Paul Anderson Writing Resident Evil 4 Soon

44 Comments

Apparently “Resident Evil 4″ has gone from a “maybe” to a “probably”, at least if Paul W.S. Anderson has anything to say about it. Not all that long ago, Anderson went public with the news that he was currently talking to the studio about doing a fourth “Resident Evil” movie, but that nothing had come from it. Yet. That appears to have changed. Anderson, currently in the UK promoting his futuristic remake “Death Race”, is saying that he will begin writing “Resident Evil 4″ very soon.

Via Horror-movies.ca:

Paul W.S. Anderson was recently in the UK promoting his new film their Death Race. While he was talking to the Sunday Sun he mentioned, “I’m writing an adaptation of the Long Good Friday right now, set in present-day Miami. Then I will probably write Resident Evil 4.”

Of course, this is either good news or bad news, depending on how you approach movies with the name “Paul W.S. Anderson” stamped anywhere around it. I happen to think the man has a lot of talent, but that he always finds ways to, well, stop just short of being really, really good. All of his movies have the same potential, but for one reason or another, they just never seem to get over the hump.

In any case, “Resident Evil 4″ is probably on the way. There’s just no good reason not to do it, especially considering the box office take of the previous three films. I wasn’t exactly thrilled with the last movie, in particular the seemingly “passing of the torch” subplot from Alice to Claire that, in true Anderson fashion, didn’t seem to go anywhere.

Below: “So, ah, what’s the deal with the ‘passing of the torch’ there, Milla”?

    I was into the Games as a kid then a teen, but now that i have a family i make sure to see the movie’s. MY biggest thing Was at the END of the 3rd movie was ( WHAT TH’ H**L ) the same as Markus K posted above. It would of been better if they had the 4th move ready to Rock soon after the 3rd. It just left us hanging !

    I actually kind of liked 1,2,and 3, It keeps to somewhat the game, But it keeps me watching. If it was Just like the game I would not care to see it !!!! Ive played and watched the games be played enulf in one life time.

    I am Confused tho.. and would someone like to sheed some light on this:
    What is the 4th movies Name?? Dont tell me its going to be a cartoon !!
    I see the trailer called Degeneration all over the web. They just need to finish what they started in part3 first!! then keep going with the cartoons. If i want to watch a cartoon i would, But if i want to watch a Movie, I WANT A real MOVE!

    Most of Us that started Playing the First Game was back in the 9 or 10th Grade, and if i rember correct it was on the old Playstation. Now that group of teens are in there late 20s to early 30s, Granted we are still young But That would be a Very Big disappointment if part 4 was a cartoon !!!

    Okay…this is going to stop right NOW PAUL ANDERSON!!! i dont know what your thinking but this is going to stop! I will not see a next Resident evil movie made by you, you have destroyed the entire series of resident evil, you mix up all the characters from the games and make Nemesis a good guy!! WTF!!? you cant freaking do that and why do carlos die i third movie?? Why did he die?? he was awesome :’( and he look like chris redfield and why are jill and carlos not in the same movie?? And jill? oh man she not even look like the jill from the games. Man you fuck the hole up on that, from now on let Capcom make the Resident evil movies, just look at Resident evil Degeneration. Man that was a real resident evil movie with characters you know and like, if you ever make are resident evil 4 and make alex have a army of super clones of her self, will i just say this ahem…YOU ARE GOING TO HELL FOR THAT!! and if you let clarie die in the i will freaking kill myself! For thats the only person beside carlos that i really like.
    But dont make are 4 movie, its going to suck even if you put leon in it and other stuff, it will suck for you have made 3 other movies thats suck balls. So stop make the resident evil movie and let Capcom do that or Peter Jackson, i think he will make are better movie of resident evil, and it will be a lot better when all your resident evil films together.
