The first live-action film based on Resident Evil was released in 2002, starring model-turned-actress Milla Jovovich and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Alien vs. Predator). Seven years later, the fourth film based on the survival horror series has begun production...with Jovovich starring and her now-husband Anderson writing, producing, and directing.

As revealed at this year's Comic-Con, Resident Evil: Afterlife will be shot in 3D and is slated for a September 2010 release. It will be the first of a three-film arc, which would bring the total number of live-action movies based on the game to six, including Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) and Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)--both of which also starred Jovovich.

According to Screendaily.com, Jovovich will be joined in Afterlife by Extinction costars Ali Larter (Heroes) and Spencer Locke (Spanglish). Joining the cast will be Wentworth Miller, star of the increasingly improbable (and now concluded) television series Prison Break. He will play the role of Chris Redfield, an ex-pilot and recurring series character who was the protagonist of Resident Evil 5. Also on board are Shawn Roberts (Supernatural), who will assume the role of antagonist Wesker, and supporting players Boris Kodjoe (TV's Soul Food) and Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy).

You can't fix the series problems by throwing 3D at it. I thought the first one was the best, before alice got super powers and the entire series circled the drain.

The tough Chris, The cool claire and the bad ass super human wesker well, lets wait till sept to chk out if they have screwed up or not !!!

i know that the movie would be good but can't they stop using the game's characters only for their names, Jill never appeared with Chris and never did Claire talked about his mighty bro

Oh dear God, wonder how they'll screw up Chris. We all know they will, they screwed Jill up pretty bad, then Claire... the Claire of the movie didn't even slightly remind me of her video game counterpart. Claire is supposed to be a sweet, but tough girl. She can hold her own but she is also caring, she is not that... whoever she was that we saw on the third movie. The only thing those two girls shared in common was their name. And good God, don't even get me started on Wesker. Anderson, if you can't pay the series the respect it deserves then please leave it to someone who can

Man, hollywood strikes back, I've never seen the first movie, but the second and third ones are just regular "go through some places, watch some people die" kind of movies, I hated the way that they treated Jill on the second one, and now it's Chris's turn... tough to be honest, I'm rather curious how will they make him a second character

they should change the title of the movie and they should not put Chris Redfield or anyone else from the real game in the movie anymore because its not resident evil. The movies aren't that bad they just have nothing to do with the games so therefore would be better off not called resident evil

@ Glade_Gnarr: To be honest, I think that Uwe Boll might be an upgrade, given the direction of the films. Besides, he did do House of the Dead...

considering that the quality of the films has been declining since the first one from cool action movie to cheesy but fun zombie movie to crap, I think the last one is going to be the worst picture of all time. Maybe Ube Boll will direct it.

Oh dear, 2009 has media wh@#es milking off the video game franchises. They did that to Nintendo then. I admit that the first film wasn't bad but it certainly wasn't good.

the 1st movie was decent and when they decided jovovich should be the star and not follow the games for the sequels is where it all started going down hill. As i recall the 1st movie was suppposed to be a zero/prequel and the sequel would have taken the story of RE1 in the mansion and etc. but hollywood logic is hey this movie made alot of money so it must be because of jovovich she needs to be in every sequel from now on! and that ladies and gentlemen is the tragedy of it all
