Though Capcom has yet to offer much official word on the next Resident Evil silver screen entry, the franchise's leading lady is having no trouble talking about it.
Answering fan messages on social network behemoth Twitter recently, Milla Jovovich--who plays heroine Alice--said the name of the fifth series film is not titled Resident Evil: Begins, but "might" be called Resident Evil: Retribution.
"No, its not called 'begins' lol! it 'began' 10 yrs ago! lol! i think its called RE: Retribution, but i have to ask paul 2 b sure," she said.
The "Paul" she is referring to is likely Paul W.S. Anderson, producer of the Resident Evil series who is a likely candidate to produce the 2012-dated fifth entry.
Jovovich also offered information as to where the film will be, at least partially, set.
"I LOVE tokyo! 1 of my FAVORITE cities in the world! we're gonna come film some scens 4 the nxt RE in tokyo!!!," she tweeted.
The most recent Resident Evil movie was Resident Evil: Afterlife, which debuted in September 2010. It has grossed nearly $300,000,000 worldwide according to statistics from Box Office Mojo.
The next Resident Evil game will be Slant Six's Resident Evil: Raccoon City, a squad-based third-person title that GameSpot recently previewed. The game, which Capcom expects to sell 2.5 million units of, is landing on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 this winter.
