Good news, fans of the Resident Evil films: Sony and Capcom are teaming up to continue the series. Sort of.
Variety reports that the companies are jointly producing Biohazard: Generation, a 3-D CGI feature that will extend the RE mythology. From the article:
Skedded for release in the latter half of 2008, the toon, like the other “Resident Evil” pics, is based on a hit horror game that Shinji Mikami created and Capcom developed for the Sony PlayStation.
The toon will be 3-D CG and based on an original story; the helmer and other cast and crew are yet to be announced.
If this has any impact on the live-action franchise, it hasn’t been revealed. Since its release in September, the third (and supposedly final) RE film, Resident Evil: Extinction, has amassed a $100 million worldwide gross.
