Resident Evil 5 on the way

Resident Evil

Resident Evil: Afterlife just opened number one at the US box office, despite lukewarm critical response, so it’s no surprise that another flick in the profitable franchise is being considered.

Mrs Resident Evil Milla Jovovich spoke with Vulture , and confirmed that Screen Gems are looking to her to continue the horror franchise with a fifth entry.

“This new Resident Evil is the first one to ever open at No. 1 worldwide. It's the biggest movie in the franchise,” she says. “So we're definitely going to make another one.”

Handily, the fourth Evil entry ended on a cliffhanger that could easily set up the next flick – and it seems director Paul W.S. Anderson already has ideas for the fifth Evil entity. But could this be the first interactive sequel?

“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.”

Whether you’re a fan of the undead franchise or not, better get used to it being around – it’s resolutely refusing to die.
