Anderson On For Resident Evil 6
He's officially said he'll direct

Resident Evil: Retribution

It seems Paul WS Anderson is ready for a busy year. Not only is he currently preparing to shoot historical action-fest Pompeii (as evidenced by the casting ramp up), he’s apparently decided to officially take the director’s chair for Resident Evil 6.

Anderson, who kicked off the franchise, has overseen it as producer and returned to direct 2010’s Afterlife and last year’s Retribution, was always likely to be back, especially since the sixth film appears to be the conclusion to the second trilogy. And, if we’re honest, he’s so ingrained in the Evil series, he could direct these things in his sleep.

Milla Jovovich (aka Paul’s better half) will be back as Alice in the film, which will be tasked with carrying on from where Retribution left off. Which – spoiler alert if you’ve yet to see it – leaves Alice in the White House standing alongside Shawn Roberts’ big bad-turned-seeming-ally Albert Wesker as a tide of ravenous infected types swarm towards the building.

As of yet, the new pic doesn’t have a catchy subhead, but it does have a release date of September 12, 2014. Could this be the absolute, we-really-mean-it last Evil film? It’ll depend on the box office…


What should be the subtitle for the new Resident Evil Film?
Devastation
Aggravation
Precipitation
Accreditation
Fury
Based on the novel 'Push' by Sapphire
I've got a better one. See the comments.

RESIDENT EVIL: ELIMINATION
Perfect title if the series ends or for the fact that all those virus infected zombies/mutants need eliminated or the human race that's left is. Plus it seems to fit as a title and sounds pretty bad a$$ to me... More

I reckon they should call it resident evil:extermination i mean come on whoever watched retribution noes that they must try and exterminate all the zombies and mutants to restart the human population so i think extermination fits rather nicely to the title More
