Mila Jovovich in Resident Evil

That gaseous sound you hear is the collective sigh of relief escaping the bellies of film connoisseurs the world over… famed director, writer, doppleganger-in-name-only to an actual Academy Award nominated director/writer, and all around swell guy, Paul WS Anderson recently revealed to that “if we could find a good Resident Evil 4 to make, then we would do it.”  With such seemingly high standards could this franchise actually end up staying dead and buried?

Not a chance.

With a combined worldwide box-office take of over $375 million for the first three films, a fourth is most assuredly guaranteed.  Each successive film has actually made more than the previous installment, and that trend will need to stop before the franchise does.  This is not necessarily a bad thing as the Resident Evil films have never been less than entertaining.  They won’t win any awards for thespianism, but the action and effects continue to impress.  Most importantly, each film manages to feature a nude, naked, and often wet Milla Jovovich.  According to Anderson, he’s already in talks with Sony about a new film, but it’s the absence of a plausible storyline that’s causing the delay.

Allow me to repeat that last statement.

It’s the absence of a plausible storyline that’s delaying the fourth film in the Resident Evil series.  To that end I direct Mr. Anderson towards Resident Evil fanatic Paige MacGregor who offers up the following detailed and intricately plotted suggestion for the next film:

“I <3 zombie porn.”
