If you weren't already invested into zombie favourite The Walking Dead, it looks like a new contestant will be heading to the TV screen: Resident Evil.
News of the upcoming TV show was confirmed by studio executive Martin Moskowicz (via Variety
), whose German production house Constantin Film is stepping up its production of new TV releases. The company is working on a number of film-to-TV spin-offs, including shows based on the book series The Mortal Instruments and Perfume.
The production company aims to turn the Resident Evil franchise into a televised series following the release of the next feature film. Hopefully this change of production style will allow the more "gamey" side of Resident Evil to come through, and not the somewhat sub-par film adaptations we've seen so far.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will be the last film release in the long-running franchise. Filming begins in summer of 2015.
