Just when you thought the Resident Evil movie franchise had come to a merciful conclusion, you find out you were wrong… dead wrong! Video game developer Capcom have announced that there is yet another Resident Evil movie on the way, and boy are the fanboys are going to be upset when they learn that Milla Jovovich is not involved. But wait… there’s something else I haven’t told you yet! This new movie is going to be a fully animated CG feature called Biohazard: Degeneration (Biohazard is what the games are called in Japan). Now this is something I might be interested in.
I’ve been complaining for a while now that no one is taking chances with computer animation on the big screen, and no one is trying to make CG movies for adults. From a business standpoint, I understand why, but I think there are some cool things that could be done with the medium if it wasn’t all talking animals all the time. As for this movie, I seriously doubt they could make a Resident Evil flick that is PG-13, so I’m guessing (and hoping) that we’re in for some serious digital gore. Even if the quality of the animation is on par with the cinematics from Resident Evil 4, this could be pretty awesome. No word yet on what studio is actually doing the animation (I’m assuming it’s actually Capcom themselves) but I’m expecting something along the lines of the Final Fantasy CG flicks. Anybody else out there interested in this?
