Capcom Announces Resident Evil CG Movie

Following the release of the live action Resident Evil: Extinction to cinemas, Japanese publisher and developer Capcom has announced plans for a new full-length CG animation feature, also based on the popular Resident Evil series of games.

The surprise announcement was made by Capcom Japan, who announced the feature as Biohazard: Degeneration – Biohazard being the Japanese name for the Resident Evil series.

Although receiving mixed critical acclaim, the trilogy of live action movies has been a considerable success for Capcom, with the first two movies both grossing more than $100 million at the international box office.

Extinction has seen the biggest opening so far for the movie series, with a fourth film already confirmed. A live action spin-offs featuring the Claire Redfield character has also been suggested, the character – like most in the three movies – bearing little relation to her portrayal in the games.

The new CG (computer generated) movie will be created in co-operation with Sony Picture’s Japanese subsidiary SPEJ. Few other details have been released, though, with only the promise of “groundbreaking visual effects and a brand-new story line”. The feature is planned for released in 2008, although it is not clear whether as a cinema or DVD release.
