Default Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City (2021)

Quote:


A new Resident Evil movie is in development from Johannes Roberts, the director of 47 Meters Down and its sequel, and The Strangers: Prey at Night.

The subject of the new Resident Evil movie came up when we asked Roberts directly about the director credit for the upcoming reboot at the top of his IMDb page, and what he could tell us about the current stage of production. In addition to stating it would be a film rather than a series, he stated:

ďWe are in active development of that at the moment. I pitched them a take, and they really loved it. So, we are just gearing up on that as we speak, really. Iím in the office all the time there. So, yeah, itís great. Itís gonna be super scary. Itís super, super scary. And itís just getting back to the roots of the game. I think, at the moment, Iím not really allowed to say much more than that. But itís gonna be a lot of fun.Ē

Based on this guy's previous works it looks like this isn't going to be any classier than the previous RES films. Whether it's a good or bad thing is to be seen.

I didn't like 47 Meters Down or The Strangers: Prey at Night so I have very little hope for this one. The other 6 RE movies I at least found enjoyable as mindless zombie/action movies.

I've played eight Resident Evil games, but have never watched any of the movies. It's so weird to me that they are rated so low by IMDB users yet make so much money.

I just don't get it. They HAD Romero ready to go. A faithful adaption of the first game. Ready to go. They drop him for the Paul WS Anderson crap. Now there's another chance and its this doofus?

Prey at Night is absolutely killer, no idea what you chumps are on about.

The words "Resident Evil" and "classy" don't belong with one another at all. That's just not what the franchise is about, never has been, never will be. Even the well-liked franchise entries - RE1 remake, RE4, RE7 and both versions of RE2, for example - are filled with tonnes of insane cheese. Don't get me wrong, I love them, by why anyone ever thinks that a Resi film adaptation is deserving of some horror maestro or something is completely beyond me. They deserve better than the Anderson trash, certainly, but that doesn't mean they suddenly deserve some high-tier immaculate piece of cinema, either.

Silent Hill, maybe, but not Resi.

Haven't seen either of the 47 Meters Down films, but THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT was a fast-paced and quite watchable sequel, replete with effective black humor; hell, it was even visually impressive, sporting nicer cinematography than I would've expected. Roberts strikes me as a director who can deliver some energetic B-movie fun.

Will be curious as to the casting.The first Resident Evil film was a sufficiently entertaining mash-up of ALIENS and DAWN OF THE DEAD, but it was really Milla Jovovich who had me returning to this franchise with every entry right up to RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER. Through all the frequently cheesy silliness, the exotically gorgeous and always game Jovovich performed with straight-faced aplomb and an impressive physical grace that elevated this series considerably (and even at age 40 in the last film, she still looked great and moved well).

She brought so much to the party, gonna miss the hell out of her.

Is there any difference now? The only RE game I played after Code Veronica was 6 and it seemed to want to be a crappy action movie just like those RE films.

I haven't seen the new 47 Meters yet, but wasn't a big fan of the first. I did love The Strangers: Prey At Night though. I'd give this reboot a chance. Might be fun. Can't be any worse than most of the other Resident Evil movies.

The latest RE game, which is a remake of the original RE2, is survival horror at its best. No action piece of sh!t like RE6 or RE5.

If this guy really gets to do it, it will be worse.

such a big fan of the franchise but the films are unwatchable garbage, maybe we can get a horror film this time.

And the same thing happened with this reboot. I believe they initially had James Wan, the current-day horror guru, tabbed to direct, but they dropped him for this guy.

Heís still attached as a producer, though, so maybe, just maybe it wonít suck and/or deviate from the games too much?
