The trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution has been up for less than a day, and ALREADY the director wants to make another one!
While on the Toronto set of the upcoming Res Evil flick (above), peeps from Bloody-Disgusting.com spoke to director Paul W.S. Anderson, who had the following to say about a potential sixth movie in the series:
"There was an early discussion about [filming 5 and 6 back to back], but we just decided to focus on this movie. But if we made another one I do know where it would go. And obviously it would be great to do two full trilogies and just bring everything to an end."
And if that weren't clear enough, here's what Paul said when flat out asked if there will be a sixth movie:
"Yes. Definitely. Unless of course no one goes to see this one."
Given the fact that the last Resident Evil movie opened in the #1 spot at the box office, we have a feeling there'll be plenty of people going to see this one!
What do U think? Are U ready for a sixth Resident Evil flick…even though the fifth one hasn't come out yet???
