The only thing we know right now is that the plan is to turn the video game property into another six-movie franchise.

According to Variety, Martin Moszkowicz, chairman of the board at Constantin Film confirmed a reboot is in development.

Details are scarce at present, and it's unclear whether Constantin has any talent attached to the project.

The Resident Evil movie franchise, which is the most successful film series based on a video game, is confirmed to be heading into a reboot.

Deadline reports James Wan (Aquaman, Saw, The Conjuring) will be producing the new-look Resident Evil, working from a script written by Greg Russo (the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot). The six-film series has pulled in a cool $1.2 billion Dollars worldwide since the first installment, Resident Evil, was released in 2002. With Resident Evil 7's critically acclaimed hit, selling 3.5 million units.

The famous films debuted in 2002 with Milla Jovovich in the lead role of protagonist Alice, and concluded with a sixth instalment The Final Chapter past year. Russo is best known for writing the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie reboot.

The Resident Evil series already has six installments, the majority of which had been directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

While Jun Takeuchi talks about Resident Evil 8, keep in mind that nothing has been officially announced yet.

Love or hate the movies, the series has brought in over $1 billion at the global box office, so it'd be silly for Constantin to leave that asset sitting on a shelf for too long. For quite some time the Resident Evil games started to feel like they were tip toeing closer and closer to the action genre rather than being a true thriller that focuses on scares before action.
