Milla Jovovich and Director Paul W.S. Anderson Return for RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION; Leon Kennedy to Finally Show Up

     August 10, 2011


We’re getting a fifth Resident Evil movie.  I don’t like wrapping my mind around that sentence but writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson and star Milla Jovovich couldn’t care less what I like.  Bloody-Disgusting reports that the two have signed on for Resident Evil: Retribution.  Of course, there are still characters from the video games that haven’t been put into the movies so three cheers for fan-service.  Sienna Guillory tweeted in March that she would reprising her role as Jill Valentine, but BD reports that the part is being recast.  The production is also casting for Barry Burton (who first appeared in Resident Evil 3 and most recently in DLC for Resident Evil 5) and fan-favorite Leon Kennedy.  The character was reported dead in Resident Evil: Apocalypse but Anderson looks like he’ll be making good on his promise that he’ll bring Leon into the mix for the fifth movie.  No word if Claire Redfield (Ali Larter) or Chris Redfield (Wentworth Miller) will return.

Filming will likely begin in October and will take Alice from Toronto to Tokyo.  Resident Evil: Retribution is slated to open in 3D on September 14, 2012.
