Resident Evil: Final Chapter planned as last film in series

Yeah, right

Paul W.S. Anderson is writing a sixth Resident Evil movie (working title, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter) meant to wrap up the money-making film franchise, Collider reports. Anderson is "right in the middle" of writing the first draft, so The Final Chapter is a way's out, with no dates for shooting set. 

We don't know what it will be about, but Anderson says he is writing it as if it is indeed the last movie in the franchise. And paying attention to 3D. Hike up those box office numbers. 

"I firmly believe that you have to start thinking about the 3D even in the writing process," Anderson said. "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."
