The sixth film in Screen Gems’ Resident Evil film series is gearing up to start production for release next year, and is subtitled The Final Chapter. In order to amp up the early anticipation machine for the film, star Milla Jovovich has shared a glimpse behind the scenes on social media.
Sharing the image on Instagram, Jovovich is getting a cast made of her face before full-on production of the film begins in the next few days. See the image below.
In the image, Jovovich includes a caption saying,
Well, the moment so many of you have been waiting for is finally here where I can tell you that it’s zombie killing season for the Jovovich-Anderson clan! Here I am getting my face cast made for “resident evil: the final chapter”!! I leave to South Africa tomorrow to start prepping for the movie!
She and her husband, director Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Event Horizon) have teamed on every Resident Evil film. While Anderson has served as screenwriter for all the previous entries in the series, and has directed the first, fourth, and fifth films. He’s returning to the director’s chair to bring this iteration of the franchise to a close, along with Jovovich, who will reprise her role as Alice from the previous five films in the series.
Although the vast majority of video game-derived feature films are poorly received — with all of the Resident Evil films being no exception based on their RT scores — some critics have singled out the Resident Evil films as being some of the first in the video game movie genre to successfully emulate the actual play experience of Capcom’s iconic survival horror series. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is currently slated to be released either at the end of summer or beginning of fall in 2016.
