Have you ever watched a movie and thought, ‘i could’ve come up with that’? I know I have, and its not as if there isn’t enough concepts out there — because quite frankly theres enough original material out on the net to cook up a silver-screen storm.
But theres just no interest from writers and directors, which is a shame because judging by some previous work such as the mighty Bay himself — he could have used it (re: Transformers 2)
But if your the faithful few who still cling on to hope and post your heart content of ideas for upcoming releases – and pray that the big men themselves read them and actually take it then I applaud you!
Because although it sounds like a fairy-tale, it seems that hearty fans of the zombie-crunching Resident Evil series may have there dreams come true as director Paul W.S. Anderson will be turning to the fans for writing for the next sequel, Resident Evil 5 (not to be confused with the game franchise).
While this is some big news in itself, I think to underline it — the news that a fifth film is already being geared up is relatively big. And who better to spill the beans than the zombie-slaying she-devil Alice herself.
In an interview with New York Magazine, franchise lead Milla Jovovich (who plays main protagonist Alice in the films) said that director Anderson – who also happens to be the stars spouse – will be turning to his fans through social media sites for sequel-material following the upcoming release of Resident Evil: Afterlife. “So we’re definitely going to make another one,” says Jovovich revealing, “We’ve been talking to a lot of fans on Twitter and stuff, so it’s probably going to be one of the first movies where we really talk to fans to see what they want, and what characters they want to see. It’s going to be a more interactive process.”
Anderson as we know, is hugely passionate towards the RE series — both the films and games. A passion it seems he shares with his wife of one and a half years, and even though he hasn’t got the greatest track record I still think that what he’s done and doing for the series is monumental — but the last movie in the series nearly curbing my already slim faith in director W.S. Anderson.
But rest assured that Anderson, although not so great, has been working hard on re vamping the series so to speak with this new RE: Afterlife being the first in the series to reach number one in the US. And its certainly great to see the directors turing to the fans all of a sudden, because its the right thing to do when it comes to a such fan based franchise such as Resident Evil. Thats it from me and Resident Evil 5, stay tuned for more!
