‘Resident Evil 6’ Movie Update: Filming to Begin This Fall

Resident Evil Afterlife Milla Jovovich Ali Larter ‘Resident Evil 6’ Movie Update: Filming to Begin This Fall

Some franchises just refuse to die, no matter how ramshackle they become. When said franchise is ostensibly about the undead, the irony is amusing.

Thus is the case with the Resident Evil series – a critically rejected franchise that has nonetheless made great deals of money with each new release. After securing a 2014 release slot and a director in series originator Paul W.S. Anderson (Pompeii), it looks as if the technically-untitled Resident Evil 6 will continue the series’ forward lurch when it begins filming this fall.

The Star has published an interview with Anderson, in which he announces that he will begin actively shooting Resident Evil 6 in the autumn of 2013. This puts the production roughly on track to meet its previously announced September 12th, 2014 debut.

The announcement is a clear ray through a cloud of confusion currently surrounding the film’s actual release date. This is largely due to recent tweets by star Milla Jovovich (The Expendables 3), which indicated that the next Resident Evil movie had been pushed back to 2015. Anderson’s comments seem to refute that assertion.

For the uninitiated, the Resident Evil films follow the badass adventurer Alice (Jovovich) as she navigates a zombie pandemic released by the evil Umbrella Corporation. Based (somewhat loosely) on the video game series of the same name, the Resident Evil franchise has always featured hordes of undead, but has also branched into mutant horrors, psychic powers, clone armies, brain-altering parasites, and all sorts of science fiction-horror weirdness.

Resident Evil Plagas Victim ‘Resident Evil 6’ Movie Update: Filming to Begin This Fall

While the Resident Evil movies have never been well-reviewed, they’ve also become increasingly crowded and nonsensical as the series has progressed. One need only read Screen Rant’s reviews of Resident Evil: Afterlife and Retribution to see that the series is more or less coasting.

As such, it’s difficult to decide whether to regard the news of Resident Evil 6’s production schedule with anticipation or dread. Will this installment finally put a nail in the series’ uneasy coffin? Or will Resident Evil 6 revive not only our faith in its franchise, but also help to evolve zombie horror as a whole? As Anderson states in his interview:

“I think the undead genre really plays to primal human fears… That kind of stuff never goes out of fashion. The themes of a zombie story are always good; they make for good filmmaking.”

We’ll have to wait until at least September of next year to find out whether Anderson’s assertion will pan out.

Resident Evil 6 is currently set to infect theaters on September 12th, 2014 – though this may change in the near future. Stay tuned to Screen Rant for further updates.

    Including new characters for the film:

    This would be epic, maybe have the film split into 2 parts!

  3. I’ve loved all the movies, even number 4 was enjoyable though not as good, and I think people are being way too critical on them. People now a days are too concentrated on being critics. Just watch the movie and if you don’t like then you don’t like it, you don’t have to go everywhere and bad mouth it to everyone. Quite frankly I’m getting tired of all the hate people are spewing everywhere about everything. Can’t anyone say anything nice about anything anymore? Sure the last movie wasn’t nearly as good as the others and had a lot of scenes that seemed to be copied from other movies but nobody has to hear you complain about it. A simple “wasn’t as good as the others, I probably won’t watch it again’ will suffice. I’m actually kind of anticipating the 6th one because I have a feeling it will be the last and I want to see how it all ends. Hopefully it will be better then the latest ones but if it’s not then oh well, I will move on to another movie. No one wants or needs to hear me or anyone else’s negativity toward it, or anything else for that matter. If I want to hear what critics say I will look up a real critic and see what he says. Try being positive for a change people. I can listen to positive feed back all day but this bad mouthing crap is getting seriously annoying and old. Even if you don’t like the movie try to say SOMETHING positive because all this negativity is driving me crazy. Rant over.

    • I agree with everything that you said. People these days are just so hateful with everything whether it’s movies, games, shows, or music. I feel people just love to criticize and judge. I love how people trash talk this series and yet everywhere I go the blue rays and DVDs of these movies are always sold out. I wouldn’t be surprised if the people that hate on this series have bought all the movies. People have been known to bad mouth something and than turn around and buy it anyway. Call of Duty is a perfect example of this. I don’t care what everyone says I love this series and Milla!

    • ehem rotten tomatoes website haha

  4. I knew they would make a new movie and im glad they are. Im one of the few I guess who like the resident evil series. To the critics just enjoy the movie the action, the gore, its awesome. who cares about the so called bad acting you all seem to think. I just hope they find a way to put sadler and Salazar in the movie along with jack krauzer from the resident evil 4 video game. either way I will be one person who will watch this movie either way!

    • How in the frick do you know this? I know that it already began production, so take that to the bank. I watch all the Resident Evil movies at the theater and on TV when the play them every time practically.

  5. Mila herself has confirmed that shooting will NOT be taking place in fall of 2013…

  6. Incredible storylines were posted on a page on Facebook. (Page title: Resident Evil 6: Afterbirth/Armageddon) I visited and like much the storylines (Part 1 and part 2 (2-1/2-2. I want the creative author of it on how he presented the last saga of RE. If I were a director, I will recognize and implement some parts of his works. RE 6 part 1 on 2015 and part2 on 2016. I am happy on sharing this news.

  7. I am a huge fan of resident evil and own anything and everything RE related i loved all the movies granted retribution was not quite as badass as the rest and seemed to repeat the others but it was still good. i for one can’t wait for the 6th movie

  8. I’m a massive fan of the resident evil films and I’m super excited for number 6 but I really do think bringing it out strait after retribution will make the film really bad and one of the biggest reasons for that will be rushing on it and just coming up with a quick and easy story instead of waiting on what the public would want to happen and then come up with an amazing ending to the movies but don’t get me wrong I really want it to come out early :D.
    I fort resident evil retribution was amazing mainly on the acting,opening,animation(the licker) and I loved the theme song :D , so this means number 6 has to be 100 times better especially if its going to be the last one :(.
    An amazing idea that i have for number six would be that at the end alice should die by saving what ever remains of the living also maybe dieing by losing all her blood so cure the whole infection.
    A lot of information there but yeah :).

  10. Somebody actually said that these movies are better than The Walking Dead. I also find it hilarious that the fans keep telling the haters what to do. The movies are God Aweful, but I keep getting tricked by retarded fans who claim these movies are good… Saw the first, skipped the 2nd, got convinced to go see the 3rd, skipped the 4th, and stupidly rented tje 5th. I watched the last movie stoned out of my mind and still couldn’t bear watching 20 minutes of Milla flipping in slo-mo. I played the games, and they suck too. But at least you expect video games to be cheesy at times. These movies are big budget versions of Sharknado… except the director doesn’t realize that hes putting out crap. Must be the pounds of crack he and his wife smoke before filming. Its sad cuz as long as people throw money at this guy, quality wont get any better.

    • Wow! Someone has too much time on their hands.

    • I agree this series is far being better than the Walking Dead by miles, however these movies are not as bad as you claim. Dude, do us fans a favor….STOP YOUR WHINING!!! Seriously, if you don’t like than stop watching. It’s pretty simple, and you insulting people doesn’t make you look intelligent…it makes you look like a jerk and simple minded. There are tons of movies that are WAY worse than this; try watching Blood Rain. I respect that you don’t like it and by all rights you don’t have too, but honestly though get a grip it’s just a movie.

  11. They should give Alice the ability (at the end of the movie) to manipulate time, giving her the means to transport herself to a time before the plague got out and with that, have the power/ability to change the outcome of what brought on this destruction in the first place.

  12. On http://www.facebook.com/RE6MOVIE, two storylines for RE 6 were posted. Part 1 is sublime but I can’t breathe when I finished the part 2, it’s divine. I lovethem so so much.

  13. 4&5 were my fav and the only ones I ever watch.

  14. I watched the now move and thought it was great I think that they should make more and the now characters were good to. me and my grandpa think it is the best movie and Alice was my favorite character it just go’s to show you that women can do great things she is a very powerful character . An sometimes makes you won’t to do that.

  15. I am so looking forwards to this.
    RE 6 YEAH.
    I love these kind of movies, the series wasn`t that bad, as people say.
    There is only on but, I do hope it will to an conclusion with part 6.
    Don`t make a series endless, it will become boring, and that isn`t suposed to be the case.
    End with a BANG.
    I`m all for it.

  16. i hope there’ll be a reboot of this movie, something that is less cliche. Im a fan of the first 3 movies but the 4 and 5 were not so good for me and i hope the 6 installment will end it for good.

  17. I would like the series to keep going on with Milla Jovovich. I don’t want it to end. It’s making good money and that clearly indicates that people, at least a good number of them is interested, so why stop? If others don’t like the film, they can just refrain from watching it.

  18. I found a very interesting free downloadable storyline of Resident evil 6 film. The storyline is totally incredible. Here’s the link to download it. https://app.box.com/s/32yniqx4gxhqrwm4ejjm
    Download it and read. This is just the part 1 and I am waiting for the second part.

  19. I red the stroyline of RE6-Part 2 in this link__ https://app.box.com/s/gv40j5vllym3cjfw2vus. U can download it. i lyk it.

  20. Oh, I’m looking forwards to RE6, if only to say it’s finally being put to rest and can leave the world finally. There’s enough ruining of video games gone on in the Resident Evil Series lately that this anchor doesn’t need to keep dragging it down.

  21. For the love of god add HUNK to this!

  22. I hope that they shoot some part of the film here in the Philippines.

  23. How about getting back to what made the games and the first few movies scary… Zombies! 1 or 2 mutants is fine but now it’s nothing but mutants and over the top action. Nothing scary at all.

  24. If the movies were as bad as the critics claim it is, I sincerely doubt the franchise would be doing as well as it has been. Each new movie has made more money than the last, which for a to show that while the critics may not want to see it, the public does. I am looking forward to the next installment, as the last one felt a bit like the second installment of the matrix.

  25. what about those rumours of angela ashford back in Re6 film? aparently red queen kept her

  26. Honestly I’m getting sick of the final movie being split into two parts, unless it was in a book that would take 5-7 hours to complete in a single movie that had to be split aka Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows & The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn, we don’t need to be pushed into the split movie finale, it’s not worth the effort if it wasn’t wrote in a book, especially if u already knew what the ending was gonna be, so give the fans what they need and want, and that is closure to what happens in the final(if it is the final) installment of the Resident Evil series

  27. Flick jay and silent bob! Flick them in thier flicking a$$’s. Naw jp. Resident evil at least doing alot better at followup than silent hill tried. And hands down zombie movie is zombieland ;-)

  28. I wanna share what i’ve found.
    Resident Evil 6: Resurgence (link: https://app.box.com/s/265pe3s5mombi51r02yw ) on September 2015.
    Resident Evil 7: Redemption (link: https://app.box.com/s/vvly7gkw4exzwdxl5jzl ) unkwon release date.

    I can’t wait for the franchise.

  29. Sadly according to W.S. they don’t even have a script for this yet.
