The Resident Evil franchise is one of the most successful games-to-film adaptations in terms of financial outcomes. Critically the films may not have fared that well, but in terms of popularity and earnings they’ve done pretty well. According to reports, the director of the franchise Paul W.S. Anderson will start up with the 6th installment sometime this year.
He has talked about the film at the Beijing International Film Festival. There were also rumors last year that said the film will release this year, but it is unlikely as a script is yet to be finalized for the movie.
Resident Evil: Retribution was the fifth and the most recent entry in the series, earning around $221 million.
