AQUAMAN Director James Wan Will Produce A RESIDENT EVIL Reboot For Constatin Films And Screen Gems

It's been announced that a new series of Resident Evil movies are in the works, and Aquaman director James Wan is on board to produce the first of them, with Greg Russo on script duties....

It looks like this year's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter really was the last movie in that particular series - however, the franchise is still set to continue.

Variety reports that the first of 6 Resident Evil reboots are in the works at Constatin Films and Screen Gems. Apparently these new movies won't have anything to do with the previous Milla Jovovich-lead pictures, and will feature an entirely new cast. Although a director has yet to be announced, Deadline adds that Aquaman's James Wan will produce, while his old Mortal Kombat collaborator Greg Russo has been hired to write the script.

No plot details are available yet. but fans will no doubt be hoping that these new movies stick a little closer to the stories outlined in the beloved video game series.
