James Wan Producing Resident Evil Film Reboot
Holy crap, this was actually a personal pick for director!
James Wan, the horror visionary behind Saw, Insidious, and most recently the excellent The Conjuring films has signed on to produce the new Resident Evil film, which is rebooting the franchise from square one. I really couldn’t be happier to hear of his involvement, having fallen in love with The Conjuring and its sequel’s slow, ambient horror stylings. Greg Russo, who is also writing the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot, will be penning the script. A director is unknown as of yet, but hopefully, someone with as excellent a pedigree (not to mention horror pedigree) will be chosen. This feels like a very hopeful sign for the future of these films. We’ll keep you updated as more information trickles out.
