For Resident Evil 6, it’s “studio said/she said/he said.” Sony had penciled in a release date of September 12, 2014 for the sixth chapter in the film series. Then Milla Jovovich took to Twitter stating she thinks the film would bow in 2015.
In a recent interview with director Paul W.S. Anderson, The Star reveals he’ll begin directing Resident Evil 6 (stay tuned for an official title soon) this fall, which means he’ll be moving out of Pompeii and right into Alice’s zombie-filled world right away. It also means the film will hold to its 2014 release date.
Jovovich will return to the series as Alice. No plot details have been revealed at this time.
Seeing as the last installment found Alice standing by Wesker’s side at the White House, facing a landscape overrun by creatures and zombies, you can only imagine where it goes from there.
