While you might know Paul W.S. Anderson from the movies he's directed like Resident Evil, Event Horizon, Death Race and Pompeii, over the last few years he's also been doing something you may find more surprising: directing award winning commercials. Like his movies, his commercials are loaded with action. In the first of three new ads for Vw, Anderson takes the tag line "made for real life, not the movies" and offers a tongue-in-cheek take on car commercials/high-octane action movies. After you see the ad (which is after the jump), the tag line will make a lot more sense. In addition to this ad called "Bus," the second ad "Chase" and third one "Explosion" will be playing in theaters in the UK in front of movies starting July 11th and September 12th and will be released online shortly after. Recently, I got on the phone with Anderson to talk about his commercial work. »

At first glace, it would seem that a peplum film/disaster movie hybrid would be a perfect fit for the particular skill set of Paul W.S. Anderson. The British action film veteran has a knack for constructing both massive, CGI-assisted set pieces and fluid combat sequences, so a movie with gladiators and a massive volcano should be a done deal, right? Turns out that isn’t necessarily the case, since his latest effort Pomepii fails to live up to those expectations, in part because it insists that it would rather be a romantic drama about star-cross’d lovers.
The film begins with the rhythms of a revenge tale, as a faction of the Roman army led by Corvus (Keifer Sutherland, in a marvelously hammy performance) ruthlessly slays a tribe of Celts. A young child named Milo manages to escape, but is subsequently captured by slave traders. The child grows up to be a fierce fighter, »

Chicago – With regards to its production, Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Pompeii” is a period film based on current trends, honoring both the apocalypse fascination spurred by the Mayans’ recent miscalculation, and the ascent of Harrington’s star power via the popular TV series “Game of Thrones.” With neither guaranteeing a strong future for themselves through Pompeii, there is at least some bankability in Harrington’s abs.
The hard-cut results of a “300”-like regimen, Harrington’s stomach muscles have more charisma in a few film frames than his face, or the manner in which Harrington stubbornly manipulates his often-agape mouth. Instead of harnessing his first cinematic lead role, Harrington looks confused, a spiritual continuation of his choice to become this film’s empty vessel for which the audience must fill in with the idea of a more significant hero.
But as it harbors a defeating romance for formula, “Pompeii” has »

(Cbr) Paul W.S. Anderson is looking to close the book on the "Resident Evil" franchise with the next installment, currently titled "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter." Just in case there’s anything ambiguous about that title, Collider asked the filmmaker whether he’s writing the script as if it were the conclusion of the series. “That’s what’s on the title page,” Anderson replied, “it’s 'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,' so absolutely.” Revealing he’s “right in the middle” of the first draft, the director said there’s no shooting date for the film, which at one point Screen Gems pegged for September 2014 release. “I think we’re waiting until we have a first draft screenplay and then go from there,” Anderson said. “I don’t know [when it will debut], depends how fast I write, I guess. There’s no set date yet but hopefully we’ll have an announcement for that soon. »

Despite being given a September 2014 release date by Sony (which obviously it has no chance of meeting), we’ve heard very little about the sixth instalment of the Resident Evil movie franchise, save for the fact that writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson will be back alongside leading lady Milla Jovovich and Li Bingbing (Ada Wong). Well, Collider managed to catch up with Anderson, who has indicated that Resident Evil 6 could bring the curtain down on the franchise
“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the working title”, states Anderson. ” It may end up being the final title, but that’s what’s written on the front page of my script… I’m right in the middle of [the first draft]. There are no set dates for shooting yet. I think we’re waiting until we have a first draft screenplay and then go from there. I don’t know [when it will be in theaters], depends how fast I write, »

Don't act so surprised that Paul W.S. Anderson is making a sixth Resident Evil movie. Of course he's going to make another one! He's been talking about doing it since last year. At one point the movie had a release date of September of this year, but that's obviously not happening now as the film hasn't even started shooting yet. As of this moment there is no shooting date, release date, or plot information.
What we do have is a tentative title for the film, thanks to Collider. That title is Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. That's right folks, this is the last Resident Evil movie that will close out the franchise… until the studio decides to reboot it. Anderson is currently writing the script for the film, and this is what he had to say about it:

I haven't seen a Resident Evil movie since the third one in 2007, which means I never saw the franchise's turn to 3D with Resident Evil: Afterlife and Resident Evil: Retribution, but I didn't avoid the sequels out of some dislike for the franchise. In fact, the Resident Evil movies aren't too bad, at least for movies you never expect to be good in the first place. Now the original plan was to have Resident Evil 6 in theaters on September 12 of this year, that clearly isn't going to happen, but writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson has confirmed with Collider the sixth film is coming and that it will most likely be the last. "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the working title," Anderson said. "It may end up being the final title, but that's what's written on the front page of my script. I'm right in the middle of the first draft. »

It started beneath Raccoon City, and it spread worldwide, contaminating millions with a zombie virus created in the labs of the evil Umbrella Corporation. The rampant zombie infection in writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil film series, based on the popular video games of the same name, hasn’t left many humans standing after five films.
But Alice, the series’ protagonist, and a few of her friends are survivors, and we saw them in a tight spot at the end of the last film, which was released in 2012. Fans have wondered when the next installment would hit theaters, and a recent interview with Anderson sheds some light on the topic.
In a recent interview with Collider, Paul W.S. Anderson revealed that he’s currently writing the script for the sixth entry, which is tentatively titled Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, clearing up rumors that the film would start shooting this year. »

Milla Jovovich's Alice takes on the shady Umbrella organization one last time in the film, though no set dates have been announced for shooting yet. Right now everything is up in the air until he's submitted his first draft.

Over a year ago, we confirmed that director Paul W.S. Anderson would indeed be back to direct another installment of the long-running video game franchise Resident Evil, starring his wife Milla Jovovich. Originally, the next film in the series was supposed to arrive this September, but obviously, that's not going to happen. However, Collider recently spoke to Anderson, who revealed some details about the impending sequel, including that this will likely be the last film in the franchise. “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the working title. It may end up being the final title, but that’s what’s written on the front page of my script. I’m right in the middle of [the first draft].” So there's no start date yet, but the film is happening. A new release date hasn't been chosen just yet, since Anderson is still writing the script, so that needs to be completed before »

He went on to say that a release date has not been nailed down and that production would begin sometime after the first draft of the script was finalized.
"There are no set dates for shooting yet. I think we're waiting until we have a first draft screenplay and then go from there. I don't know [when it will be in theaters], depends how fast I write, I guess. There's no set date yet but hopefully we'll have an announcement for that soon. »
In 2013, it was reported that Sony intended to release a sixth installment in the studio’s lucrative, video game-based, action/zombie movie franchise, Resident Evil by September of this year; obviously, that’s not going to happen at this point, as writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson’s original plans to begin production on the flick by Fall 2013 ended up falling through. In fact, in the latest update from the filmmaker, he reveals that he’s only part-way through writing the first script draft for Resident Evil 6 - though, the movie does have a working title now.
There will soon be six Resident Evil movies total, all of them written by Anderson (who directed all ...

A couple of months ago it sounded like the sixth and likely final (fingers crossed) Resident Evil movie was going to be titled Resident Evil: Rising, however in a new interview with Collider, director Paul W.S.

Resident Evil 6 has been looming on the horizon for some time now, but according to director Paul W.S. Anderson, the next film may well be the last in the franchise. Anderson revealed that the working title for the film is Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, a moniker that may yet change, but certainly indicates the way the series is going.

For over a decade Screen Gems has been cashing in with their Resident Evil film franchise. The first film in the series, 2002's Resident Evil, pulled $102M and then the sequels: 2004's Resident Evil: Apocalypse did $129.3M, 2007's Resident Evil: Extinction did $147M, Resident Evil: Afterlife did a best $296.2M and Resident Evil: Retribution did second best with $240M. They cleared some hefty profits as they were given surprisingly modest budgets for films that relied heavily on complex action sequences and CGI. It is one of the few video game-to-film adaptations that has actually been successful. So, it is quite surprising that Paul W.S. Anderson revealed to Collider that the next Resident Evil will also be the last one. He started off the conversation with Collider by revealing the title, which is “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter." He cautioned that its just the working title at the moment, but added, »
Though you’re no doubt aware of the Resident Evil film series’ existence, what you may not know is that the franchise—which takes place in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse and follows Milla Jovovich’s Alice as she takes on the shady Umbrella organization—is actually one of the most successful video game adaptations ever made. After the release of the first film in 2002, the following three sequels each grossed more than their predecessor, topping out at nearly $300 million for Resident Evil: Afterlife. Though the last installment, Residence Evil: Retribution, fell about $50 million short of Afterlife, it still raked in an impressive $240 million worldwide. Fans have been eager for information regarding the next film—including whether it might be the last—and now we have some revealing updates about Resident Evil 6 to share straight from director/franchise godfather Paul W.S. Anderson. Steve recently landed an exclusive interview with Anderson, »
