After the huge box office takings* of the mind-bogglingly dull RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE 3D, production marches forward on yet another installment.
Milla Jovovich revealed on Twitter that the plans are to shoot the fifth entry in Japan, an odd decision considering, y’know, the catastrophic earthquakes and stuff?
Milla tweeted: "I pray 4 Japan everyday and I can't wait 2 go there and shoot the next Re!"
I’m sure they’ll be ecstatic to see you too, Milla.
I can hardly believe I’m about to type this, but I’m actually saddened they aren’t going with the previously rumoured reboot route. Paul W. S. Anderson’s franchise is now so unrecognizable compared to the original source material that it’s surely time for somebody else to have a go and return the story to its roots. 90 minutes of Milla performing sub-par MATRIX action-riffs doesn't hold a candle to the horror aesthetic of even the first RE videogame in 1996.
*an astounding $290 million worldwide!
