Reuniting series stalwart Milla Jovovich with Ali Larter – on board to reprise her role as Claire Redfield – The Final Chapter is poised to do good on its evocative title and bring the curtain down on the studio’s lucrative video game franchise. Acting as the sixth and final film in the Resident Evil series, Screen Gems has confirmed that Paul W. S. Anderson will return at the helm. With Jovovich and Larter’s places secure, the final installment will also feature Iain Glen, Shawn Roberts, Orange is the New Black breakout Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken, William Levy, and Fraser James.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will, much to the surprise of no one, see humanity on the brink of extinction – haven’t they always been since the original film in ’02? – as Jovovich’s heroine Alice plots course for the scene of the original T-Virus crime: Racoon City. Intending on bringing down the Umbrella Corporation once and for all, Alice’s journey is made all the more difficult now that her superhuman abilities are on the wane. Will she be able to pull off the impossible?
