Milla Jovovich ‘would love to’ return to Resident Evil franchise

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.”

Milla Jovovich: ‘Beauty is meaningless if you don’t know who you are’

Milla Jovovich’s riveting looks have captivated the movie world for decades, but success has come at a cost. She opens up to Louise Gannon about humiliating sex scenes, overcoming drug problems and fending off Hollywood sharks

Milla Jovovich has lived a life less ordinary. The Ukrainian-born actress and former model began working at just nine years old and appeared on magazine covers shot by Herb Ritts at 11. She’s appeared in more than 40 movies, recorded music with her friend Bono, and modelled for Chanel and Dior. She is worth £35 million, a figure doubled if you include the estimated wealth of her husband, screenwriter and director Paul W S Anderson. But that success came at a price. Childhood trauma, underage sex scenes, being preyed upon by ‘sleazy older men’ and drug abuse that nearly killed her.

Milla Jovovich Praises Daughter’s ‘Incredible Talent’ After Her Performance in ‘Black Widow’

Milla Jovovich is one proud mom. Milla says she couldn’t be more excited for her daughter to follow in her footsteps. Jovovich opened up to ET’s Ash Crossan about Ever, who will soon be seen playing a young Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson’s character) in Marvel’s Black Widow.

“On the one hand I’m terrified because I know how difficult this industry is,” Jovovich said, of her daughter’s ambitions when it comes to acting. “And on the other hand, I’m overjoyed because I feel like my child has found their passion, and she has been very focused on it since she was five years old.”

“She’s grown up on sets with her dad and I and, you know, it seems like that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” Jovovich shared.

As for the high-profile role in Black Widow, the opportunity couldn’t have been more perfect for young Ever.

“We call her Baby Widow,” Jovovich joked. “She’s such a fan of the Marvel movies and you know, Ever is just such an incredible talent. She’s just a real natural and it was so wonderful to watch her on set.”
“I mean, literally, she had everybody crying during one of her scenes! She’s amazing,” she added. ‘I think people are going to be really, really impressed when they see the movie next year.”

Meanwhile, Jovovich’s latest sci-fi action thrill ride, Monster Hunter, just hit theaters Dec. 18. The movie — based on a hit video game series of the same name — was written and directed by Jovovich’s husband, and her role was penned specifically for her.

“You know, Paul has such a huge imagination and he was the dungeon master when he was a teenager. He was always the one writing all the scripts for him and his friends to play Dungeons and Dragons for hours, so, you know, I love that part of him,” Jovovich said of getting to work alongside her husband.

“For me, I’ve always been such a big fan of sci-fi and fantasy myself, so he allows me to be able to go into these crazy alternate universes and he writes these incredible characters that do extraordinary things and makes me feel like a superhero,” she added. “So you know what’s not to love? I think we have so much fun together.”

Anderson previously directed his wife in multiple installments in the Resident Evil film franchise, which is reportedly getting a reboot in the near future. After starring as the heroic and deadly Alice in numerous installments in the long-running franchise, Jovovich seemed supportive of a new take on the story.

“I read about it online and you know it’s such an amazing universe and it’s such a great game, it’s so beloved by the fans. I’m not surprised that it’s being rebooted,” she shared. “It’s something that was so much fun to film for me, and I think everyone’s going to have a great time doing it.”

First full Monster Hunter trailer

After several years of trying to take down zombies in Resident Evil, Milla Jovovich is teaming up with an army of soldiers to take on a mega monster invasion in Monster Hunter.

Based on Capcom’s popular game franchise, Monster Hunter follows Jovovich’s Captain Artemis and her team as they’re transported to an alternate universe where monsters reign supreme. Without any knowledge of how to kill monsters (it’s not exactly something most people on Earth have to deal with), Artemis and her unit partner with a mysterious man named Hunter (Tony Jaa). Alongside Hunter, it’s up to the team to figure out a way to fight and destroy the various monsters they encounter to protect their home.

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil, Mortal Kombat), Monster Hunter looks like a mashup of Mad Max: Fury Road, Resident Evil, and a touch of various Godzilla creatures in the monsters’ designs. It also looks like quite the departure from the Capcom series, which allowed players to roam around an open world and fight monsters in slow, carefully paced battles.

Based on the trailer, I also wouldn’t prepare for any kind of stellar dialogue writing — but I do like that we’re at a point where we’re referencing random Marvel Cinematic Universe movies (in this case, Guardians of the Galaxy).

Monster Hunter is scheduled to hit theaters this December, but just like nearly every movie this year, the film could be delayed.

“Showbiz Kids” at HBO

Milla Jovovich shot to fame after she first appeared in a magazine cover. This was after she was spotted by a photographer at the age of 11. By the time she turned 24, she had several professional achievements under her belt including a teen elopement and annulment, a second husband and a divorce. In HBO’s new documentary ‘Showbiz Kids’, Jovovich gets candid about how she started out in show business and how her mother’s constant push affected how she grew up under the spotlight.

‘Monster Hunter’ Pushed Back to 2021
Sony Pictures has pushed back fantasy thriller “Monster Hunter” by six months, from Sept. 4, 2021, to April 23, 2021.

It’s the latest in a long line of major studio movies to be moved back amid uncertainty over when most North American movie theaters will re-open following four months of being shuttered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sony’s romantic comedy “The Broken Hearts Gallery” is among the first scheduled, with an Aug. 7 launch.

“Monster Hunter,” written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, is loosely based on the Capcom video game series of the same name. The film also stars Tony Jaa, T.I., Ron Perlman, Meagan Good and Diego Boneta.

Live Action Film of Hugo Pratt’s Corto Maltese Coming in 2020

2020 will see a live action based on Hugo Pratt’s comic anti-hero, the swashbuckling sailor “Corto Maltese”. Directed by Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf/Silent Hill) the movie will star Tom Hughes – who at the very least has the sideboards for the role. Nothing wrong with that, I say as a sideboard sporter myself.

Unfortunately, the picture has the tinge of a ‘throw everything in’ Euro-pudding, with a Paul W. S. Anderson vibe due to the the presence of Milla Jovovich in the cast, as well Gans regular Mark Dacacos (John Wick III). Real life character the randy Russian monk Rasputin puts in yet another fictionalized appearance – after the recent Hellboy reboot and upcoming The King’s Man.

As Maltese is little known to English-speaking audiences, will the movie follow the so-so performance of other relatively recent Euro comic adaptations such as Largo Winch, Valerian, Blueberry, Dylan Dog, Adele Blanc-Sec and Snowpiercer?

The little storyline of upcoming film “Corto Maltese”: At the dawn of the 20th century, Corto Maltese, a sailor and an adventurer, is hired by a Chinese revolutionary group, The Red Lanterns, to hijack an armored train carrying the gold of Russian Emperor Tsar Nicolas II from Saint Petersburg to Vladivostok. Corto Maltese will be joined in this task by his partner in crime Rasputin, but they won’t be the only ones chasing the coveted treasure in this land torn between the Chinese, Japanese and Russian armies.
