Exclusive: Director Paul W.S. Anderson Talks RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION; 10 Things to Know About the Fifth RESIDENT EVIL Film

     October 2, 2011

Paul W.S. Anderson RESIDENT EVIL RETRIBUTION interview slice

While it may be a little surprising to some, the Resident Evil franchise has broadened its fanbase with each entry. Based on the video game franchise of the same name, the first film debuted in 2002 and each subsequent film in franchise has grossed more than its predecessor, with 2007’s Resident Evil: Afterlife taking in over $230 million in foreign box office alone. Steve got the chance to speak with director Paul W.S. Anderson in London today about his upcoming adaptation of The Three Musketeers, and the director spoke at length about the next installment in the undead franchise Resident Evil: Retribution.

Anderson talked about bringing in the Las Plagas parasite, lifting action set pieces straight from the video games, deciding which new characters to include from the games based on fan’s comments, transitioning the films from straight horror to more action-oriented, filming in Tokyo, Moscow, and North America, and working closely with Capcom to ensure a line of continuity between the movie and game franchises. Hit the jump to see what all Anderson had to say, including the 10 things you need to know about Resident Evil: Retribution.

paul-w-s-anderson-imageHere are the 10 Things to Know About Resident Evil: Retribution from Steve’s conversation with Anderson.  You can also watch the entire conversation further down the page:

  • RE:5 starts filming in Toronto in a week.
  • Anderson lent heavily on the video games for inspiration for Retribution, just as they did with the previous films.
  • They’re bringing in the Las Plagas parasite from the games for Retribution. It will allow the undead to “run around, ride motorbikes, and shoot machine guns.”
  • They’re recreating an action set-piece from the fifth video game where the characters are driving in a Hummer while being chased by zombies. Anderson changed the vehicle to a Rolls Royce Phantom.
  • They had to tear apart and rebuild the Phantom with roll-bars and such in order to shoot the chase scene.
  • Responding to criticisms that the film franchise has become too action-heavy while sidelining the horror, Anderson said the games have followed the same trajectory, leading to some phenomenal action sequences. He praises the franchise for consistently changing things up.
  • When decided which new characters to include in Retribution, Anderson and Milla Jovovich listened to the fanbase. They settled on adding Leon Kennedy, Ada Wong, and Barry Burton, who they felt where the three fan-favorites that the film franchise has yet to touch on.
  • When casting for the new characters, they tried their best to get people that looked as much like the game characters as possible.
  • Retribution takes place in Tokyo, Moscow, and North America. They’re filming in all three locations.
  • When Anderson signed on for the first film, he flew to Osaka and spent three days at Capcom explaining his vision and having a dialogue with the game creators.
  • Anderson says the relationship between the films and Capcom is symbiotic. They look at the scripts and give notes, and sometimes the Anderson and the people working on the film franchise will change things because of the comments.

Anderson confirmed that they would once again be relying heavily on the video games for some of the action sequences. In fact, Anderson lifted an action sequence straight from the fifth game that makes great use of the benefits of the Las Plagas parasite:

“We’re bringing in the Las Plagas parasite, which I love because it allows the undead to basically run around, ride motorbikes, and shoot machine guns, which no one’s done before. There’s a great action sequence which we’ve been inspired by from the fifth game, which is where the characters are driving in a Hummer through the desert and they’re being chased by zombies shooting machine guns on motorbikes. We’ve taken that and we’ve kind of run with it. We’re not gonna use a Hummer this time we’re gonna use a Rolls Royce Phantom, cause no one’s ever done a car chase with a Rolls Royce Phantom before. And I’ve discovered why, because it’s really, really expensive.”

In deciding which new characters to include in Retribution, Anderson and star Milla Jovovich listened to the fans and chose three characters who they saw as fan-favorites that hadn’t been used in the films yet:

“[The new characters] is something that’s kind of come out of Mila and I talking to fans, feeling the characters that people wanted to come in. [We chose] three of those that seem to be the fan-favorites that we’d never touched on: Leon Kennedy, Ada Wong, and Barry Burton. We really went out of our way to get people who looked as much like their characters as possible from the game…This actor Johann Urb, who I’m very excited to be working with, not only is he a really good actor but he looks like Leon Kennedy. I mean you put photographs of them side-by-side, it’s almost like he was manufactured by Capcom.”

Anderson also touched on complaints that the franchise has become more action-oriented and has moved away from the horror genre. Anderson defends this decision, citing the shift in the video games and ability to include exciting new action sequences:

“One of the strengths of the Resident Evil game franchise is that they keep changing it up. Some people complain about that, and it’s a complaint I hear sometimes about the movies as well, ‘Resident Evil is horror, why do you keep doing action?’ Well, that’s one of the things that the games have done as well, they’ve always kept an element of horror but they’ve become increasingly action-driven games with these phenomenal action sequences. That’s something that I think has kept the game alive, and also it’s one of the reasons why I think the movies have kind of broadened out in terms of audience as well. If you make just hardcore horror, there’s a limited audience for that. Whereas if it’s horror mixed with action, I think you kinda broaden your potential fanbase.”

Finally, Anderson talked about his relationship with Capcom and their involvement in the film franchise:

“The first thing I did when I signed to do the first Resident Evil film, literally my signature was drying on the contract, is I got on a plane and I went to Osaka and I met with everyone from Capcom, and I spent three days there kind of talking to them about the movie, and what my idea was, and what did they think of that idea, and that’s been the way our relationship has been since then. There’s a very open dialogue between me and Capcom. They know what the stories are, they get the script, they make comments, sometimes we change things because of those comments. I certainly don’t wanna kill a character that they want to continue, or I don’t want characters to do things that they feel would be wrong within the world of the video games. The world of the video game and the world of the movies, they exist within the same universe, but they’re running on slightly separate tracks.”

    that feels better

    • andy

      you’re an idiot…lol

      • MainFragger

        Strong Enough nailed it on the head, Andy, you are off base.

        Paul “noboody gives a crap about your middle initials” Anderson is a hack. He is in second place behind Uwe Boll as the ruiner of video game movies.
        I understand wanting to interject more action in the films for audiences..but they almost totally did away with the creepy/eerie horror moments that made anyone have ANY interest in the video games to begin with. Resident Evil was the first horror survival game that got it right. Anderson’s movies are like the video games in the same way that dragging chicken through tepid water for 1.5 seconds makes it chicken soup.. Not at all.

        Yes, there has been more action in later games thanks to Las Flagas type zombies…BUT they still never left the creepiness or eerieness behind. If Paul Anderson doesn’t realize that the horror element is STILL more important than the action element, then he should be in a straight jacket. Because only crazy people ignore what is so obviously in their face and what the fans keep complaining about over and over again.

        I mean really, “Oh, you the fans made this game popular enough for me to notice it as being movie worthy, but I’m just going to ignore what made you like it so that I can dream up my own watered down version..” Screw You Paul Anderson. For ruining the movies, and for ruining one of my favorite Models/Actresses. I hope one day Milla comes to her senses, sees you for the hack you are and wants a divorce and sues you for half or more. Cause you deserve it!

  • Collin V.

    I honestly like the direction both the films and games have taken. I hope the fifth film is the best in the series.

  • Alex-mansy

    Although, annoying, gotta agree with Anderson. Saying that, Afterlife, was very choppy in tone and lacking in story or character development. It was only held up due to Anderson’s action directing skills and audiences already significant involvement with the Alice character. (And also Ali Larter’s character)

  • Qaos

    I hope he don’t relay too much on the video games for some of the action sequences >.<

    But other then that, I loved the Movies alot <3

    and, OMG!!! gonna use a Rolls Royce Phantom !? O.o looool ppl gonna cry xD

  • Acrimony

    These movies are so disappointing. The first and second were OK movies, you could tell someone was trying to keep enough of the game elements in it to satisfy people, but overall so disappointing considering the wealth of deep story line out there from the game and the shallow garbage from the films. Why the Alice character? Why invent some character that has nothing to do with anything? The three or four main characters from every single game was not enough? We need to introduce a character no one who plays the game (and would be the people most interested in a series based on the franchise) has ever heard of? Then make the characters the players already like 2nd fiddle? What was the director thinking? Where’s Wesker? Why make a Laser room in a movie about zombies in a mansion and kill off the “elite” soldier team in one shot? Why make Nemesis feel some compassion for Alice at the end of RE2? Why deviate from the story line that is already amazing with stupid cliché crap?

    I really, really hope they reanimate this series sometime in the future and remove the unnecessary extras that have no point and actually make the series less related to the franchise it is supposed to be based on.

    Great, this one will have zombies riding motorcycles and shooting machine guns, as if the films weren’t a ridiculous action movie all ready. Yeah, the game got more action oriented as time went on (sorta in 4, definitely in 5), but seeing as how the 2nd half of the first movie was an action flick and you never looked back, I’d say you kind of jumped the gun on that one.

    Oh, sometimes you listen to Capcom when you make a movie based on a game franchise they created and fans love? Wow! No wonder the first couple of movies were mostly shit, and not complete shit.

    I can’t wait to see how you screw up Leon. How many times does Alice save him?

    “Anderson lent heavily on the video games for inspiration for Retribution, just as they did with the previous films.” If the first four films were supposed to rely heavily on the video games, then I’m America’s next Iron Chef.

    We watched Afterlife not too long ago; there was one action sequence that was almost 4 straight minutes of slow-motion. When you stop using it sparingly for effect, it stops being effective, and simply becomes annoying.

    Chris Redfield was a second-string character in a movie based on games he’s been headlining for almost 2 decades now. Like Acrimony said, I can’t wait to see what kind of travesty Leon turns out to be.

    Well, he has the last laugh and this movie is on it’s 5th installment. So, you lose, he Wins!

    Go Paul (and I hope a sequel of 3M will commence also!)

    • Strong Enough

      your a piece of sh*t and have no taste

    • MainFragger

      I’ve seen them all. So I am as guilty as supporting him as anyone. But the truth is, I go because I want to see the different zombies in action, and I do like the action on the big screen.

      But I am also honest enough to say the movies pretty much suck, and that in the end, they lack just about everything that made anyone play through the first game, let alone the sequals. The whole point of “Resident Evil” in the beginning was that you were in a creepy place where things were stalking you, and you weren’t even totally sure of what was going on.

      The first film should have been almost all mansion with 5 minutes of the S.T.A.R.s discovering the lab at the end. Instead, the Mansion came and went in like 5 minutes at the beginning and another 5 at the end. They’ve YET to do..the spiders, the alligator, the shark, the Hunter-Killers, most of the main bosses, or the plant that smacks you into the wall. Or the mobile plants from RE2. They haven’t even mentioned the plants. None of the puzzles were in any way represented. Most of the characters in the movies are NOTHING like their characters in the game. They barely even addressed the Ashcroft tie in to the virus.

      And in the last film, they wasted one of the cool Las Flagas bosses on a film that in no way fits in with the RE game timeline..but are going to do Las Flas this film..duh! Maybe they’ll have the giant zombie in this one.

      • MainFragger

        Sorry, in the “The didn’t even mention the plants” I meant to say, They didn’t even mention the curative plants..The Green, Red and Blue flowers that you find around the mansion.

        Someone should stop and type something on a creepy old typewriter at some point or other in the film.

        Conserving ammo and using the right weapons for each type of zombie should be a dynamic that is kept in the movies..

        But noooooooo! Paul Anderson refuses to make the movie gamelike in any way..

        I half expect him to make an Ecco the Dolphin movie with Ecco trying to save the world by flopping around on land with a machine gun.

    the movies are hit or miss for me. i really liked the first one the best even though it was different. I mean why recreate the game exactly right? you can just play the game and it’s like the perfect movie already. so i dunno his “resident evil” is just fun to watch and laugh and stuff..

    Damn! people are just haters damn it oh well i think resident evil is cool the games and the movies . All the Actors and Actress try their best to entertain the people and people just BS on it.

  • FoxyJ

    Fuck the game…I love the movies…as long as Milla Jovovich is kicking butt I’ll pay money to see it.!!!

    • ComoChingan

      And there lies the problem. People that like the games want a movie adaptation of the games; perhaps seen from the perspective of different in-game characters or a totally new character but following the games’ plot. People that like to see Milla Jovovich kicking butt want to see her blowing stuff up while she duel wields shotguns. Both could have been had; Alice could have become a canon Resident Evil character that progressed the story of the games, she could have had dept. Unfortunately, that’s not what Anderson did. Character “cameos”, loud explosions, and flashing lights do not make a good Resident Evil movie. These movies by any other name would be enjoyable and nonsensical hokum. It is because they tie in with the Resident Evil mythos and dismiss their main characters, villains, and story as not only inferior but cheap hollow shells, propped up to feed off of the fan base, that people, myself included, have a problem with these films.

  • Snider

    I totally agree with the above positive & the negative feedback. I’m an RE fan too but with the latest part, RE: Afterlife. I’m not going to hope to see an entertaining RE: Retribution. It was a waste for a 3D movie, the script was bad & so was the action scenes. He better work on the script for Resident Evil: Retribution or else it’s the end of RE era!

  • Doctor Avoido

    It is so amazing that the people throwing around hate have virtually no idea what they are talking about.

    Capcom didn’t want a copy of their games for a movie, why do you think George Romero was fired? He was just going to make a slightly different version of the first game. The problem is though is he’d never have been able to do the movie anyway cause no one would ever give him the money for the budget.

    Paul and Milla have both said in interviews that they originally intended Milla to play Jill Valentine in the first film and but again Capcom didn’t even want Jill in it. The characters were created out of the fact that it is what they had to do.

    The stories in the films have all been original stories or “alternate versions” of game events because it is simply what they had to do. They didn’t even get premission to use Wesker until Resident Evil Extinction and it was late in the process as well cause Wesker’s character was originally written to be a Japanese Umbrella executive but when they got the rights to use Wesker they changed the character at the last minute.

    • MainFragger

      But they took out the slow creepiness of the games. Like I said, I realize that action sells, everyone is happy to see Milla, but you don’t leave the chicken out of the chicken soup and expect your diners to be happy about it.

      Even if you changed every setting and plot line, its all about exploring an unfamiliar area and discovering things that no one should ever want to run into in ways that are really creepy.

      They totally dropped that aspect. And that was the most important thing that made the game franchise and that would have made all of the movies much better. I’m not a hater. I just love the core idea of RE that Paul Anderson never seems to bring to the table.

    I can’t believe they still allow this loser Paul Anderson to continue with these awful RE sequel. Capcom should just yank the cords and reboot the franchise. Go back to the beginning. Do it right. Learn from AMC “The walking dead”.

  • Jason

    LOL. I actually thought the 4th movie was at the very least decent. But I can’t believe that people honestly think that the prior movies are anything but terrible. I mean, the stories are inconsistant as hell (wtf happened to the world being all desert in the 3rd movie?), the characters are terrible, and the action is so unrealistic that it’s disgusting.

    The only person who has any character development, which is barely any at all, is Alice. Hell, there was no backstory on Wesker. No back story on Chris. None on Jill. None on Carlos. They didn’t even explain how Chris and Wesker knew each other. And why the hell was the Executioner just randomly there?

    The ENTIRE Chris/Claire vs. Wesker scene in the 4th movie was like a bad fan edit on youtube that was originally taken from the game, throwing Alice in at random as to keep her presence. They didn’t even explain how Chris and Wesker knew each other. And why the hell was the Executioner even there?

    Man, what a disaster of a movie franchise. I hope that Anderson pays someone to write the next script for him.

  • avephoenix5

    I think that the franchise of “RE movies” it’s pretty much like “Smallville” tv show for the Superman universe, it’s a whole parallel storyline. I agree that movies are kind of poor comparing with the games. It’s true they can’t replicate the game into a full movie, but it’s also true that RE 1 has a perfect story for a horror less action movie! The “work” of Paul Andersson is to “take” pieces of the game and make his own movie wich is not well apreciated for us, the fans…I kindda like the movies but when I see them I have my own premise “Watch them with a full conciousness that movies are in fact a whole alternate universe from the games” Even tho, movies are very crappy, poor, no deep character plots and development…Alice is great as a new character, bad actress but beautiful and kick-ass action figure! But it’s true what fans said, we have a lot of strong characters from the game, Chris, Jill, Claire, Leon…and it’s a shame that this characters were relfected as 2nd leads in the RE movies, such a waste dudes! As Uwe Boll, Mr Andersson fails recreating the true and amazing world of RE. I Think Capcom shouldn’t allowed to make the movies like that. Hope someday, some of the great directors that Hollywood has, takes the wheels and pay a fair retribution to the ever love fans and followers! So, fellas, this is what it is, money, producers make movies, not directors, at least not like Andersson kind. So take a piece of my advice, enjoy the movies as they are, entertaining for 2 hours, consider it a alternative world for RE and you will suffer less. I Think that Silent Hill movie adaptation was kool, maybe someday, some director, take us to the Resident Evil Origins and makes a wonderful adaptation…Cheers!

    I love watching this film over and over again every series is a great continuation of the series is something I hope everyone love you, I congratulate

    Has anyone ever read the resident evil novels? Theres your movies script and all, I cant believe how bad these movies are the people who like watching obviously are not fans of the game I thought the only movie that had any sort of relevance was the first one and even then I was still wondering wtf. If you cant make a movie that doesnt relate to the book, or in this case, game its based on DONT DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Eric Kuzmish

    I was at the Q&A conference in person, an interesting debate.

  • Nomorehope

    Look theres no point in stopping the dude. Some people actually like these movies…*sigh* Re fans… Just dont watch it we had our moments in the games already. Like in re 1 the mansion and the deep secrets! Or re 2 leon n clarie trying to survive the infested city and dont forget Re 3 when the relenthless nemesis is trying to kill you. Wat im trying to say is that paul will never relive those moments n we should just ignore n forget about him. Ps fuck you anderson

  • Pillshatner

    Yeah really. Saying that it’s going down hill or getting broader is a statement which says that it started at a peak and narrow fan base and is rolling downhill and opening up to new people. The argument that the games changed the formula is a good one if it held up to any kind of scrutiny. The formula for these movies hasn’t changed at all, they all remain incomprehensible. It was horrible from the start and I was a dumb kid who got tricked into going to see that awful piece of shit. Well, actually the second one scarred me for life so I can’t complain too bad about that first one. I don’t give a fuck that he completely fucked the movies up, all I give a fuck is that I paid to see it and I can’t unsee it. It haunts me. If you really look at Romero, I loved his movies when he started: Night, Dawn, Day. If you look at the ones he makes today though, the quality has went down. I will give him this though, he at least had a starting point from which to decline. This ass clown owes me like 20$ I wasted on this horrible shit and I’d take it however I could get it. He’s fucking the actress but that’s typical Hollywhorelandwood behavior. She’s an insipid twat of meretricious character, which doesn’t concern me, but her acting skill does. It’s like watching dirt piling up on your dead mother’s casket. You feel like you’re heart is broken and you don’t know what to do but cry. I just can’t believe I paid the money and stopped and other people paid and kept on paying. If you really asked me about my opinion on the worst movies this whole fuck up series is at the top of the list. It’s just cheap Hollywood stoner-flick junk. The only way to enjoy it is to smoke a blunt and huff a can of duster and maybe afterwards get into your grandmother’s medicine cabinet and then any of these films would really seem great. What I mean by stoner-flick is the new age of Hollywood. Short stories that change so quickly you can’t keep up and that’s great because they never make any sense, guns everywhere and a lot of pointless murder, characters so shallow you want all of them to be killed in an explosion, explosions happening left and right to give the illusion of action going on, comedic relief in the form of a black guy who says things like “Damn nigga, Alice you is crazy girl.” or a Mexican saying “Damn TJ you son of a bitch I found your cigarettes, you lied to me and told me you were out.” WTF. Seriously if you watch that one shitty one, I need to clarify that it’s the third movie, you will see some of the dumbest shit you’ll ever encounter going on within a television screen. I bet this Anderson guy thought nobody paid attention. I really didn’t. I paid to see the one, saw two and three for free and stopped. I’m glad I watched the third one though because there is great stuff going on in there. When that guy, Carlos or Pedro or whatever blows himself up on that suicide mission he’s in a big rig that’s flipped and set to blow. He finds the negro’s cigarettes and is like, “TJ, you lying son of a bitch.” He lights up a smoke and exhales. At this point he has a look on his face that is pure numbfuck. I had to pause it and rewind it several times. He’s got like a half ass smile on his face and he exhales from a smoke way longer than you’re supposed to. It doesn’t sound like it but it was some of the worst film making in the world. It blew my fucking mind. I haven’t been the same since. I laughed my ass off at it though and maybe this guy deserves some points. Comedy is where the money is and that’s where he needs to head, just pure blown that black guy that’s comedic relief as the main character saying shit like, “Damn Zombie Nigger get your black ass out of here!” and “Once you go black, your brains get blown out the back nyaguh.” “Eat a dick nigger I ain’t scared of no zombies” “You white undead motherfuckers just don’t know when to leave a brother alone, meet affirmative action. *which is a shotgun blast to the head of a white zombie baby* I don’t know this guy and can’t speak for them. He’s making money and good for him, he’s got to get his. I think we all just wish that the movie wasn’t titled Resident Evil and that the Japanese weren’t so fucked in the head that they found just any filmmaker in America to take control of the series. At the theaters they need to give everyone who buys a ticket a joint. I don’t smoke pot but you need to in order to sit through this insipid and lurid affair. Fuck me. Just give me that twenty dollars please. I’ll settle for any kind of a refund.

  • Sydney Rice

    The only movie I liked was the first one- I grew up with the games and loved them very much, so the first movie made some sense to me, it was kind of a “what could have happened to other people in Raccoon City”, a spin-off.

    Fact is, the last few movies have been shit. They’ve been all action (which the RE series is NOT about. It’s about survival horror.) In the second, he starts bringing in CANON characters and fucking them up. Every canon character is somehow a GIANT loser compared to Alice. Now, he’s brought in Wesker (which, as a rabid Wesker fangirl, I was APPALLED at his first actor choice. UGH.) Wesker doesn’t have Las Plagas, you FUCKING MORON. There’s no reason for the axemen to be in the movies. Las Plagas is NOT a variant of the T-Virus. The list goes on, and at this point, I don’t even know who he’s making the movies for (other than Milla and himself) Fans of the games are disgusted by them, and fans of the movies don’t understand all of the references that are being thrown in.

    ALICE IS THE ULTIMATE FUCKING MARY SUE. EVER. She’s somehow “better” than the CANON characters who have experience. She’s supposedly some genius scientist/double agent, she has powers to rival Wesker’s… Seriously, what next. How can we make her ANY MORE like some kind of shitty fanfiction.net Mary Sue?

    Basically, all these movies have been is fanservice to Milla “I have to show my boobs in every movie I’m in” Jovovich (No, seriously. Go rent a few movies she’s been in, and I guarantee most of them you’ll see her tits in. She doesn’t even have that nice of tits. She has a pug nose and stringy hair, I don’t understand why she’s so damn popular, especially since she’s already proven she’s usually not a very good actress.) Although, if I was an idiot slimeball producer with that “hot” of a wife, I guess I would suck up where I could, too.

    Fact is, the people who are DEFENDING this moron aren’t fans of the games, they’re fans of the movies, and they don’t know any better. Unless you’ve grown up playing the games (and I mean ALL of the games, including some of the shittier ones) I don’t feel you have a right to comment.
