More Resident Evil Casting

Working towards a mid-September 2012 release date production on the next Resident Evil film is continuing to progress. With Paul WS Anderson directing we’ve already received news of Milla Jovovich and Resident Evil 2 cast member Sienna Guillory (Jill Valentine) both returning in the new film, however it now seems another familiar face for the franchise will be returning for ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’.

It seems that the ‘Resident Evil 1’ character ‘Rain Ocampo’ will be in the new film, and for those of us who don’t recall just who that was specifically, the character was portrayed by actress Michelle Rodriguez back in 2002. Some of you may recall that this character became a zombie in the first film, so what this means for the new film remains to be seen, it does fuel rumours however that the character may feature via flashback scenes, prequel scenes, or lastly some story twist that is going to allow the character return presumably in more of human form than a zombie one.

Looks like we can only speculate for now until further details emerge but it leads to the question, out of all the Residence Evil characters who have been killed off in the series so far, who would be your number one choice to return? Let us know in the comments section below or via the facebook page.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
