The Milla Jovovich Resident Evil movie series may be nearing its conclusion with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (currently filming in South Africa) due out in February 2017 but that won’t mean the end of cinematic outings for the franchise, apparently.
According to Japanese website Inside, Capcom is teaming with Marza Animation Planet to produce a computer animated Resident Evil movie, set for release in 2017. Takashi Shimizu (Ju-On) is executive producer on the film which Takanori Tsujimoto will direct, from a script by Moakoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass).
The story will feature Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield, and Rebecca Chambers but will have no connection to the Jovovich/Paul WS Anderson film series other than being inspired by the same games.
