While doing press for his latest movie Death Race, Paul W.S. Anderson took some time to address one of the most pressing issues of our time: the fourth Resident Evil movie. Would the army of cloned Alices from the end of RE3 appear in the sequel? After much prodding, io9 got Anderson to at least admit that should said video game movie be made, there WOULD be an army of sexy lady clones. io9: Are We Going To See An Army Of Alices? Anderson: We're in very early discussions about all of it, so it's not a definite thing by any means. Mila would like to return, and I would certainly like to see the franchise continue. Last year there were, I think, eight 'threequels' got released. Rush Hour 3, Pirates 3, Spider-Man 3...but there was eight of them. Shrek 3. Six out of the eight, the third movie did worse business than the second movie. There were only two where the third movie did better than the second movie. That was Bourne Ultimatum and Resident Evil. So, you know, it is quite an achievement for a franchise to keep growing like that, and we all feel that the audience is excited to see another one clearly. We would like, if we could put it together, we would do it. io9: Right, but hypothetically how would you go about using all of those Alices? Anderson - I'm not going to tell you that. [laughs]... but we would io9: You would? Anderson: We would, yes. Absolutely.

@Punkhippy: The third was awesome — the postapocalyptic Vegas setting was just so striking. I feel as though there has been a whole postapocalyptic Vegas motif lately in movies and books.
