Resident Evil fans rejoice! The film story will continue for at least one more feature. Shock Til You Drop has learned that Resident Evil 6 has been given a September 12, 2014 release date, confirming that the sequel will indeed be moving forward. This is a bit of a curious development, as last we heard, director Paul W.S. Anderson was gearing up to film the epic Pompeii this year with Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) set as the lead. If the 2014 date for Resident Evil is indeed true, it’s unlikely that Anderson is filming both movies this year; either the production start-date for Pompeii has been pushed or someone else is directing Resident Evil 6 or Pompeii.

Though last year’s Resident Evil: Retribution broke the series’ streak of each film grossing more than its predecessor, its $221 million worldwide haul is still impressive. Anderson stated last September that he had a story in mind for RE6 that involved a lot of death and would possibly bring the franchise to a close.
