Milla Jovovich has unveiled various details of her upcoming sci-fi thriller “Resident Evil: Retribution”. Through a series of spoilerish tweets over the weekend, she revealed what characters are in and out, and plot details of the fifth “Resident Evil” film.
Jovovich announced that Wentworth Miller and Ali Larter will not return to the upcoming installment of the video games-adapted film franchise.
“Chris, Claire and K-Mart get abducted by Umbrella in this one, so no [Miller] won’t be in this movie,”
so she wrote to a fan.
The 35-year-old Ukrainian actress furthermore clarified that Jensen Ackles will not play Leon Kennedy as rumored before, because he is now busy working on a TV show. Nonetheless, she confirmed that Leon and other fan favorite characters like Ada Wong and Barry Burton will appear in the next film.
“Shawn Roberts is back as [Albert] Wesker and more badass then ever! Of course its not so easy to kill him!”
She also added that the new film will include new creature called Las Plagas parasite.
As for the plot, the former wife of director Luc Besson shared that there will be more action scenes in
“R.E. 5”, including a major one which will be shot in Red Square, Moscow and another one that involves a Rolls-Royce getting shot. She spilled the beans on her action scene, “I’ve got an amazing fight with a bunch of zombies and an epic fight with Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory)!”
In a related news, Jovovich responded to rumors about the possibility of a sixth “R.E.” film.
“We would love to make a sixth where everyone is back together,” she dished. “But the fans will decide after they see this one!”
“Resident Evil: Retribution” will begin the production on October 16 with Paul W.S. Anderson still tackling the helming duty. Jovovich will reprise her role as Alice, while Boris Kodjoe will be back to play Luther West. The film is slated for a September 14, 2012 release in U.S. theaters.
Even before The Three Musketeers (from now on display in German cinemas) in the U.S. will start in the cinemas, is behind the scenes already worked extensively on the latest Resident Evil offshoot. Milla Jovovich as revealed on her Twitter page, the training for the fight scenes in Retribution has already begun. Get support on the performer by Robin Shou, who in Mortal Kombat, also by Paul WAS Anderson set the scene, the main role embodied. They also re-affirmed that the contract has now been signed with Sienna Guillory and definitely be seeing them again in the role as Jill Valentine is. The rumors that Ryan Kwanten the figure assumes the Leon S. Kennedy remains, currently uncommented continue. Also, is not yet certain, will be whether Wentworth Miller and Ali Larter once again seeing as Chris and Claire Redfield. If everything goes according to plan, the film will start late 2012 in U.S. cinemas.
Одна из сцен пятой части «Обители зла» будет сниматься в Москве на Красной площади, сообщила в своем твиттере актриса Милла Йовович. «Да! Мы сделаем большой экшн на Красной площади», – написала она большими буквами, видимо, не в силах сдержать радость от того, что удалось договориться с российскими властями.
Новости о продолжении известной франшизы последнее время посыпались одна за другой, и то, о чем раньше говорили только на уровне слухов, замыслов и предположений, наконец-то обрело официальное подтверждение. Как и ожидалось, роль Элис снова исполнит Йовович, а история начнется с того, чем закончился четвертый фильм, вышедший в сентябре 2010 года. В оригинале картина будет называться «Resident Evil: Retribution» (Обитель зла: Возмездие).
Пол У.С/ Андерсон снова напишет сценарий, будет режиссером и продюсером, – как в первом и четвертом фильмах серии. Именно «Жизнь после смерти 3D», последняя часть «Обители зла», стала самой прибыльной в рамках франшизы: при бюджете в $60 млн (вдвое большем, чем было у первого фильма в 2002 году) она заработала почти 300 млн, после чего стало ясно, что избежать продолжения не получится. В пятой части также снимется Сиенна Гиллори.
Правда, особых подробностей об «Обители зла-5» пока нет: Андерсон и Йовович заняты раскруткой своей весьма вольной интерпретации «Трех мушкетеров» Александра Дюма, где актриса играет Миледи, а мушкетеры больше занимаются кунг-фу и постройкой аппаратов в стиле стилизованного паропанка, чем упражнениями со шпагами. Второй трейлер фильма можно посмотреть на видеовставке.
Пока что известно, что съемки новой «Обители» пройдут в октябре–декабре этого года, в основном в канадском Торонто. Что именно будут делать спасающиеся от толп зомби герои картины в Москве, когда будут сниматься эти сцены, – неизвестно. Правда, продюсеры могут решить, что дешевле построить нужные декорации в студии, а не возить съемочную группу в далекую Россию.
There was a time when a psycho thriller like Faces in the Crowd would have received a wide theatrical release. There was also a time when such a movie would have been legally required to star Ashley Judd, but that’s another matter entirely.
Julian McMahon and Michael Shanks co-star in writer/director Julien Magnat’s serial killer chiller Faces in the Crowd that sees Milla Jovovich as the sole survivor of a serial killer who now finds herself suffering from a condition that makes it impossible for her to recognize faces, particularly the killer still at large and stalking her.
Face blindness, huh? Kind of like how in Color of Night Bruce Willis was so traumatized by a bloody death he lost his ability to see the color red. One can only hope Faces in the Crowd turns out better than Color of Night. But then Color of Night didn’t feature a serial killer named “Tearjerk Jack”.
Anna (Milla Jovovich) may be the only survivor of serial killer Tearjerk Jack’s horrendous reign, but left with “face blindness”, she is completely unable to identify him – or anyone else. Now, with only a loyal detective’s (Julian McMahon) face familiar to her, she cannot trust anyone as she struggles to resume her normal life and, plagued by fear and a vindictive Jack, to survive.
You will not be seeing writer/director Julien Magnat’s Faces in the Crowd at a theater near you anytime soon. Instead you should look for it on DVD and Blu-ray October 25th. A digital copy appears to be the only DVD extra included in this Millennium Entertainment/First Look Pictures.
Have a look at the trailer and cover art below. I take back what I said earlier about this being tailor-made for Ashley Judd. If I suffered from face blindness, I’d watch this trailer and be convinced Faces in the Crowd was an early-to-mid-1990’s Madeline Stowe thriller.
The Playlist have kindly just forwarded their twitter feed where the WME agency representing Milla Jovovich, Kate Beckinsale & Sofia Vergara have denied the story;
But…. isn’t it an interesting idea? Someone should make this….
Bleeding Cool report that various tracking boards are spreading the rumour today that Milla Jovovich, Kate Beckinsale and Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara are wanted for a proposed movie adaptation of J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell‘s comic book series Danger Girl.
First published in 1998, the series is like James Bond meets Charlie’s Angels and focuses on a group of female secret agents mentored by Deuce (who is basically Bond). This means that there could be as many as four major female heroines in the film adaptation and it’s likely that all three women are wanted for separate roles in what could be a female version of The Expendables, especially if the leads of the Underworld and Resident Evil franchises are secured.
Producer JC Spink is said to be shopping the proposed movie around studio’s but it’s not yet clear if a script is being/has been written and it seems unlikely a director is attached yet. Clearly though Spink is looking to capitalise on the untapped female led bad-ass action genre which right now only Beckinsale & Jovovich’s long-running respective franchises rule.
Spink is probably banking on the idea that if he can get Beckinsale or Jovovich to star then their respective partners/mindless hack directors Paul W.S. Anderson and Len Wiseman would be interested in directing and BAM – a genuine tentpole would be found.
I imagine all three characters will be translated free and loosely to mold the actresses’ who end up playing them; It’s about time we had more female led action franchises, wouldn’t you say? And anything that took Beckinsale and Jovovich’s attention away from Underworld and Resident Evil suits me!!
Paul W. S. Anderson, Milla Jovovich and Logan Leman to attend festival opening in October.
TOKYO – Paul W.S. Anderson’s The Three Musketeers is to open this year’s 24th Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) on October 22.
Anderson, along with Mila Jovovich (Miladay) and Logan Leman – who plays D’Artagnan – are all slated to attend the fest, which will once again be at the Roppongi Hills complex in central Tokyo.
The world premier of the latest installment of Anderson’s Resident Evil – a spinoff from the Japanese videogame maker Capcom’s best-selling series – was held in Tokyo in September last year, with Jovovich in attendance.
The Three Musketeers will be released in Japan on October by Gaga, which is headed by TIFF chairman Tom Yoda.

A horror-thriller centered on a woman living with “face-blindness” after surviving a serial killer’s attack. As she lives with her condition, one in which facial features change each time she loses sight of them, the killer closes in.
Bringing Up Bobby is the story of a European con-artist, Olive (Milla Jovovich), and her 10 year old American born son, Bobby (Spencer List), who find themselves in Oklahoma in an effort to escape her past and build a better
future. Olive and Bobby blithely charm their way from one adventure to another until Olive’s criminal past catches up with her. Consequently, she must make a choice: continue with a life of crime or leave the person she loves most in an effort to give Bobby a proper chance in life.
Milla Jovovich has admitted to suffering nightmares about zombies since joining the Resident Evil franchise.
The Perfect Getaway star, who has appeared in four instalments of the horror series since 2002, shared her surprise at how the relatively “normal” movie-making experience had managed to affect her subconscious.
“I have a lot of zombie nightmares,” she told the Mail On Sunday. “Work has permeated my consciousness. I don’t even like scary movies, but I’ve lived for ten years inside this world of horror images.”
Detailing the dreams, she continued: “I’m being chased, they’re closing in on me. It’s weird, because the actual making of the movies is very normal. The zombies are on set drinking coffee, having a cigarette and chatting. It’s so banal. Then I close my eyes sometimes and they’re after me.”
Despite her troubling dreams, Jovovich identified the “fanboy” fascination with her Resident Evil character Alice as a greater concern.
“The fanboys have a big crush on me,” she said. “The Resident Evil films I’m in originate from a computer game, and I’m aware that some people out there have feelings for me, but I’m careful about my life and my space. I don’t accept personal mail from anyone any more, for example. You can’t please everyone.
A fifth entry in the franchise, entitled Resident Evil: Afterlife, is due for release in September 2012.
Jovovich was the first person to reveal the title of the new film back in May.
Getting down to business on her new project, Milla Jovovich was spotted on the set of “Bad Luck” yesterday April 10.
The “Zoolander” actress looked to be taking a break from filming as she had a cigarette break outside on the lot.
Milla also enjoyed a surprise visit from her husband Paul W.S. Anderson, who ended up sticking around until she was off and taking her home.“Bad Luck” is about a group of friends who find their lives changed when the superstitions they don’t believe in begin to come true.
