On her Twitter page, Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich revealed and confirmed new details on the next film in the franchise, Resident Evil: Retribution. Jovovich confirmed the rumor that Leon Kennedy and Barry Burton will make their first appearances in the series and they’ll be joined by Ada Wong, who appeared in the video games Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 4, and The Darkside Chronicles. Jovovich also announced that Chris Redfield (Wentworth Miller), Claire Redfield (Ali Larter), and K-Mart (Spencer Locke) won’t return but Sienna Guillory will reprise her role as Jill Valentine. Shawn Roberts will also return to play the villainous Albert Wesker. Principal photography is set to begin on October 16th.
Hit the jump for some potentially spoilery details on the upcoming sequel. Resident Evil: Retribution is due out in 3D on September 14, 2012.
Chris, Claire, and K-Mart won’t return because they’ve been abducted by the Umbrella Corporation. Also, fans should expect an epic fight between Alice (Jovovich) and Jill.
Jovovich also tweeted to her fans that the mind-controlling parasite “Las Plagas” featured in Resident Evil 4 will be used in the movie.
The actress also said her husband and the film’s director Paul W.S. Anderson has a massive chase scene planned for Retribution:
