Paul W.S. Anderson is returning to both write and direct “Resident Evil: Retribution”, the fifth installment of the popular video game adaptation reports Bloody Disgusting.
Star Milla Jovovich is also back as Alice for the Tokyo-set entry in the franchise which will also see the return of Jill Valentine, though it looks like that part may be recast rather than having actress Sienna Guillory reprise the role which was a major character in the second and made a brief appearance in the fourth.
Other new characters include Barry Burton, a member of S.T.A.R.S., and Leon Scott Kennedy, a U.S. Government agent. Shooting could kick off as early as October, with a September 14th 2012 release already set.
Anderson penned all the previous ‘Resident’ movies but directed only the first and fourth one. He’s currently putting the final touches on his new “The Three Musketeers 3D” feature which hits theaters in October.
