Details about the upcoming sixth installment in the smash hit Resident Evil film franchise have been extremely scant in recent months so we here at Dread have been hungry for any info we can get our hands on. Today we’ve got a little something-something for ya so read on for the latest!
Per CCTV, Paul W.S. Anderson recently revealed some details about Resident Evil 6 at the ongoing Beijing International Film Festival, where he was on hand to discuss the future of 3D technology.
Not only did he tell the audience that the impending sixth installment will most definitely be in 3D, but he confirmed that actress Li Bingbing will appear in the film, reprising her Resident Evil: Retribution role of character Ada Wong.
“I have to go home tomorrow for ‘Rising Resident Evil.’ That’s what I’m going to do. As you know, Bingbing is in the last movie, and she will be there again… After Resident Evil I want to come to China and shoot film again,” said Anderson.
We had previously learned that the film would be titled Resident Evil: Rising so it seems likely that’s still the plan, and the title was simply lost in translation.
Whatever it’s called, Resident Evil 6 will be written and directed by Anderson, and Milla Jovovich will be returning as Alice. It could potentially be the final film in the franchise, which Anderson plans on neatly wrapping up.
