The film adaptation of the Resident Evil video game may finally get a proper reboot soon as Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Resident Evil” film series is finally coming to an end.
Titled “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter”, the film is the 6th and last installment of the long-running Resident Evil franchise. Actress Milla Jovovich who plays Alice, the female protagonist in the film, has recently provided a film update through her official Facebook page.
The film update came on the heels of the announcement that she and her husband Paul W.S. Anderson were expecting their 2nd child together last August. She revealed through her post that the production of the film has been delayed to accommodate her pregnancy. While trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle for the baby and herself, she has also revealed that the she is ready to reprise her role as Alice when the film starts shooting in August this year.
Her statement is as follows:
I’m really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming “Resident Evil- The Final Chapter” in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously (get ready wardrobe department for Alice’s new “easy mama access” costume;)) so I don’t want to be on any extreme diets to get ready to go back to “action hero” mode!
The filming locations have not been announced yet but according to ComingSoon.net, the production was initially set to begin filming in Cape Town, South Africa. Paul W.S. Anderson will return to direct the film while Wentworth Miller will return to reprise his role as Chris Redfield.
“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” is slated for release on 2nd Sept 2016.
