We’ve already known that production has begun on ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter‘ and now the studio has released both the cast list and official synopsis for the film. As the last installment of the post apocalyptic world brought upon us by The Umbrella Corporation, this is the last time we’ll be seeing Milla Jovovich suiting up as Alice and kicking some monster butt! From zombies to genetic mutations to the most sinister little AI to ever exist, this video game adaptation has taken on a life of its own which has grown a cult following. Love it or hate it you can’t deny that they’ve been making enough money at the box office to keep coming back for more.
As the last installment before the eventual reboot we’ll be seeing Milla return along with Ali Larter, Iain Glen, Shawn Roberts, Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken, William Levy, Fraser James, and Rola.
As to what we can expect with Alice’s last outing? You can check out the official synopsis below:
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.
I’m glad that we won’t be jumping forward in time, as the cliffhanger from the last installment seemed to be the perfect lead in to another film, and that is exactly where we’ll be. I’m wondering who the unlikely ally will be, assuming it isn’t a certain previous villain who was having his own possible last stand play out in ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’.
