Resident Evil: Apocalyse: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Screen Gems and Constantin Film are going forward on a sequel to last year's action thriller Resident Evil with the film's star Milla Jovovich reprising her role and second unit director Alexander Witt making his feature film directing debut on the project. Production will begin in August in Toronto.

Like the original, Resident Evil 2 will be based on the video game series. It will pick up where the last film left off, with Jovovich reprising her role as Alice, who is left to search for ways to contain a deadly viral outbreak while trying to escape the ruined Raccoon City with fellow survivors.

Paul S. Anderson, who wrote and directed the first installment of "Evil," wrote the script for the sequel and will produce along with his Impact Pictures partner Jeremy Bolt as well as Bernd Eichinger of Constantin Film and Sam Hadida of Davis Films.
