‘Resident Evil: Begins’ Gets Official Title, Will Be a Reboot

Sony's Screen Gems division has decided on an official title for their fifth Resident Evil installment. Called Resident Evil: Begins, this latest chapter in the long-running franchise will be a reboot that takes the series back to the horror roots of the original video game upon which it is based.

Resident Evil: Begins

Resident Evil: Begins will be set in 1998, before the events of the first film took place. Series star Milla Jovovich will once again portray the character Alice, and we will see her before she became the tough action hero we know today. Sienna Guillory will be reprising her role as Jill Valentine, and will actually take the lead. Instead of the main push of the story being placed on Alice, Valentine will be at the center of a major viral outbreak caused by Umbrella. There is no word yet if CGI will be used to de-age either actor.

There is also a possibility that a new video game will arrive based on Resident Evil: Begins, which offers players the chance to be either Alice or Valentine, with the goal of slowing down the viral outbreak.

Resident Evil: Begins will be in 3D.

Resident Evil: Retribution was released September 14th, 2012.
