Resident Evil getting a reboot?

The Final Chapter is in the can and now out on Blu Ray and Digital.  So, with this 6th installment and to me the worst, it seems Paul W.S. Anderon’s Resident Evil series is over.  This is a good thing for fans of the video game series that started everything back in the mid-1990s.  The film series was far away from the game series in story telling.  We would get to see some of the characters we loved from the games as well as the monsters.  But there were too many miscasts and the story itself was a jumbled mess.

News came out of Cannes with Martin Moszkowicz, chairman of the board at Constantin Film, did confirm to Variety that a reboot is in development.

With this, there is no telling where they will go, or who they will turn to.  One of the members here at the Horror Syndicate suggests a Netflix series that closely follows the games, from the outbreak at the mansion in the original game, all the way in to Raccoon City.  I am for this idea and if Sony and Constantin Films are looking for writers, let me know.

What direction would you like to see the Resident Evil franchise go?  Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.

I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
