Exclusive breaking news as Bloody Disgusting has learned that Milla Jovovich will be returning once again as “Alice” in Resident Evil: Retribution. We have also exclusively landed the news that Paul W.S. Anderson will direct from his own screenplay. Anderson directed both the first film in the franchise and Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D, which arrived in theaters last September.
Sienna Guillory had posted on Twitter that she will be returning as “Jill Valentine,” although we’re being told that she’s being recast. Who should replace her? They are also casting “Barry Burton”, who was a member of S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics And Rescue Service), and “Leon Scott Kennedy,” a U.S. Government agent, and previously an officer for the Raccoon City Police Department.”
The newly titled pic is gearing up for a shoot this coming October that will take Alice from Toronto, Canada all the way to Tokyo, Japan.
Plot details are under lock and key, but Sony Screen Gems is aiming to have it in theaters come September 14, 2012. An October start date could ensure this.
