The Resident Evil movies make money. That's why Hollywood keeps on making them. That's why there's the upcoming (and Sony hardware-filled) Resident Evil: Retribution. You can bet that, unless nobody sees Retribution, there's going to be another one.

According to Resident Evil: Retribution director Paul W.S. Anderson, early on there was talk about shooting Retribution, the fifth RE flick, and the still unannounced sixth film back-to-back.

"But if we made another one I do know where it would go," Anderson told website Bloody Disgusting. "And obviously it would be great to do two full trilogies and just bring everything to an end."

Meanwhile, the movie's producers hinted that a prequel, instead of a sequel, could be in the works—or even spinning out another character.

When asked if that meant Anderson was going to make another Resident Evil flick, he replied, "Yes. Definitely. Unless of course no one goes to see this one."

The fate of yet another Resident Evil movie is in your hands theatergoers!

It's really weird how many of these B-rated movies keep getting made into extended franchises. You've seen this with Fast and Furious, and with another Underworld (thought I won't deny Kate Beckinsale in black leather doesn't make those movies better).

Honestly, I don't really see the issue with the movies from fans of the series. Yeah they could focus more on horror and less on action (1st movie did it better), but the actual stories of the movies are at about the same weak level as the games.

I still won't be spending money on seeing any of them, but I won't on the games either. I will say the live-action movies were FAR better than the garbage CG Degeneration movie...zombies in that movie made me laugh instead of strike any fear.

What might help me seeing any of these is getting them from Red Box, and while watching play pool and consume alcohol.
