Oh boy, I hope they have learned from the mistakes they made with their Resident Evil adaptation.

There are no mistakes. They need to produce stuff to hold licences, just look at the Hellraiser movies or the Terminator saga. On the other hand, it's basically better to build up from an already successful storyline, than making something entirely new that possibly never gets back the cash they spent on film production and marketing.The mistake is always the few that rises from nowhere and earns critical and fan applause. They never count that as a possibility, but then it becomes the cash cow just like the adaptations. As long as people don't vote against this with their wallets, it stays as it is now.

I see very little chance that they will do this franchise justice. Most likely it will be completely reimagined as to make it their own. I hope Im wrong.
