That 'Resident Evil' Reboot Isn't Making Milla Jojovich Very Happy

We've seen sequels announced before the first movie ever came out, and reboots launched within days of a franchise's conclusion. It's always annoying, but the outcry has been surprisingly loud about the upcoming reboot of Resident Evil, mere months after 'The Final Chapter' hit theaters. And it's not only fans who are bemoaning this idea, it's previous franchise star Milla Jojovich, who tells Comic Book these plans may be a mistake...

"I think a lot of people with these franchises kind of put the cart before the horse. There’s a danger to that. They’ve been wanting to reboot ‘Resident Evil’ for a long time, and listen: I love the ‘Resident Evil’ world. I think it’s a great property, I would do it if I was a producer. I think what made ‘Resident Evil’ so special is that the people involved really loved what they’re doing and really were fans of the game..."

“I would suggest that you find people that have that same passion for the property before you talk about reboots. I think if you get into this kind of genre, people are very sensitive to fakes. There’s some real fans in the sci-fi/action/horror world, and they’re not idiots. They can smell when something is done because people love it and when something is done just to monetize an opportunity."

Kinda hard to disagree with her. While the Resident Evil movies were often the target of jokes and harsh reviews, they had a loyal, vocal audience all around the world and they aren't happy right now. Doubtful a reboot of any kind could survive without them so producers have a lot of work to do to win them over.
