Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Is Definitely The Last One, Star Says

"This is really Alice's story coming full circle and it's the biggest and the best."


Resident Evil: The Final Chapter's title certainly sounds like it will wrap up the series, but is it really the last movie in the franchise? It is, according to series star Milla Jovovich, who plays Alice.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jovovich was asked by Kimmel, "Is it really the final chapter?" She replied, "It is. This is really Alice's story coming full circle and it's the biggest and the best."

Though this may be the final Resident Evil movie with Jovovich, it's possible the franchise could live on with another live-action film starring a different character.

Jovovich went on to say that The Final Chapter is a "terrifying" film, so much so that, even though she has seen it three times, she still gets scared. Previously, director Paul W.S. Anderson--who has been behind the camera for every film in the franchise--said it is the scariest movie in the series.

Also in the interview, Jovovich talked about being directed by her husband, Anderson. Some might think this would be awkward, but Jovovich said she's happy to receive instruction from Anderson because he is the director and as an actor, she wants to do her part to bring his vision to life.

That being said, she did punch him in the face once during filming. Anderson was directing Jovovich in an action sequence where she had to punch close to the camera. She accidentally struck Anderson in the face and he had a black eye for a couple weeks, Jovovich said.

The Final Chapter comes to theaters on January 27. It also stars Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black), Ali Larter (Final Destination), and Iain Glen (Game of Thrones).

The newest Resident Evil game, Resident Evil 7, launched on Tuesday for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more, check out GameSpot's review and what other critics are saying.
