We kind of knew this already after Milla Jovovich tweeted some news a month or so back, but it has now been confirmed. Milla Jovovich WILL be returning as Alice, and Paul W.S Anderson (who directed the first movie and also Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D) will be returning to direct. Whether or not anyone cares anymore is another matter as the Resident Evil films never really took on in the way they should have.
The plot details are heavily guarded right now, but we can tell you that the movie will move from Toronto, Canada to Tokyo, Japan. The film is set to begin filming in October, with Sony Screen Gems aiming for a September 14th 2012 release date. We will keep you posted on further developments!
