The sixth and final Resident Evil film was originally die for release in September last year, however, star Milla Jovovich became pregnant, putting the film on hold. Naturally fans are delighted for Jovovich, and now finally we may have some concrete evidence of when the long delayed Resident Evil 6 will begin shooting.
The working title of the film is Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and will see Jovovich return as Alice, with her husband Paul W.S. Anderson returning to direct.
Jovovich recently posted an update on her Facebook page about getting ready to give birth, and in that message were some details on the new Resident Evil film:
“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!,”
According to CS, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is making its way towards a September 2, 2016 release, a time that’s proved to be a lucrative one for the franchise for the last four films. The movie will also see the return of Wentworth Miller’s character, Chris Redfield.
Back in October there were also rumblings of a Resident Evil TV series, which would follow the final film. There were no confirmations of whether Jovovich or Anderson would be involved.
