The first official one-sheet for [REC] Genesis has arrived, and for whatever reason it reminds us more of the Resident Evil games than any of the posters for the Resident Evil movies. Dig it!
[REC] directors Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero will split directing responsibilities for the next two films in the franchise, [REC] Genesis and [REC] Apocalypse.
Plaza will direct the first film, [REC] Genesis, which will return to the origin of the original infection that caused humans to turn into zombies. The film is expected to be delivered in the autumn of 2011. [REC] Apocalypse will be directed by Balaguero and will end the [REC] saga with the pandemic spreading to unknown proportions. Plaza will assist on the project, which is expected to be delivered in the autumn of 2012.

The action in [REC] GENESIS encompasses the events of the first two films and after the sense of claustrophobia previously experienced. The action now takes place miles away from the original location and partly in broad daylight, giving the film an entirely fresh yet disturbing new reality. The infection has left the building. In a clever twist that draws together the plots of the first two movies, this third part of the saga also works as a decoder to uncover information hidden in the first two films and leaves the door open for the final installment – the future [REC] Apocalypse.
According to Paco Plaza on Twitter the below poster is yet again a fan-made fake. There is no teaser poster yet.
