When Milla Jovovich reprises her role in Resident Evil for the sixth time in the Sci-Fi franchise, she’ll be joined by Latino hunk William Levy. RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER has already commenced principal photography in South Africa. Hopefully Levy doesn’t become one of the early casualties.
No word about which character Levy will play in the movie but we are excited to see what role he will have in this post apocalyptic zombie world that has grossed over $1 billion worldwide to date.
The film is once again being directed by Paul W.S. Anderson who also wrote the screenplay. The film is currently shooting on location in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Milla Jovovich will reprise her starring role as Alice. Other headline cast includes Ali Larter (“Heroes,” Resident Evil: Afterlife) as Claire Redfield, Iain Glen (“Game of Thrones,” Resident Evil: Extinction) in the role of Dr. Alexander Isaacs, Shawn Roberts (Edge of Darkness, Resident Evil: Afterlife) as Albert Wesker, Australian actress Ruby Rose (“Orange is the New Black”), who has a huge social media presence, as Abigail, Eoin Macken (“The Night Shift”) as Doc, Cuban American actor William Levy, one of People en Español’s reigning 50 Most Beautiful, as Christian, Fraser James (“Law & Order: UK”) as Michael, and Japanese model and TV personality, Rola, as Cobalt.
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion
Screen Gems will be releasing the film in January of 2017.
