New details on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has started emerging in small amounts and never a lot at once. However, the cast of this film has finally been revealed along with details on the story and synopsis. All of it is official and it seems like the movie is well poised to end it all and put a final stop to the evildoings of Umbrella Corporation.
The next film in the Resident Evil franchise is officially in production and the cast is again led by Alice with Mila Jovovich making a return. Collider further states that the cast includes other actors like Ruby Rose, Shawn Roberts and Ian Glen.
You can recognize Ruby Rose from the hit series Orange is the New Black. Other characters to be featured in the upcoming Resident Evil: The Final Chapter movie are Fraser James, William Levy, Eoin Macken and Rola, who is Japanese model and television personality. However, at the moment, it is not clear whether this is the final movie of the franchise. At the same time, the story and ending of this installment has been outlined.
Reports indicate that this movie will begin after the events of Resident Evil: Retribution when humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. Alice is the only survivor and what appears to be humanity’s last stand against the undead hordes. The story sets Alice on a path to return to Raccoon City where it all began.
At the same time, the evil Umbrella Corporation is preparing its forces to unleash a final attack on the remaining survivors of the apocalypse. Alice will join forces with her known allies along with an unlikely one, while she races against time to deal with an action packed battle with hordes of the undead and new mutant monsters.
This will be one of the most difficult adventures of Alice with her losing the superhuman abilities and Umbrella’s impending attack. She is set on the brink of oblivion as she makes her final stand to save humanity. However, it does look like this is the final film in the Resident Evil franchise but weirder things have happened before.
The news has been focusing elsewhere at the moment. Yahoo! News states that a recent on-set accident resulted in serious head injuries sustained by a stuntwoman. Mila Jovovich admitted that she was quite disturbed by the accident which caused serious injuries to 32-year old Olivia Jackson. In early September, while riding a motorcycle, Jackson ran into a metal arm and since then, she was placed in a medically-induced coma for recovery purposes.
Her status is being carefully monitored by hospital staff as she recovers. Many people have considered it a miracle that she survived and her husband and stuntman David Grant revealed that she has been fighting hard for her life. Meanwhile, considering the plot and synopsis of The Final Chapter, this could be the end. At the moment, the film carries on with production for an early 2017 release.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has started photography in South Africa, as announced by Sony Pictures’ Screen Gems. This is also the sixth and last installment of the movie franchise which is actually based on the Capcom video game series. The locations will include places like Johannesburg and Cape Town.
The movie was scripted by Paul W.S Anderson and also directs the movie for Production Company Constantin film. As mentioned before, Mila Jovovich is back as the zombie-slayer Alice and Ali Larter will join her as Claire Redfield.
