Confirmed: Paul W S Anderson directing Resident Evil 6
Paul W S Anderson is returning once again to the Resident Evil director's chair. Milla Jovovich is back, too...
We're not filing this one as a massive surprise, given that even when's not been directing the Resident Evil movies, he's been overseeing them. But Paul W S Anderson has been confirmed as the director of the now-in-development Resident Evil 6.
A release date for the new movie has already been inked in, with the film set to arrive in cinemas worldwide on or around September 12th 2014. The film wll go before the cameras this autumn, and Anderson has suggested in the past that the sixth movie will round off the cinematic franchise.
Certainly the last film didn't do quite as well as its immediate predecessor. However, Resident Evil: Afterlife still managed to make the small matter of $221m at the worldwide box office, before disc and download revenues were taken into account.
Milla Jovovich will return again too, and we'll have more news on Resident Evil 6 as more is revealed.
