Production is underway on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Paul W.S. Anderson’s conclusion to the massively successful Resident Evil franchise, and the cast has taken to social media to chronicle their last go-round on set. The film reunites series stars Milla Jovovich and Ali Larter as the ass-kicking heroines Alice and Claire Redfield. The pair will be joined by returning castmembers Wentworth Miller as Claire’s brother Chris, and Iain Glen‘s nefarious Dr. Issacs, as well as newcomers Shawn Roberts, Orange is the New Black breakout Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken, William Levy, Fraser James, and Japanese model and personality, Rola.
For The Final Chapter, the franchise is heading back to its roots, picking up immediately after Resident Evil: Retribution in Alice’s quest to stop the Red Queen from eliminating the few human survivors. The Final Chapter is currently filming in South Africa, and the cast has shared a number of photos from the set, offering a glimpse at makeup tests, costumes, and a few of the new characters.

Here’s the official synopsis for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter:
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.
