The final film of the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, has begun shooting in South Africa. Screen Gems just announced the start of production and confirmed the cast list for this last R.E. movie. Milla Jovovich and Ali Larter return in starring roles with support from Iain Glen, Shawn Roberts, Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken, William Levy, Fraser James, and Rola. Paul W.S. Anderson is back at the helm and also wrote the screenplay.
This sixth Resident Evil film is expected to shoot in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Anderson, Jeremy Bolt, Robert Kulzer, and Samuel Hadida are producing the action horror film and Screen Gems is aiming for a January 2017 theatrical release.
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.
