Great news for lovers of film. The Resident Evil film canon has grown with the announcement that Resident Evil: Retaliation is moving forward. Believe it or not, Milla Jovovich will return with Paul W.S. Anderson will once again direct from his own screenplay. Actress Sienna Guillory, however, will not slip on a tube top for the role of Jill Valentine this time around. Reports are that role will be recast. No word on what effect this will have on the tube top.

I feel like these movies will continue to be made until they run out of cool words to tack onto the title. When that happens, it’s time to reboot. (Bloody Disgusting)

Everyone is aware of the old adage, “if you adapt a video game into a movie, you will create an unholy abomination.” The highest rated film on Rotten Tomatoes‘ video game adaptation list was Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, which got as high as 44% fresh. Yikes. However, sometimes game movies make quite a bit of cash, like the Resident Evil series has for Screen Gems. So Screen Gems is gonna load Capcom’s Devil May Cry into the Hollywood Game System and press play, in order to make some serious gold coin.

Gonna end the non-specific video game puns right… here. Awesome.

Devil May Cry, which was initially developed as a Resident Evil game, before it was spun-off into its own series, follows demon hunter Dante on a quest to avenge the death of his mother. He could just visit a grief counselor, but that wouldn’t be much of a game, I guess. Unless his grief group consisted of demons. Anyway, the script will be written by Kyle Ward, who penned the upcoming game-adaption Kane & Lynch.

Now if only Capcom could get a live-action Street Fighter movie made that does suck Balrogs, I’d be happy. (ScreenRant)

‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’ Trailer Utilizes Cutlery http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/resident-evil-afterlife-trailer-utilizes-cutlery/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/resident-evil-afterlife-trailer-utilizes-cutlery/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Go from the outside in. The first trailer for Resident Evil: Afterlife really wanted you to know that the film is in 3D. This one also wants you to know that it's in 3D, but it has kind of a story sort of too. Milla Jovovich is back as Alice, and she's fighting more zombies and umbrellas, only this time with the help of an old friend -- Ali Larter back as Claire. The guy from "Prison Break" (Wentworth Miller), who plays Claire's brother, helps the two aggressive females try and take back Los Angeles from the walking dead.  The film is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, the other, worse Paul Anderson in the helming game. He directed the first Resident Evil movie, wrote the other two, and I guess decided he wanted to tell his wife how to throw stuff that will be added in later at the camera for the 3D installment of Resident Evil. One question: why is this thing coming out in IMAX? Aren't those screens being used for films like, I don't know...Inception. I realize that Resident Evil: Afterlife doesn't come out until September, but Inception should still be in IMAX then. The studio must be banking on the fact that audiences will never tire of axes flying at their faces. Check out the trailer after the jump...

Will someone accessorize their tube top with a gun holster in Resident Evil: Afterlife? Answer is yes. Actress Milla Jovovich tweeted that Sienna Guillory will return to the role of Jill Valentine in the sequel.“So to answer many of your questions in one fell swoop, yes!

In other Resident Evil news, ultimate-re has released a new "3D" poster for the movie. But be warned, it's 3D in the same sense that the "Lost" finale supplied closure.CHECK OUT THE POSTER AFTER THE JUMP...
