Capcom is joining forces with Marza Animation Planet for the next feature-film length CG Resident Evil film slated for a 2017 worldwide release. This new CG film will join 2008's Resident Evil: Degeneration and 2012's Resident Evil: Damnation.
There have been previous Resident Evil CG movies, but this is a complete reboot, reports kotaku.com, and this movie will feature the characters Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield, and Rebecca Chambers. More news on this is in the pipeline.
Meanwhile, apart from the CG film, with five feature films released otherwise, the Resident Evil film series is the highest grossing film series to be based on video games of all time, having grossed US$915 million worldwide. It is set to conclude in January 2017, with a sixth film, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, written and directed by Anderson.
digitaltrends.com had, in April 2014, cited Anderson speaking at the Beijing International Film Festival about the upcoming sixth installment of the franchise. He indicated that Chinese actress Bingbing Li will return as Ada Wong after her debut in 2012's Resident Evil: Retribution. Milla Jovovich is also said to be starring in this film again as zombie slayer Alice.
Sony Pictures' Screen Gems had said in September 2015 that Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has commenced principal photography in South Africa, in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Here's the official plot synopsis:
"Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity's final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began â€“ Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella's impending attack, this will be Alice's most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion."
