Resident Evil 6 has found a working title. Resident Evil 6, for better or worse, is going to happen. One of the most profitable horror franchises in movie history can not stay dead for long. The franchise primary writer, director, and creator Paul W.S. Anderson is busy working on the film’s script but there is no word yet on its storyline. One thing is a certainty: it will be 3D-centric and written with 3D in mind. Its working title is Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, formerly Resident Evil: Rising.
Paul W.S. Anderson had this to say about the current state of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter‘s script and 3D:
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the working title. It may end up being the final title, but that’s what’s written on the front page of my script… I’m right in the middle of the first draft.There are no set dates for shooting yet. I think we’re waiting until we have a first draft screenplay and then go from there.
I don’t know when it will be in theaters, depends how fast I write, I guess. There’s no set date yet but hopefully we’ll have an announcement for that soon.
I firmly believe that you have to start thinking about the 3D even in the writing process. You cannot make a great 3D movie by just—it’s not some special sauce that you can sprinkle on. You make the dish and then you make hot sauce on top—it doesn’t work well like that. Yes, you can do a last minute conversion. You can not shoot the movie thinking about 3D and do a last minute conversion and it can be a 3D movie, it’s just not gonna be a great 3D movie. I approach my films right from the inception, I kind of write action scenes and pick out locations that I think and know—because I’ve done so much of it—will translate very well into 3D. Then when we build the sets, we build sets that I know will shoot well in 3D. It’s really, even from this point, 3D is something I’m definitely thinking about.
