Expect plenty of cinematic zombie fodder in the coming years in the form of animation and live-action.
Biohazard: Degeneration will be Capcom’s first foray into CG film waters. The film is already in production in Japan in partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan, and will released in 2008 in the Land of the Rising Sun.
According to Capcom, Degeneration will feature a brand-new storyline, and will not be connected in any way to the live-action Resident Evil films. So successful have the recent RE films been, in fact, that a fourth entry is already in pre-production.
Resident Evil is not the first video game series to get a CG film translation. Square (before its merger with Enix) brought its epic Final Fantasy series to the big screen, only to be met with a poor reception.
