As a fan of Milla Jovovich, the news that the Resident Evil film franchise may get a fourth installment makes me incredibly happy.
I was a latecomer to the Resident Evil movies, catching the first one a full five years after it was released. After watching it I couldn’t believe I had missed it, and couldn’t wait to see the sequels. Milla Jovovich is a fantastic action actress (making even the dull Ultraviolet at least entertaining at times) and Alice is a compelling character.
The end of the third movie, Resident Evil: Extinction, was left wide open for a sequel, and even had the beginnings of a plotline.
The MTV Movies Blog spoke with the RE writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson who says a fourth film is likely. In an encouraging quote, Anderson says,
I love the Resident Evil franchise and we always try to make the best possible movie we can. If we could find a good Resident Evil 4 to make, then we would do it. But I wouldn’t just do it for the sake of it, that’s for sure.
For now, we can rewatch the previous three movies on Blu-ray or check out the couple of films Milla has coming out in 2009.
