When it comes to video games being adapted for the big screen, we have seen failure after failure, with most of them failing to capture what makes the games so successful. However, there is one franchise that has been just as successful on the big screen as it has been as a video game and that is the Resident Evil movies.
It is fair to point out that the hardcore Resident Evil video game fans do not approve of the Resident Evil films, as they feel that the movies do not stick close enough to what the video games offer. With that said though, the Resident Evil movies have made a huge amount of money and we are getting one last instalment on the big screen, with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.
We already know that Milla Jovovich is returning to play the lead role of Alice the movie and now it has been confirmed that actress Ali Larter is back to reprise her role as Claire Redfield in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. This will be the third movie that Ali has played the role, after previously appearing in Resident Evil: Extinction in 2007, and Resident Evil: Afterlife in 2010.
Paul W. S. Anderson is back to direct Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, from a screenplay that he has developed, with production set to get underway in September in South Africa. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is set to hit the big screen on September 2, 2016. It is expected that a new Resident Evil television series could be set to follow the final movie in the franchise.
