Action series star Milla Jovovich reveals possible subtitle of upcoming horror film, which will be partially set in Tokyo.
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.
There it is, a classical example of a movie pushed throught our throats that we ended loving it. But for christ sakes, the movie is good and all, but stop calling it "horror film". It's an action movie.
Rumor has it that RE5 movie will have time travel, ie zombies that can ride motorbikes etc. Currently filming in Toronto/Tokyo/Moscow/Time Square. Release date Sept 2012. Movie is based on RE4 and RE5 vid games.
"bandtnt to anyone who hate Milla Jovovich,do you hate her because she is a terrible actress or for some other reason.Milla is a fantastic actress,she devoloping her career and sharpen her acting talent continuously.for me SHE is a Goddess." SURE thats why we never see here in any movies except this C-movie resident evil wannabe.Its not about her its about the character....she's a egoist b.....since she want to be THE HERO and none else.the only movie she was enjoyable was maybe in the fifth element since her mouth was shut during the whole movie
keep killing the franchises with these stupid movies that dont even come close to the video game in terms of characters depth and story.these movies should be a in the B category or even worse.
they might make a game based on this movie who's the mian leader is jill and the secondry one is alice they said there is possiblities to make a game out of it!!
I'm surprised these are still going. They are just plain awful and Paul W.S. Anderson is the worst director ever!
Worst movie ever changing form survival horror to action movie. I wonder what's next aliens vs zombies
these movies keep getting more corny each time but the action is pretty entertaining, especially in the last Resident Evil movie. it's also pretty cool that they used some of the enemies from the games for the movie.
go mila lol mint films love everyone of them plus haveing an amazeing actress like mila play the main role is a plus
@RESIDENTEVIL_VI thanks for the advice but i said that because there a lot of people hate her because she want to be the only hero on the movie and i never see any RE film have a good story always a horrifying story like Wesker dead in afterlife a lot of time .... what a heck is this we need to see something really earn to be a Resident Evil title like resident evil degeneration
ya know, fans of this horrible series definitely aren't the fans that love and play the original games, because the games ( at least the early ones ) are creepy and give you an isolated sense of impending doom...... the movies, or movie I should say ( because they all seem like the same ONE movie) are grade 'C' , badly written, BORING action movies, without a scare or creep out in sight.... I say REBOOT!!!.........NOW!!!.....please.
@ winnazdaluza I agree. Originaly, the first RE movie was written by zombieking George H. Romero. But the movie studios prefered the script of popcorn king Paul W. S. Anderson. Now I wonder how the Romero script was... Probably better?
Thankgoodness ubisoft is saving the video-game movie genre.When people see what video game movies should be like versus the horrible RE movies maybe they will stop making horrible movies and actually focus on making good movies based on the game rather than imagining some horrible scripts and slapping the video game franchise name on it.
to anyone who hate Milla Jovovich,do you hate her because she is a terrible actress or for some other reason.Milla is a fantastic actress,she devoloping her career and sharpen her acting talent continuously.for me SHE is a Goddess.
@ahmed_2014 altough i hate her too but u should have said (i) hate her talk about urself my advise cuz some people like her
I don't get it, Capcom took the RE game series to an absurd direction with RE5 and fans criticize Capcom for it, but for the film series, people find it okay? RE5 and the film series have the same level of absurdity!
And not to knock anyone's opinions or anything, to each his own of course, but just for the record when my friend and I saw Afterlife in theaters last year (due to boredom), we literally laughed out loud during half the movie. It was so terrible....
Someone needs to reboot the RE film series and actually follow the storyline of the games. These movies are awful.
i would like to see LEON KENNEDY in this upcoming film.. that would be awesome.. Plus, Leon is the main protagonist in every RE live action film..
You know, why not end this stupid story-line and reboot series? Have a different cast and film makers, and use a revise version of George A. Romero's script.
@sirbobislost Oh well it seems RE playing gamers want a reboot and B rated gory movie lovers want more. Which one do you think is the minority? Lolol i'm just kidding, eventually they ought to reboot it. This year is RE's 15th anniversary!
If Alice gets her powers back, and the RE characters are MORE ACCURATE, I might pay for a theater ticket, and buy it on Blu-Ray u_u ... P.S.: Sienna Guillory is no where near as hot as Jill Valentine, and Wentworth Miller and Shawn Roberts made Chris and Wesker look like intentional jokes.
personally the first 2 were the best, and once the dried skin "clone looking with identical uniform" zombies of 3 came it felt lame. afterlife made a strong recovery, but kept using to many cliches: i have an army of clones... now they are dead, i lose my powers to reboot the challenge, we saved everyone on the ship... oh noes incoming bad guys wait till next time. unfortunatly they have put themselve into a corner with where they can take the story, most of the world is undead now; so whats left to fight for? I loved RE apocalypse because of the setting: a outbreak of the virus rampaging through a populated city with plenty of chaos and sequel potential. When they decide to finally reboot, with or without the same actress, they need to avoid the whole extinction plotline, or at least save it till the final movie.
I really don't care what anyone thinks, but I actually like all the RE movies. I take them for what they are and don't expect too much. They are better than any other video game based movies. So, I guess they would be the lesser of the evils.
No more Paul W.S. Anderson rip offs they have steadily gone from bad to unwatchable please somebody put the wounded horse out of its misery
You want my moneyPaul Anderson!? well how about this how about you divorce Milla, give her back to me, and you start making video games movies the way they were told. GIVE ME MY WIFE BACK!!!
oh and 2.5million of that shooter? its goona need to be hugely improved from what gamespot showed us if it wants to sell that much
Dang it. I thought they were going to do a complete reboot with this series, by fixing its core mechanics that didn't work and improveing on what was already great. In other words, do an RE4 movie.
I don't know about this...! I loved part 3! I think they did just a wonderful job with that! But Afterlife was a huge letdown! I hate when series strip the hero of their powers just to show the hero go through adversity. I hate when they pulled that stunt on the tv show "Heroes". To me that was the beginning of the end of that show. Alice was awesome in part 3, I just don't think stripping her of her powers was a good move for me.
