Earlier this month we stated that Sony Screen Gems may recast Jill Valentine in Resident Evil: Retribution, while other news outlets misreported stories claiming Valentine was being omitted from the sequel entirely.
Director and franchise producer Paul W.S. Anderson cares about the franchise’s fans and proved it today having just closed a deal with Sienna Guillory to strap on her zombie stompin’ boots for the 3-D sequel filming later this month in Toronto, Japan and eventually Russia.
Milla Jovovich, who will return as Alice, confirmed the news via Twitter: “i can’t reply right now, but wanted 2 let u all know that Sienna Guillory @guillorybe closed her deal on the new RE movie! we r so excited!!”
She’s excited? How about the entire Resident Evil community?! Now if only Anderson would write Sienna a LARGER ROLE. We want to see Valentine kickin’ some arse! Screen Gems fights Umbrella Corp. once again on September 14, 2012.
