SDCC ’10: Will There Be a Resident Evil 5?

ON

And is Anderson still doing Castlevania?

When Shock Till You Drop spoke to Paul W.S. Anderson at Comic-Con a year ago, and broke the news to us that he’d be helming Resident Evil: Afterlife in 3D, he hinted that the fourth entry would kick off a new trilogy. Later, we caught up to Anderson and producer Jeremy Bolt on set and they remained hopeful that a fifth film was possible.

Do those plans still hold? Shock interviewed Anderson this afternoon, in anticipation of the big Resident Evil: Afterlife Comic-Con panel, and the director told us:

“We always take it one movie at a time. We put so much effort into them and it is a family affair. It is all about making the best possible movie now and then promoting well and getting it out there. Making sure it is seen in the right way. When the dust settles then you think about something else. For us, it is not a business, it is a passion. You don’t want to start talking about the next baby until you make sure this one is okay.”

Not exactly a “yes” or a “no.” We’ll see how Afterlife fares at the box office. As for Castlevania, a project Anderson has been involved with for some time, he says he is not involved in that anymore.
