Claire Redfield may become lead character.
Resident Evil: Extinction may have been billed as the end of the cinematic trilogy, but that doesn't mean the series is actually over. The weekend before Extinction opened in theaters, Jill Valentine actress Sienna Guillory said there was talk of a fourth entry focusing on her character, but that was contingent on the film's box office success. That wasn't an issue, with Extinction racking up $24 million its opening weekend.
It didn't take long for someone to up and ask: does that mean Resident Evil 4 is on? Sci Fi Wire talked to Resident Evil movie producer Jeremy Bolt, who actually suggested the next sequel might focus on another character from the series' universe, Claire Redfield.
"We haven't changed our mind [about working on another one]," said Bolt. "We want to be respectful. I think the thing is, we're in the middle of Death Race. We haven't really focused on [another Resident Evil]. Certainly we'd like to look at it, but I wouldn't want to say we were or weren't doing anything at this point. It's too early."
