Resident Evil 4: Afterlife Confirmed for 2010

As previously reported here, it appears Screen Gems and Sony have officially confirmed that we’ll be seeing the fourth installment in the undead “Resident Evil” franchise hit theaters by September 17th, 2010. The confirmation comes from Fangoria, who also says that Milla Jovovich will indeed be back as Alice, the franchise’s main character and star since the first.

The franchise has seen three movies so far: the original in 2002, the sequel, “Resident Evil: Apocalypse” in 2004, and more recently, “Resident Evil: Extinction” in 2007. Apparently calling the last one “Extinction” was premature, because the series will now continue on with “Resident Evil: Afterlife”.

Series producer Paul W.S. Anderson has made noise in the past about being already hard at work writing the script for “Afterlife”, and there are rumors he may return to direct it as well, having previously directed the first movie in the series.

    Indeed this series is moving like a train. Extinction was the best show of suspense and action combined. Milla looks great and capable even with more clothes. Makers aren’t afraid to kill someone and build the plot deeper and deeper.
    The only danger is that this series could flop completely. Then again that’s what the new Batman movies could do with their “we decide if we do another one later” too. Not likely to flop as long as makers are responsible.

      The movies are not suposed to follow the games. The movies are there to supplement the games.

      Just to let you know Capcom gave permission to make these movies and they know that it doesnt follow the game. there is no possible way to follow the game theres to much to it. Its just like X-Men they couldnt follow the comics because of how many there were. So next time get the facts straight. Ok

      • leonnasagawa

        I agree with you but just for the sake of debating I think there is a huge difference between X-men adapted movies and Resident Evil, there are a lot of X-men comics and like you said too much to it but Resident Evil has a lot less when you calculate how many games there are and what each game focuses on with story (eg. 4 and 5 being about Las Plagas and 1 and 3 being about the T-Virus infected zombies).

        I reckon they could have easily adapted the games into a movie and considering that the first game had a good story but very poor almost comedic voice acting it would have been nice to see the games story adapted into a movie.

        Overall though I think these movies are awesome anyway, about an hour ago I finished watching Resident Evil Extinction again.
