'Resident Evil' Producers Seek Dismissal of Stunt Performer’s Lawsuit Over Injuries
Attorneys for director Paul W.S. Anderson and his longtime producing partner Jeremy Bolt, along with their respective companies, Tannhauser Gate Inc., and Bolt Pictures Inc., have filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit brought against them by South African stunt performer Olivia Jackson, alleging that Jackson’s “American lawyers are suing the wrong people in the wrong place.”

Last month, Jackson filed a suit against Anderson and Bolt in Los Angeles Superior Court seeking unspecified damages for ongoing medical needs related to the 2015 motorcycle accident on the set of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016), which left her ...

Capcom Announces Resident Evil 7 Prequel For Release This Month

At least one more Resident Evil game is due to release before the end of 2019 and no, we’re not talking about Project Resistance.

Capcom’s strange-yet-curious spinoff is currently without a release date and given that fans are only now beginning to beta test the experimental title, it’s likely we won’t be seeing it until 2020 at the earliest. Today, however, the publisher dropped a surprise bombshell on Resi fans by confirming that none other than Resident Evil 7 is scheduled to receive a follow-up. Well sort of, at least. For starters, this addition to the gruesome universe is a prequel to the original and, what’s more, will be by playable only via virtual reality.

Resident Evil 7: Walkthrough The Fear will debut on October 26th and you can sneak an early peek at the Vr-exclusive experience via the poster below.

New Resident Evil 2 Mod Brings Back A Fan Favorite Character

Is Resident Evil 2 destined to become the most-modded game in history? Were it not for Bethesda’s endlessly customizable Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I’d have no qualms with offering my agreement with an enthusiastic nod, but regardless, Capcom’s critically acclaimed remake is certainly up there, for sure.

At not even a year old, fans of the survival horror series have dedicated countless hours to chopping and changing various aspects of Raccoon City and its residents, sometimes in an effort to increase the scare factor but mostly for comedic effect. Truth be told, so frequent have contributions been over the last several months that we couldn’t possibly hope to showcase them all here, but all you really need to know is that, more often than not, the subject of attention is Mr. X.

The lumbering Tyrant has emerged as headline star of Resi 2‘s reimagining, even ahead of Leon and Claire,

Resident Evil 5 And 6 Demos Are Now Available On Switch

While Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 are scheduled to release later this month on Switch, Capcom has just sneakily stealth released demos of both horror titles on the eShop. As of the time of writing, the launch of the demos has been confirmed for Australia’s eShop, though other regions will likely follow suit shortly.

According to Vg24/7, Resident Evil 5 on Switch will include both online and couch co-op, all previously released Dlc, Versus mode, four costumes, and No Mercy mode. Also included in the package is “The Mercenaries United” mode which combines The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion mode for up to four players.

The Switch version of Resident Evil 6, on the other hand, can be played solo or in four-player co-op. It also features the Survivor mode that pits up to six-players against one another. Additionally, it’ll come packing all previously released Dlc, as well as two

An Early Prototype Version Of Silent Hill 2 Has Been Uncovered

If I had to single out the two biggest and best horror franchises in all of gaming, I’d outright name Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Both captivated gamers for years with their intriguing storylines, incredible gameplay and countless scares. But while Resident Evil continues to thrive, Silent Hill doesn’t look to be making a comeback anytime soon – unless, of course, Konami gets their sh!t together, and not many of us see that happening.

More often than not, the fanbase settles on Silent Hill 2 as being their favorite installment. Personally, it’s a tossup between the second and third games for me, as both boast such great qualities. But for now, let’s continue discussing James Sunderland’s insane quest that’s eternally enthralled us, shall we?

Believe it or not, the folks over at Hidden Palace have uncovered an early prototype version of the sequel, specifically build 0.10 VW047-U1. Dated July 13th,

Full Cast For New Wrong Turn Movie Revealed, Matthew Modine To Star

The Wrong Turn franchise hasn’t ever been a well respected horror series, but it has shown itself to be pretty sustainable over the years, delivering a total of six films between 2003 and 2014. Now, the carnage will continue with yet another outing currently in production.

Yes, as you may’ve heard, Constantin Film – the studio behind the Resident Evil movies – is bringing us a new chapter in this series that revolves around an inbred family of cannibalistic mountain men from West Virginia. Mike P. Nelson, director of the acclaimed post-apocalyptic thriller The Domestics, will be behind the camera and in what may sound like a familiar premise, the movie will feature a group of friends who embark on a hiking trip through the Appalachian Trail.

It’s here that they come into contact with “The Foundation,” a community who’ve been residing in the mountains for many decades and these

Resident Evil X Monster Hunter World Crossover Event Revealed

Monster Hunter World players have seen the action-rpg receive some truly bizarre crossovers since launch back in 2018 but this one undoubtedly takes the cake.

Announced earlier today via social media, this particular collaboration is staying strictly in-house, as Capcom has decided to merge two of its most popular franchises together to push the crazy factor way past 11. As Resident Evil 6 so spectacularly showcased in the past, survival horror and action-action adventure go together like chalk and cheese, but the developer isn’t letting that ill-fated footnote in the series’ past ruin this weird and wonderful meeting.

Resident Evil 2 stars Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy are confirmed to be arriving in the New World this November as unlockable Layer Outfits for players to obtain. For those not familiar with Monster Hunter lingo, the term refers to special costumes that change the player avatar’s appearance but confer no stat benefits.

Death, Injuries and an Amputation: Is 'Resident Evil' Hollywood's Most Dangerous Franchise?

Death, Injuries and an Amputation: Is 'Resident Evil' Hollywood's Most Dangerous Franchise?
It was raining on the day of the shoot. That morning, Sept. 5, 2015, Olivia Jackson mucked around on the lonely stretch of road outside Pretoria, South Africa, where Resident Evil: The Final Chapter was filming. None of the other crewmembers, decked in gum boots and rain jackets, seemed to think they would be shooting that day. Jackson, a 34-year-old veteran stunt performer, had been scheduled to film a fight scene. Instead, at the last minute, she learned that she'd be doing a tricky stunt on a motorcycle.

The two practice runs went well enough. Jackson raced at 43 mph ...

‘House Of Night’: ‘ShadowHunters’ Producers Adapting Ya Vampire Saga For TV
Exclusive: ShadowHunters producers Don Carmody and David Cormican will adapt the New York Times No. 1 bestselling House of Night series, the Ya vampire saga written by the mother-daughter tandem of P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast, for television. Carmody and Cormican board the project with Davis Films, according to Victor Hadida, Davis Films’ president.

Hadidia said Oscar-winning producer Carmody (Chicago) and International Emmy-nominated producer Cormican (Tokyo Trial) are the ideal team to adapt the fang saga into a live-action TV series through their Don Carmody Televison, the 6-year-old shingle that most recently delivered Northern Rescue for Netflix.

Carmody has considerable history with Davis, having produced both Silent Hill films, a few Resident Evil installments and most recently Lucky Day by writer-director Roger Avary.

How Vin Diesel Inspired Ruby Rose’s Leadership on the ‘Batwoman’ Set
There is a tall order in front of Ruby Rose, who is playing the titular character on the CW’s latest DC drama, “Batwoman.” After recently being injured while doing her own stunts, she underwent emergency surgery and is not letting a new scar stop her from playing the rare lead superhero character who also happens to be gay, as well as also leading a set for the first time. But, Rose says, she gave more detailed thought to how she wanted to lead the set than any pressure to represent the character a certain way.

“Every single time someone arrived to Vancouver, because everyone trickled in at different times, I took them out for dinner; we discussed the script; we discussed our lives, who we are, introduced ourselves,” Rose tells Variety. “I spent a lot of time when we weren’t shooting just getting to know these people and

Capcom Releases Video Of Full-Length Match From Project Resistance

While its premise does seem intriguing, it should come as no surprise that longtime Resident Evil fans have been left disappointed following the announcement of Project Resistance.

As we covered after the game’s initial reveal, franchise diehards quickly took to Twitter to post their reactions, with many bashing it for straying too far from the series’ survival horror roots. Considering how popular Resident Evil 7 and the remake of Resident Evil 2 were, the amount of backlash is not surprising, though Capcom has taken the time to address fans’ concerns, and has gone on the record to say that those who aren’t too keen on an online 4v1 asymmetrical experience will be able to play offline in a solo mode which is more “focused on the narrative component.”

Unfortunately, Capcom has an uphill battle when it comes to wooing fans, but it doesn’t look like they’re giving up anytime soon.

Project Resistance Will Have An Offline Mode For Traditional Resident Evil Fans

For many longtime Resident Evil fans, Project Resistance‘s announcement has been somewhat of a disappointment.

The upcoming title is a spinoff of Capcom’s illustrious franchise and represents a drastic tonal shift for a variety of reasons, chief among them being the introduction of multiplayer. Unlike the mainline games, which have, by and large, been traditionally single-player affairs that task you with surviving a living nightmare on your own, Project Resistance is, well, the opposite of that.

The premise is simple. Using an asymmetrical format similar to that of Dead by Daylight, Resistance pits a team of four survivors against a single human-controlled opponent, the Mastermind. The survivors’ job is to escape a series of increasingly difficult scenarios filled with zombies, Lickers and puzzles while their opponent does everything in their power to prevent their success. Choosing enemy spawn points, triggering environmental effects (e.g. turning out the lights

David Kehrl is to join Constantin Film, Germany’s leading independent movie producer and distributor, as the head of acquisitions and international co-production. He will report to Martin Moszkowicz, chairman of the executive board at Constantin Film, which produces the “Resident Evil” movies.

Capcom Says Project Resistance Will Be A Great Survival Horror Experience

Though Capcom’s recently revealed Project Resistance has been met with its fair share of criticism – mainly due to the series’ new multiplayer-centric direction – the game’s producer has stepped in to placate fans of the legendary horror franchise.

As Wgtc reported earlier this week, Capcom producer Matt Walker took to Twitter and wrote that while it’s “totally valid that people want more of the quality core [Resident Evil] experience” the Japanese publisher needs “to continue to branch out and try to offer up new gameplay in addition to refining the experiences people expect.”

Now, Walker has continued to defend their upcoming project, promising that the game’s core experience will stick closely to the series’ survival horror roots:

Project Resistance offers up a really interesting way to do that. The most important part? That it’s a great survival horror experience, if non-traditional. I think we confuse things

Milla Jovovich's 'Resident Evil' Stunt Double Speaks Out on Crash That Left Her Partially Paralyzed
For 17 days after a horrific incident left her severely injured and partially paralyzed, stunt performer Olivia Jackson suffered from nightmares and hallucinations while in a medically induced coma.

In one of these visions, Jackson was being jerked around a bridge at lightning speed while tethered by rope to a motorcycle.

Of all the dreams she had, that one bore a passing resemblance to the real-life event that landed the former model and Cape Town native in the hospital after the first day of shooting began on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in her home country in September 2015.

Capcom Defends Project Resistance, Says They’re Trying To Branch Out

Project Resistance has been the source of growing controversy since its announcement.

The Resident Evil spinoff, which pits a team of four players against one human-controlled ‘Mastermind,’ is a drastic departure from Capcom’s core survival horror franchise, a truth that’s resulted in a mass of disgruntled (putting it lightly) fans unhappy with the developer’s decision. The disdain exhibited by purists is somewhat understandable, too. After all, the critically acclaimed remake of Resident Evil 2 released earlier this year is considered a magnificent return to the series’ roots and many had expected the Japanese institution to follow its success either with a sequel to 2017’s Resident Evil 7 or another remake.

The sentiment is one that’s since been echoed by one of the studio’s producers, Matt Walker, who took to Twitter in order to address fans directly.

Resident Evil Stuntwoman Says Producers Abandoned Her After Serious Injury

While never critical darlings, the Resident Evil film series ran for an impressive six outings, spanning 14 years. Milla Jovovich led every single one of them, kicking both normal and undead ass along the way. However, action stars don’t do all that work on their own, they rely heavily on stunt doubles for complicated shots that require danger, and sometimes that danger comes to fruition.

As you may have heard, stuntwoman Olivia Jackson is now suing producers after they stopped providing medical support for her, post-accident. In 2015, in the middle of the shoot for the last film in the series, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Jackson was preparing for a fight scene. Moments before, though, she was told they would be switching to a dangerous motorcycle stunt instead. A camera impeded her motion after missing its cue, resulting in a serious accident in which Jackson lost her arm. She had

Mortal Kombat Reboot Begins Shooting, First Set Photo & Training Video Arrive

  • MovieWeb
After years of rumors, discussions and little movement (up until very recently), the long-awaited Mortal Kombat reboot has finally begun filming. The news was confirmed by writer Greg Russo on Twitter. Russo shared the first set photo, which didn't reveal all that much, as it's merely a photo of the clapboard with some very blurry people lingering in the background. But the big takeaway here is that this train is finally rolling down the tracks. Russo had this to say in his caption.

"May the Elder Gods watch over us! #ItHasBegun"

Production is taking place in Australia. This project has been in the works for some time at New Line Cinema, but the studio hadn't managed to crack the code on just how to revive the popular video game franchise for the big screen. It didn't hurt matters when James Wan, director of The Conjuring and Aquaman, boarded as a producer.
