I received dozens of e-mails from you guys regarding another website’s story that Sony Screen Gems would be changing Jill Valentine’s character into one Ana Wong in Resident Evil: Retribution. We didn’t report it because, well, it just wasn’t true.
Thankfully, Sienna Guillory, who starred as Valentine in Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Resident Evil: Afterlife, cleared the air via her official Twitter page. The actress spoke of what we eluded to a few weeks back when we reported that she may be recast. She’s in “new talks”.
“Big day tomorrow! Meeting Paul Anderson and Jeremy Bolt and Robert Kultzer to see what my future looks like,” said Guillory.
So, as we previously reported, Guillory still may return as Valentine if she can work out a new deal with producers. Hopefully we’ll have something official in the coming weeks as shooting gears up.
Paul W.S. Anderson is directing Resident Evil: Retribution in Russia, Canada and Japan, with Milla Jovovich reprising her role as Alice. Screen Gems will release September 14, 2012.
