Animated Resident Evil Movie AnnouncedCapcom has announced it will be teaming up with Sony Pictures to produce an animated Resident Evil movie. The movie, currently known as Biohazard: Degeneration (dont forget Resident Evil is actually the international name for the Japanese series), will use CG animation and will focus on "a brand new storyline". The Resident Evil movie, as mocked as they are, have proved surprisingly successful over the years. The first two movies grossed over $100 million each with the third in the series, Resident Evil: Extinction, pulling in even more. Rather than roll around in its newfound cash, Capcom has gone with the decision to greenlight this animated project. Hopefully well get something similar to Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children in that it caters to fans rather than something like Final Fantasy: Spirits Within that catered to... well, no-one. Biohazard: Degeneration is currently in production and is planned for "a terrifying release" in 2008, whatever that means.
