We told you way back in September that NBC had picked up a pilot for production that was to be produced by J.J. Abrams and co-written and directed by Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men, Gravity). Co-written by Mark Friedman (The Forgotten), the pilot, which was officially picked up by NBC in January and now has a title – Believe – is about a girl who has special powers which will manifest in seven years, and a man who is released from prison in order to protect her from those who are hunting her.

It was previously mentioned that Paul W.S. Anderson had plans for a sixth Resident Evil movie, and it looks like Sony is now ready to move forward on it. According to Styd, Sony plans to release a new Resident Evil movie on September 1th, 2014. There are no official details on the new movie at this time, but things should start to come together quickly if they are interested in putting the movie into theaters 18 months from now.
This movie franchise revolves around Milla Jovovich as Alice, so we can’t imagine her not returning. Paul W.S. Anderson will likely be involved in the creative process once again, but there’s no word on if he’ll be directing this time around. The last two movies have been filmed in 3D, so that should be another given as well. Hopefully, Sony will be ready to release more details at Comic-Con this July, »
