The Resident Evil franchise has become the most lucrative video game adaptations in cinematic history, and although the main story directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, has already ended with the film “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter”, the post-apocalyptic story continues to live its own life.
In just a few weeks, the animated series Resident Evil: Endless Darkness kicks off on Netflix, and Andrew Dabb, best known for his work on Supernatural, is leading yet another multi-part universe project. It, as it became known a little over a week ago, will star Lance Reddick (“John Wick”), who will play Albert Veseker, star of Charlie’s Angels reboot Ella Balinska, as well as Tamara Smart (“Artemis Fowle”), Sienna Agudong (” Nick Will Show You “) and Paola Nunez (Bad Boys Forever).
On top of that, in December of this year, fans of the franchise will also premiere on the big screen – the film “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City”, whose team got back together last month to re-shoot individual scenes. In general, the “Resident Evil” universe has a lot of projects, and, as it turned out, Milla Jovovich, who was at the center of the original story, does not exclude that one day she will return to the role of Alice again.
In a recent interview, the actress stated:
I never say never. Resident Evil has always been such a wonderful part of my life. I love Alice, I love the franchise, and I love Netflix! So I mean anything is possible.
By the way, Anderson answered a similar question with almost the same words, but it should be borne in mind that such phrases are typical for representatives of the film industry who do not want to be too unambiguous. Now the director and Jovovich are working on a new project – the adaptation of George Martin’s story “In Lost Lands.”
