Anderson Talks Resident Evil 4, Castlevania
December 19, 2008

Paul W.S. Anderson updated IGN on a number of projects, namely the big guns you want to hear about: Resident Evil 4 and Castlevania.

The bad news first: According to Anderson, Castlevania, which he penned, is in a holding pattern due to a number of things. The director points his finger to Rogue Pictures, a company which is well on its way into being bought by Relativity. Last year's WGA strike mucked things up and the potential SAG strike is making those involved in the project skittish.

"We still want to make the movie, but I can't say we're going into production in January or anything like that. It's a project that everybody likes. I love the video game. I think the script is really strong. Everyone is really enthusiastic about it, but we're still in the process of deciding when the movie gets shot," he says. Sylvain White is still attached to direct.

As for Resident Evil 4, Anderson says he's plugging away at a script now. That's a change from October's update in which he stated he'll begin writing soon. "Everyone at [game developer] Capcom has had their input into the idea and they're all very excited. I don't want to tell you what it is but it's very exciting."

Anderson goes on to address one incessant fan complaint about the live-action series. Click here to read more.

Anderson not getting to work on movies is NEVER a bad thing. I cant see Capcom being excited for anymore Resident Evil movies by him, I figured that was why they went and made their own: Degeneration. He should just stick to banging his hot wife and never make a film again, but I doubt we'd be so lucky.

R4 could be cool!

"I think the script is really strong."

Is that the same script that has most of the film taking place OUTSIDE of the castle and replaces the signature weapon of the game - the whip - with a sword?

Yeah... no thanks.

RE4?!? Absolutely. Please. I love the story. The only zombie-story, that makes sense. I haven't been able to watch RE:D from Capcom just yet, but I can't wait.

The whole RE franchise has sucked at the movies. AS good as the games are, idiots like Anderson keep screwing up the movies. Even the latest RE degeneration sucked, the first 30-40 minutes were amazing, 10/10 than the focus moves away from the zombies, like usual with RE movies, and goes to the "boss" montser, although it did look great, woppie fkin doooooooooooooooooooooo. Make a real horror movie you morons, Anderson is a born dork, he almost ruined Event Horizon and he butchered AVP with his geeky new weapons and dumb crap like that. Anderson this is your last chance, either you make a smart and scray horror movie or get the fck out of the scene, and it doesnt have to be too gory.

i liked the first movie but, i think they need to reboot and keep it more like the game.for one the super human alice is to strong and it takes away from the fear cause you no she's gonna come in and beat everything up.secondly they had no hunters and the tyrant was done so poorly he talks and has these stupid tentacles this director screwd this franchise up i say reboot and have it in the mansion get rid up alice i can't stand her have chris redfield,barry,wesker,jill,and rebecca in a manstion finding secret doors and experiments and a real tyrant. go with goerge remeroes script it sounded way better than this crap they been feeding us pual w.s anderson sucks!!!!!!!!!

You guys are all silly...Resdent Evil 4 would not be a movie based off of the game Resident Evil 4 with Leon Kenedy. Resident Evil 4 would just be another sequel with Mila's chracter going around midlessly shooting dead ****. If the studios were smart they would have actually done the series right, and by doing it correctly Leon should have been the main character (or even have exsisted) in the movie version of Resident Evil 2, but nope....

If they get Russell Mulcahy back as director and keep the gore flying everywhere I'll be down for that. Or maybe get Rob Zombie or the dudes who did INSIDE to direct.

I played Ralph/Trevor and Zead in Castlevania 2, now Im playing Albert Wesker in RE5. Creepy. Talk about six degrees of separation!

to Johnny: "The only zombie-story, that makes sense." ????????
i mean, the president's daughter is kidnapped, and you sent only 1 man to rescue her???? and what about the plaga??? and what about the plot: "we want to control the president of the united states"...from a poor village in spain.
YEAH, right... THAT makes a lot of sense.
Code Veronica is the best plot in RE saga.

Posted by: chris on December 19, 2008 at 20:05:36

anderson say's that resident evil takes place all over the world i agree and it involves other characters as well idiot not some super experiment name alice. she has been in every movie because she is his girlfriend they need to stop making these movie now or do a reboot like they did with batman,hulk,streetfighter(etc) and have characters in it like in part one have like i said chris,barry,jill,rebecca,wesker,hunters and a tyrant who does not the second have leon,clair,ada and the scientist who made the g-virus.then in a third bring them all together.they need a realistic thinking director like nolan,luis lettior whatever,m.night shamalan,bryan singer,greg mclean or the guy who is doing the new wolverine movie i mean come on these movies can be better they can be great if time and thought is given. i official dislike paul w.s. andersons movies.give us resident evil 1 the movie!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: chris on December 19, 2008 at 20:10:43

i also disagree with johnny and irony the best was a tie between the remake to resident evil one and resident evil zero. but everyone has there opinion.

The movies had nothing to do with the games people, they never fallow the the storyline becouse if they did then the movie will really suck, its called adaptation for a reason, just enjoy the movies and be happy that they made them, spcially with Resident Evil, three movies and almost four, ****ing enjoy them and be ****ing happy, stop complaining you bastard

Posted by: joe asylo on December 20, 2008 at 01:40:19

this guy have made very decent films, hell i even love he's version on death race, yeah people it was good.Anywho the plot he came out for castlevania, was brilliant, shame they re stalling it. hoping they make it.

Posted by: Chris Redfield on December 21, 2008 at 15:15:41

reboot the series and make them based off the game and do not let anderson touch another film again

Posted by: ico on December 21, 2008 at 18:44:53


They broke up before the second one went into production.

I think what they should have done is to use side characters in the sequels like HUNK, that way it could be a side story to the games and not a complete departure.
