Actress Ali Larter says that when the filmmakers of the upcoming sixth “Resident Evil” film have dubbed it ‘The Final Chapter,’ they really mean that this is the end of the series.
Speaking about her return in the role of Claire Redfield in the movie, she tells IGN that the whole point of the film’s script is to wrap up everything that has come before:
“I know it is. We are not allowed to say one thing. I am held to secrecy, but what I can tell you is that the script is amazing. They’re really wrapping up the whole series, so that just makes it a little more poignant. To be able to come back and reprise my role as Claire and my relationship with Alice, with Umbrella Corp. – you know, I’m excited to get back in it. I think the fans are just going to be beyond excited.”
Larter is also keen to return to the franchise and to star opposite her old onscreen partner Milla Jovovich:
“How many movies have this kind of fanbase and get to be made six times? I think that’s extraordinary. It’s a total testament to [series star] Milla [Jovovich] and Paul. I’m so grateful to them, that they chose me to be a part of it halfway through, and they’ve kept me along for the ride. I love that it’s not seven men and one woman. I mean, these are two women, and they’re not competing with each other. You know, there are such easy cliches these two could fall into, but this is definitely a female power movie.”
Shooting on the final “Resident Evil” kicks off in Cape Town in South Africa later this month under the helm of Paul W.S. Anderson.
