Milla Jovovich is set to star in the action-thriller movie “Breathe”. Jennifer Hudson, Sam Worthington, Quvenzhané Wallis, Common, and others. Stefon Bristol directs from a Black List screenplay written by Doug Simon.
The movie, described as an “edge-of-your-seat survival thriller”, is expected to begin principal photography in Pennsylvania this summer.
“Breathe” follows a mother named Maya (Hudson) and her daughter (Wallis) who are forced to live underground after Earth is made uninhabitable due to a lack of oxygen. Only short trips to the surface are made possible by a state-of-art oxygen suit made by Maya’s husband Darius (Common), whom she presumes to be dead.
When a mysterious couple arrives claiming to know Darius and his fate, Maya tentatively agrees to let them into their bunker but are they all they appear to be?
“Breathe” is the second feature from Bristol, who previously collaborated with Spike Lee on his debut feature “See You Yesterday”, which premiered at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival and earned him a nomination for Best First Feature at the 2020 Independent Spirit Awards.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Milla Jovovich in her fan-favorite role of Leeloo in The Fifth Element. And then there’s Resident Evil‘s Alice, who Jovovich presumably left behind with 2016’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But now she’s joined a new science fiction action thriller with a lot of promise. Jovovich is joining two Oscar winners for the post-apocalyptic film Breathe.
As The Hollywood Reporter notes, Milla Jovoich will be starring in Breathe alongside Oscar winners Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls), Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild), and Common (John Wick: Chapter 2). While he apparently has not fully committed yet, Sam Worthington (Avatar) is in talks to become part of the cast. Breathe‘s screenplay was written by Doug Simon (Brotherhood) and will be directed by the award-winning Stefon Bristol who made a big splash with his 2019 Netflix original See You Yesterday.
As the name suggests, Breathe is set in a post-apocalyptic version of Earth where oxygen is in short supply. Most survivors live underground and can only visit topside by wearing special oxygen suits. When the movie begins, Maya (Hudson) believes her husband Darius (Common) is dead. But a “mysterious couple” eventually arrives claiming things didn’t go as Maya and her daughter Zora (Wallis) believe. THR doesn’t name Milla Jovovich’s role, but considering Worthington’s possible addition to the film, it seems likely she’s one half of the aforementioned “mysterious couple.”
Soon, Paul W.S. Anderson will be helming an adaptation of a George R.R. Martin story with his wife in a starring role. Milla Jovovich will appear with Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) in In the Lost Lands. Jovovich plays the sorceress Gray Alys while Bautista plays a “drifter” named Boyce. Together they must fight men and demons at the behest of a love-hungry queen.
According to Variety, Milla Jovovich has also been attached to the action thriller Hummingbird for the past 4 years, but it feels like a “don’t hold your breath” situation. Jovovich was tapped once Munn dropped out. Back in 2018 when Jovovich’s casting was announced, Variety reported production was scheduled to begin that summer, but IMDb still lists the project as in pre-production.
Milla Jovovich has 4.6 million reasons to smile, and just in time for the holidays. The fashion model and “Resident Evil” actress — her films have grossed north of $1.6 billion worldwide — has sold one of her several Los Angeles homes for more than double the $2.2 million she paid for the place nearly two decades ago, way back in 2003.
Over the years, Jovovich and Anderson have amassed a substantial L.A. real estate portfolio. They still own an investment property in the Mount Olympus neighborhood of the Hollywood Hills and a multimillion-dollar 90210 home that’s been described as a “Palm Springs-style midcentury.” But the family’s main residence has long been an $8.5 million, Tuscan-style villa in the mountains above Beverly Hills, tucked up a long driveway and just a quick jog to L.A.’s Coldwater Canyon.
Milla will attend at the amfAR Gala Los Angeles on November 04.21.

Yesterday, Milla walked the runway during Balmain Paris Fashion Week Show SS22. Milla strutted down the stage of a packed music hall on the Seine River in deconstructed garments slit to show patches of bare skin, draped with chains and layered with bold-shouldered jackets or trench coats that swept the floor.

Milla Jovovich is synonymous with the Resident Evil franchise having starred in all six live action films across the last two decades.
However, there is now a reboot in development. Helmed by Johannes Roberts and starring Kaya Scodelario and Robbie Amell, Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City is scheduled for release this November. While Jovovich may not feature, she told Yahoo that it’s a world she’d love to enter again one day.
Speaking in 2020 while doing press for her latest film, the Paul W.S. Anderson actioner Monster Hunter – also adapted from a hugely successful Capcom video game series – when asked if she’d liked to return one day, she said: “Hopefully. Listen, I would love to.
“I love the franchise, I love the property, I had so much fun and it was such a huge part of my life. So I’m always open for anything!”
The forthcoming reboot, based on the first two Resident Evil video games, has encountered a personnel change since its conception, as James Wan left the project as producer to work on Mortal Kombat, and Roberts took over screenwriting duties from Greg Russo. The cast features Kaya Scodelario in the lead role of Claire Redfield, Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield, alongside Tom Hopper and Hannah John-Kamen, and Jovovich predicts they’ll all have had a lot of fun making the movie. And she’d know.
“I think it’s the perfect franchise to reboot,” she said. “It’s amazing and so much fun to be a part of, and I hope they do a great job of it. I’m sure all the actors will have a great time doing it.”
“Resident Evil is such an incredible universe and it’s why the game was so successful,” she said. “I remember when I was playing it, I loved tapping into the darkness of it and never knowing what’s around every corner.”
