The sixth and final entry in the Resident Evil franchise is currently in production in Cape Town, South Africa, and series star Milla Jovovich has shared a curious new image from the set. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter picks up immediately after the events of Resident Evil: Retribution, in which humanity finds itself on its last legs. Along with old friends and an unlikely ally, Alice must return to where it all began, Raccoon City, and stop the Umbrella Corporation from launching its final strike against the remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
In this new image, we see Jovovich in some pretty heavy makeup as “Old Alice”. But don’t worry, the spoiler-averse will be happy to know that this is not from a sequence at the end of the movie. Does the film flash forward? Is there a time-turner involved? Where’d she get those pretty pearls? At this point we have no idea, but the makeup job is certainly impressive.
Paul W.S. Anderson, who originated the franchise, returns to direct this final installment with Ali Larter, Iain Glen, Shawn Roberts, Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken, William Levy, Fraser James, and Rola filling out the cast. Check out the image below, shared on Jovovich’s Instagram, followed by an official synopsis.
#nomakeup JK! thank you to @christinaslashes, @andreartista and @kerry_skelton_ who worked for over 4 hours at 5 am this morning to create "Old Alice" for our scenes today! I will post more pics of the process later! Plus a sexy selfie(not for the weak of heart!) btw, for all those who think this look is for the end of the movie, it's not! #residentevilthefinalchapter #capetowndiary
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.
