Milla Jovovich, the leading actress of the Resident Evil film series and wife to the series’ writer, Paul W.S. Anderson, has mentioned on her Twitter account that in the new film we will be seeing new characters introduced, in the form of videogame favourites Leon S. Kennedy, Ada Wong and Barry Burton. Milla also divulged that the film will include the Las Plagas Parasite, as seen in the Resident Evil 4 videogame. Whilst I don’t think the fifth film will follow the storyline of the fourth videogame, it’s obviously taking some ideas to please the hardcore Resident Evil fans. It’s well noted that the film series’ writer and part director, Paul W.S. Anderson, regularly consults the fans of the game as to what they would like to see in the film, as well as playing the games himself.
The fifth Resident Evil film will be shot in 3D and will be released September 2012
