Resident Evil 5 Moving Along…

More casting news has been circling around as Milla Jovovich looks to be returning with some familiar faces for the next instalment in the Resident Evil franchise. Paul WS Anderson looks to be at the helm of directing duties once again in this instalment and it appears that Sienna Guillory will return in the role of Jill Valentine.

Followers of the franchise would recall Jill Valentine appearing in the second Resident Evil film as well as having a very brief appearance at the end of Resident Evil 4.

There appears to be no word either way regarding the chances of Ali Larter returning to the franchise for a third time, nor is their confirmation on whether Wentworth Miller will return as Chris Redfield.

Resident Evil 5 is currently scheduled for a release in mid-September 2012, with shooting due to start later this year. Expect to see more casting announcements as the project moves closer to principal photography.

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.
