Things appear to be firming up for another film in the Resident Evil franchise with a few comments direct from series star Milla Jovovich herself via her twitter account.
The actress made reference to one of the shooting locations for Resident Evil 5 as well as a possible title for the film. The film is currently scheduled for release during September 2012 which is just under two years following the previous film.
Amongst her comments Jovovich posted the following;
i LOVE tokyo! 1 of my FAVORITE cities in the world! we’re gonna come film some scens 4 the nxt RE in tokyo!!!
Fans of the franchise would know that Japan has appeared in previous films with the opening sequence of Resident Evil: Afterlife taking place within a stronghold of the Umbrella Corporation based in the country.
Further to that comment Jovovich commented;
i think its called RE: Retribution, but i have to ask paul 2 b sure.
The Paul she refers to of course being her husband Paul WS Anderson who has been involved in some capacity with each Resident Evil film to date either in a directing or producing role.
With a release date just over a year away, expect to see details firm up on the next Resident Evil film over the coming months.
