Resident Evil: Retribution starts filming next week in Toronto and director Paul W.S. Anderson recently provided some new information on the upcoming movie, including how it ties into the game series and his relationship with Capcom.

Here are some highlights from his recent interview with Collider:

-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.

-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.

-Retribution takes place in Tokyo, Moscow, and North America. They’re filming in all three locations.

-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.
