Good and bad news about the next Resident Evil film, Resident Evil: Retribution. Millia Jovovich, aka Alice, announced on twitter that the next film will feature Leon S. Kennedy, Ada Wong and Barry Burton. The bad news is that she also said that Chris and Claire Redfield and K-Mart will not be in the movie. Their absence will be explained as them being captured by Umbrella, this makes two times that’s happened to K-Mart and one and a half for Claire, who narrowly escaped the first time but not before being placed under Umbrella control.
The plot will follow Alice, along with Leon, Ada and Barry, as they try to find Claire and the others. Though I’m guessing that since the actors aren’t going to appear in the film, they aren’t successfully located thus leaving it open for yet another sequel, which doesn’t bother me in the slightly. Also set to appear in the film is Boris Kodjoe, who will be reprising his role as Luther West (possible love interest for Alice).
So far no actors have been announced to play Leon, Ada or Barry. However, Jovovich did say that Jensen Ackles, who was previously approached about the role, is filming Supernatural and will not be playing Leon. Sienna Guillory will return to play Jill, this time for more than ten seconds. In fact, Jovovich said that Alice and Jill will have a huge fight scene, which should be fun. Shaun Roberts will also make a reappearance as Albert Wesker, hopefully this time he won’t die a million times. We’ll have to wait a year to find out though as the film isn’t scheduled for release until the 14th of September 2012, but I’m sure we’ll have some casting news soon as shooting begins in October.
What do you think about this news? Who would you cast as Ada, Leon or Barry? Do you secretly long to be in a post-apocalyptic zombie infested world? If not, why not? Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below. Also don’t forget to subscribe and click the like button.
