While Sony's Screen Gems is readying another installment of a popular franchise, it's also looking ahead to reboot the franchise as well. Bloody-Disgusting is reporting that after Resident Evil: Afterlife, which is set for an August 27, 2010 release, the studio is looking to reboot the entire franchise.

The film is tentatively titled Resident Evil Begins and the film was described as a "quasi-reboot."

While it's a long, long, long way off, the idea is to redo the story of a special military unit who fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating creatures after a laboratory accident.

We'll certainly keep you posted on any new details about this reboot as soon as we have more information.
