A new Resident Evil movie is on its way

A new animated Resident Evil movie is coming and it's bringing in some heavy hitters for production.

I know what you're thinking, but no, this is not another live-action Resident Evil movie. Instead, we are getting an animated feature film that is a reboot and does not follow 2012's Resident Evil: Damnation or 2008's Resident Evil: Degeneration.

This new animated film is bringing in some heavy hitters from the animation and film industry. The details on the film are minimal, but Mokoto Fukami (Psycho Pass) is the designated writer and Takashi Shimizu (Ju-on) is listed as an executive producer. The creativity split between these two should be able to shock and awe the gamer audience. In addition to Fukami and Shimizu, Takanori Tsujimoto (Hard Revenge Milly, Ultraman X) is expected to offer unique visual aesthetics from his position as director.  

With all the commotion surrounding Resident Evil lately, it's no surprise that this new animated film was announced. Including this film, Resident Evil fans can look forward to HD remakes of Resident Evil Zero, Resident Evil 2 and upcoming news regarding Resident Evil 7.

My name is Derek and I am hoping to figure out what I want to do when I graduate from college. I'm a senior at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and majoring in Critical Studies for film. Gaming is something that has stuck with me since childhood so I'm hoping I get to share my love games with the people around me.

    I'm glad they are still making animated RE movies because the live action ones just don't do it for me.
