Variety reports that a 6-film reboot is in the works, confirmed by Constantin Film's chairman of the board Martin Moszkowicz. Original director Paul W.S. Anderson has said that he's content in his contribution to the 15 year old game/movie series, so he would probably not be involved in this new version. The studio has already mapped out the six movies, but no idea yet on which direction Resident Evil will be heading.
