Fifth Resident Evil movie set for September 2012

Sony Pictures dates next movie in the long-running series

Sony Pictures has confirmed that yet another Resident Evil movie is on the way, set to arrive in cinemas - in US, we presume - on September 14, 2012.

Details on the movie, currently named 'Resident Evil 5', are thin but Sony has confirmed it will arrive with support for stereoscopic 3D presentations.


Events will be set after the fourth movie, Resident Evil: Afterlife, which made a massive $236 million at the box office - more than two times that of RE: Extinction, and as much as the first three movies combined, according to Box Office Mojo (Via Capcom).

The fifth movie arrives just two years after Afterlife - the shortest gap between movies in the franchise loosely based on Capcom's survival horror video games.
