As we all kind of suspected, Milla Jovovich and Paul WS Anderson return for Resident Evil 5

08.10.2011

This news is surprising no one but Milla Jovovich and director hubby Paul WS Anderson are returning to star in and direct RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION, the fifth installment in the horror franchise. Filming on RETRIBUTION is scheduled to begin this October for a 2012 release.

I'm not exactly sure if horror fans still get really excited over the RESIDENT EVIL franchise (you tell me...) but Jovovich and Anderson seem to get some money enjoyment out of it and get to spend time together as a family while working so I guess more power to em. And in fairness, while the pic was a modest hit there in the US, the last installment made over $300 million worldwide.

What exactly will RETRIBUTION be about? Who knows, zombies, probably. But the shoot takes place in Toronto and Tokyo some maybe that's a hint?

In addition to Jovovich, Sienna Guillory was rumored to be returning based on one of her own tweets but yesterday Bloody Disgusting reported that Jill Valentine will be returning for the fifth film but that Guillory will be recast.

Jovovich and Anderson last worked together on THE THREE MUSKETEERS, which hits theaters this October.

Guillory has now tweeted that the "recasting" is merely a rumor and that she is always on the Resident Evil team. It's kind of an ambiguous tweet... we'll see. Maybe it is just an odd rumor.

Recasting Jill Valentine? Sienna Guillory was the ONLY reason why I had ANY interest in this movie. If she's gone then I won't see it. Eh, whatever. She's probably better off. Crappy franchise. Apocalypse was entertaining but the other movies suck. :(

Wait a minute...

There are Resident Evil movies? I remember Milla Jovovich flying around and doing a bunch of kung-fu... and oh yeah, there's zombies, but I don't remember there being any Resident Evil movies...

You have to hand it to this franchise for being able to make many sequels with the same actors playing the same roles. Quite a rare feat today.

I'm trying to think of a franchise that is aimed at the joblo readers (i.e. fanboys) that is worse than RE. Can't think of any. Even bad franchise have at least one great film, but RE is just mediocre.

Bring it on!

I dig the RE movie franchise. Sure, it's different than the games, but it's different in a fun and action-filled way. They haven't bored me yet, so keep bringing 'em on! :D

I'm down if Sienna is back. These movies are fun as hell. I know the acting and story sucks, but they are still fun. Mila is hot, Ali Larter is hot and Sienna is damn HOT! Throw some zombies at these chicks and how can anyone complain? It's not Inception people, chill the F out.

Dude, u want hot? Rent Wild things, or even piranha 3d. Look, I'm all about hot chicks, but this is based on a game that revolves around horror, suspense and zombies. Eye candy is great but I'm not coughing up $12+ to see 'hot chicks' like a pre-teen.

Glad about the movie, pissed that they would DARE recast Sienna. Jill is one of the characters that has been great and so closely resembled the games. Also, Wentworth Miller better be back as Chris!

RE sucks!

I don't know where they are going with this franchise. It doesn't even make sense who they are fighting anymore. They tried to get away from RE then in the fourth installment they went back and brought back Jill, with the same costume as in Resident Evil 5, why I don't know I guess they are totally out of ideas. But it doesn't even make sense! Why is Umbrella so evil? The world has ended leaving people living in a crappy, hellish world. Why do they gotta be still causing hell for the survivors?

The original idea for Umbrella was to make money from military biological weapons. So what is there purpose now? To be just plain evil? That's stupid.

What?

Sienna would be the only reason I'd watch this. If she's not on this, I wouldn't see it. The end credits was the only reason I watched the last one.

Recasting?!

Sienna is flawless and their decision to recast her is epic fail.

I'm sure it's just due to Guillory's schedule, same as why she wasn't in Extinction. This project has been kind of up in the air for a little while as far as I have been able to tell and now it's zooming in to high gear... maybe she already had contractual obligations elsewhere.

Guillory just tweeted "siennaonretribution", so... whatever that means.
Would suck if she didn't reprise Jill in this one. I'm hoping for some backstory involving her and the little girl from Apocalypse branching off to find Leon after discovering he's not actually dead, then being abducted/brainwashed by Umbrella. Wishful thinking, I know... but really, story is secondary in this series. I'm in it for the superbly accomplished action set pieces!

Wow, I'm shocked that there are so many positive ratings on this franchise. I don't judge the movie harshly on changing it's source material because this is a movie, not a game. What I do judge it harshly on is it's awful dialogue, terrible acting, lack of suspense and decline from horror-action to weird "matrix" style action. If they made a cool movie based on apocalyptic zombie elements from the game then it'd be one thing... instead we get half-assed action movies with zombies thrown in

If there was ever anything in need of a reboot, this is it.

Good

I'm a huge RE game fan and I love these movies. When will people understand that watching a movie based on something that you've already seen and played would be boring as hell. I'm glad their back but I want Sienna back.

Eh, the fourth movie was entertaining while in the theater, but I am kind of over the series. Sure, they left off with kind of a cliffhanger, but the only thing I can really see them doing is some kind of spinoff or sidestory. At this point, however, they are really just stretching the story thin.

It is no secret I absolutely adore this franchise, particularly its most recent 3D installment (easily the best 3D I've seen for many a reason)... so while my butt was already assured to be in the seat regardless, W.S. returning to the helm for the follow-up is *fantastic* news!

I really like this franchise and hope they keep making them past the 5th installment. I personally also like the fact that there action movies with zombies. There is about 100 zombie movies that come out every year that stick to the regular zombie cliches. I am not afraid to admit it so keep up the good work.

Reboot!

Start again and make it a horror movie rather than an action flick. I want zombies to be scary again!

I'm looking forward to it. They're fun, over-the-top action flicks. Bummer Sienna won't be back, though, her scene at the end of the last one was pretty cool.
