Could Resident Evil find new life on the small screen?

After six post-apocalyptic thrillers in only 10 years, writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson brought the curtain down on Alice’s storied saga with The Final Chapter, a conclusive, albeit underwhelming finale to one of the most beloved action series of the past decade.

That was back in 2016, and since then, Constantin Films has been plotting a big-screen revival of Resident Evil, one which will see the light of day through James Wan (The Conjuring, Aquaman) and Mortal Kombat screenwriter Greg Russo. But at least according to studio boss Martin Moszkowicz, that reboot may wind up becoming a full-blown TV series, as the Powers That Be look to find a new story angle now that Alice’s saga has ostensibly come to an end.

When asked about the possibility of Resident Evil shuffling onto the small screen, Moszkowicz told Variety the following:

For us, the main thing is to get it right creatively so people don’t think it’s more of the same. That’s what it’s all about these days, a fresh, different approach.

One thing’s for sure: Paul W.S. Anderson won’t be involved in the gestating reboot, regardless of what form it takes, as he’s already signed on to his follow-up gig: Monster Hunter. In fact, Anderson’s live-action rendition of the venerable Capcom franchise will also feature former Resident Evil mainstay, Milla Jovovich, so you can forget about any future RE collaborations from the real-life couple.

Said Moszkowicz:

He did six movies, earning $1.2 billion, 10 years of work; he felt it was time to move on.

It’s a little disappointing, of course, given Anderson and Jovovich helped steer the Resident Evil franchise for 10 long years. But their absence presents Constantin Films with perhaps the most exciting opportunity of all: a fresh start. More on this story as it develops.
