Milla Jovovich Threatens That Another Resident Evil is Coming
The weekend just ended with the awful looking Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D winning the box office, so what better time for the hype machine to start rolling for another unnecessary sequel in the tired and cartoonish video game franchise adaptation. Vulture has the scoop from franchise star (and wife of director Paul W.S. Anderson) Milla Jovovich who says, "we're definitely going to make another one." Apparently Anderson already has ideas for Resident Evil 5 and if the Executioner's coin spilling body is any indicator (I don't care if Alice loaded a gun with coins previously) we're in for plenty more ridiculous shit to numb the skull.
Jovovich exclaims: "This new Resident Evil is the first one to ever open at No. 1 worldwide. It's the biggest movie in the franchise." It's not hard since literally nothing else of any spectacular quality had a wide release this weekend, and any other movies worth watching have been out for over a month now and thus past their theatrical prime. Of course, it's only the very worst part of the moviegoing (and video game lovin') audience going to see these movies and it's essentially the bastard gaming cousin of the Saw franchise at this point.
Oh, and remember how I said that Anderson already has some ideas for yet another flick? Well, Jovovich says that he wants the audience's ideas for the movie, too. Uh oh. She adds: "We've been talking to a lot of fans on Twitter and stuff, so it's probably going to be one of the first movies where we really talk to fans to see what they want, and what characters they want to see. It's going to be a more interactive process." Does anyone actually want to work with Paul W.S. Anderson (let alone via Twitter)? That's what I thought. I don't know how anyone thinks that's a good idea, but then again, I'm not even sure it matters anymore.
