Sixth Resident Evil film coming, tentatively titled 'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter'

A sixth Resident Evil film is in the works and is currently called Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, said series director and producer Paul W.S. Anderson in an interview with Collider.

Anderson said that he's currently writing a first draft of the script, and the producers will start to figure out a shooting schedule once the draft is done. Because of that, there's also no release date yet. The screenplay is being written with 3D in mind; Anderson plans to shoot in 3D, instead of doing a post-production conversion to 3D.

"I approach my films right from the inception, I kind of write action scenes and pick out locations that I think and know — because I've done so much of it — will translate very well into 3D," Anderson told Collider. "Then when we build the sets, we build sets that I know will shoot well in 3D. It's really, even from this point, 3D is something I'm definitely thinking about."

Asked if the working title means that this is planned to be the final entry in the Resident Evil movie franchise, Anderson said, "That's what's on the title page, it's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, so absolutely."

The most recent Resident Evil film was 2012's Resident Evil: Retribution, which grossed more than $240 million worldwide. Taken together, all five movies in the series have pulled in nearly $916 million.
