News from across the Atlantic – quite literally in fact as I read this tidbit regarding the Resident Evil movies on the twenty hour flight back to the UK.
The latest issue of Geek magazine has an interview with Paul W.S. Anderson, writer and director on the Resident Evil movies and husband of Milla Jojovich, star of the films.
Anderson reveals that the fifth and sixth Resident Evil movies were almost filmed back to back but they decided to concentrate on the fifth film, “If it’s decided we do make another one I know where it will go,” he said, “It would be great to make two full trilogies and just bring everything to an end.”
The writer tells the magazine that Capcom visit the set of each movie and also revealed that the flow of ideas between the games and the movies now works in both directions.
The Hummer and motorbike chase from Resident Evil 5 (the game) has inspired a chase in Resident Evil 5 (the film), Anderson added “When we filmed Extinction some people were up in arms as we were in the desert and it was daylight. Two years later Resident Evil 5 came out and was set in daylight and in the desert, Capcom took that from our movie as they liked the way it looked.”
The film is being heavily promoted in the U.S. and looks set to do well at the box office, check out the latest trailer above which reveals yet another twist to the ongoing story of Alice.
Also it looks bloody awesome.
