Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D

At Comic-Con it was announced that Paul W.S Anderson, who wrote and directed the first Resident Evil as well as wrote and produced the two sequels, would direct the fourth film in the franchise subtitled Afterlife.  A fourth Resident Evil film isn't that much of a suprise in my opinion, discussions of one were going around about the time Extinction was in post-production.  But, Anderson revealed the big shocker to ShockTillYouDrop, Afterlife will be in 3D!

Paul W.S Anderson: "...I'm really excited we're doing it (in 3D) and we're using the same camera system (James) Cameron used for Avatar.  There are a lot of exciting this about this one.  I don't regard it as Resident Evil 4, I regard it as a retooling and rebirth of the entire franchise."

Hmmm, well in my opinion only Journey to the Center of the Earth and My Bloody Valentine have exploited the new RealD technology for 3D use, every other movie that has used the RealD has only had two or three gags in the movie.  The rest of the film, basically is in 2D.  However the comment about using the equipment James Cameron pioneered is interesting.  I don't think I need to dwell on the rampant rumors of what Cameron was able to do with the technology for Avatar

But, enough about my feelings for the new 3D technology.  I personally feel it could work for a Resident Evil and if Afterlife is suppose to jumpstart a new franchise well it might work.  Then again might end up to be a lame duck.  We'll have to wait and see how it will be used.  Resident Evil: Afterlife is due to start shooting this September in Toronto and is due out Fall 2010.
