Resident Evil Reboot Taps Johannes Roberts to Write, Direct

The six Resident Evil movies so far were Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Resident Evil: Extinction, Resident Evil: Afterlife, Resident Evil: Retribution, and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Of course, the property is still worth money, so that means it's time for a reboot!

Resident Evil's movie reboot has signed up Johannes Roberts as its director and writer, Variety has confirmed. Rather than just giving folks more action-oriented Resident Evil, it would be a good idea to embrace the horror at the core of the series that has never really been embraced before.

Paul W.S. Anderson was responsible for bringing Resident Evil to the big screen back in 2002, although originally the film featured a script by horror legend George A. Romero. Whether or not this makes a Roberts flawless for Resident Evil's cinematic resurgence is not yet clear, especially since so little is known about Constantin Film's plans for the reboot.

Based on Capcom's hugely popular video games, the Resident Evil movies have earned $1.2 billion worldwide to date, making it the highest-grossing film series to be based on a video game.
