Milla Jovovich, who returns as Alice once again, reveals via Twitter that Chinese actress Li Bingbing (The Forbidden Kingdom) has landed the role of “Ada Wong” in the now-filming Resident Evil: Retribution.
Ada is a cunning and formidable secret agent for the mysterious and powerful group known as “Organization”.
She joins Sienna Guillory, Colin Salmon, Shawn Roberts, Boris Kodjoe, Michelle Rodriguez, Johann Urb, Oded Fehr and Kevin Durand in Sony Screen Gems’ fifth Resident Evil film directed by Paul W.S. Anderson from his own screenplay.
In theaters September 14, 2012, Urb plays the leader of the Resistance, who teams with Jovovich’s Alice character as she battles the Umbrella Corporation and the swarm of undead. The group will head to Russia, Japan and Toronto for the shoot.
*Update: An early-morning stage collapse Tuesday on the Toronto set has sent ten crew members and actors to the hospital, says THR. 16 people were injured after a group shifted weight from one platform no another. The Toronto Star newspaper reported that a dozen actors dressed as zombies had been moving across the soundstage platform when it collapsed. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening.
