the best game ever to come out until 5. So what if they werent zombies, it would have been to easy for Leon to kill zombies, he was too good at that stage.

      I liked the first film but once they made alice "super human" that was it, a big factor of RE is survival and fear, alice was up for fighting nemesis and managed to get him to remember who he and she was, if they tried that in the Resident evil 3 game, nemesis would rocket launch u to bits...I think they ruined him in apocalypse, and i think if they are to make a new film they should get rid of alice and bring in Chris,leon or maybe brin back jill. Wha dye think?

          "WAT UP" I think the movie would'nt be the same if alice was'nt in it.Reason being is she kicked ass from the first movie to the 3rd.It's like halloween 3 it had nothing to do with the movie,SUCKED BIG TIME!!!

                    Here are the rumors I heard: They've begun shooting the movie in Alaska with Ali Larter last year. Now that Milla Jovovich gave birth they will resume shooting the film. Jensen Ackles will be playing Leon Kennedy. It's set to be released during the Summer of 2010. Jason O'Mara will be back to play Albert Wesker. And Ada Wong will make her debut finally.

                    The fourth installment takes off where Resident Evil: Extinction ended in Japan.

                          Sequel to Resident Evil: Extinction. Why would they have videogame news on a movie website? Also, what do you mean she didn't get enough screen time in Resident Evil: Apocalypse? She was there for almost the entire movie. I think you really need to rewatch these movies dude.

                              okay because I remember that Jill Valentine was always the main chick but from then on I have no idea. Jill didn't get enough screen time in Apocalypse

                                No a HARD CORE Resident Evil fan doesn't agree. That's me. I like Alice. Her name was not Alice, it was Alexia. Alexia Ashford. So that's also a no, Slim.

                                  I can tell you that Alice has no part in any of the games i think her charecter ruined the movie. hard core resident evil fans would probably agree. i say get rid of Alice bring back Jill she is smokin hot. i really cant remember but i think the main bad guy of RE code veronica was named Alice she mutated into a dragonfliy

                                          Kind of a shallow reason to hate the movie isn't it?
