Aquaman helmer James Wan may not be producing the Resident Evil reboots that were announced in 2017, but that hasn’t thusfar brought cause for concern. 47 Meters Down helmer Johannes Roberts is penning a script from which he’ll so far direct as far as plans go as of early December, so for now, keep an eye out for those updates if you wish to keep all your corporate skullduggery and zombie-killing on the big screen…
That’s unless you prefer to share that bit of excitement at home in which case, Netflix has your back. Plans are underway for a new series at the streaming service along with the involvement of Germany-based Constantin Film who are now in search of a showrunner.
Constantin had a hand in producing the $1.2 billion dollar sci-fi action horror hexalogy starring Jovovich as nomadic superhuman warrior, Alice, who, among a revolving door of badasses, fought swarms of zombies originally sparked by the outbreak of a biochemical virus housed at a facility branded under the Umbrella Corporation.
The drama series will explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus.
The initial film franchise (2002 to 2017) takes its cues from the 1996 Capcom video game which currently has 27 installments. Director Paul W.S. Anderson, who wrote all six films and directed four, and has since moved on with Jovovich once more for the current video game adaptation, Monster Hunter, also starring Tony Jaa and Ron Perlman.
