Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City Director Teases Where He'd Like To Go With A Sequel

Thanksgiving could be a horrifying time for some in the best way possible, all thanks to "Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City." Based on the iconic Capcom survival horror series, the new film is set to get close to the grisly bones of the video game franchise and set a taster for more of what its director already has planned next.

While it may seem a little early to be thinking ahead for this new vision of the beloved game series, it's not like it hasn't happened before. Milla Jovovich helped bring "Resident Evil" to the big screen back in 2002 and proceeded to fight hordes of the undead for six more films. "Welcome to Raccoon City" director Johannes Roberts isn't looking that far ahead just yet, but he has shared some exciting ideas of where he'd like to take his new vision of this nightmarish world next. More specifically, it's leading into some of his favorite chapters of the games he played in the past.

This Resident Evil director has his eye on Code: Veronica

Speaking to ComicBook.com, "Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City" director Johannes Roberts revealed that if the studio gave him the go-ahead to go back to the world of "Resident Evil," there would be two key titles he'd love bringing to life. "I'm obsessed with the fourth game. I love 'Code: Veronica.' I mean, it's a slightly different universe-ish," Roberts explained before going on to name-check "Resident Evil 7" and deeming it "terrifying."

The director continued, remarking, "There's so much interesting stuff in the 'Resident Evil' world. And we've got to have Chris Redfield punching a boulder at some point. So, there's a lot that I want to put in."

Released in 2000, " Resident Evil – Code: Veronica" was one of the first games not released on the PlayStation when it debuted. A Sega Dreamcast title (yeah, that old), the game took place after the events of "Resident Evil 2," and saw zombie-shooting siblings, Claire and Chris Redfield (played by Kaya Scodelario and Robbie Amell, respectively, in "Welcome to Raccoon City") fending off the undead on a prison island and a research facility. 

We can only hope if Roberts gets the chance to crack the code after "Welcome to Raccoon City" shuffles into cinemas on November 24.
