Back in August, Resident Evil franchise star Milla Jovovich revealed that production had been delayed on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, because she and her husband/director Paul W.S. Anderson are expecting their second child. She said then that shooting wouldn't happen until the summer of 2015. Now, the actress confirms in a new Facebook post that shooting will begin this August. Here's what she had to say in her post from Tuesday.
"I'm really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously (get ready wardrobe department for Alice's new 'easy mama access' costume;)) so I don't want to be on any extreme diets to get ready to go back to "action hero" mode!"
Before the actress and filmmaker knew they were expecting, pre-production was already under way in Cape Town, South Africa, with the production expected to return to that location, along with several others. We also reported in April that Resident Evil: Retribution star Bingbing Li is expected to reprise her role as Ada Wong, with Wentworth Miller also set to return as Chris Redfield from 2010's Resident Evil: Afterlife. No other cast members have been confirmed for what is expected to be the last installment of the franchise.
