Sony Pictures revealed an ambitious film slate that includes RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER in that mix.
And they promise that this will be the last one.
A few cast members will return in this final installment, including Milla Jovovich (Alice), Ali Larter (Claire Redfield) and Shawn Roberts (Albert Wesker). New faces will include Ruby Rose as Abigail and William Levy as Christian.
First footage was shown at the Sony Presentation at CinemaCon 2016 in Las Vegas. The following details may be considered as SPOILER ALERT until it releases the first trailer.
The events will take place immediately after the events of RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION. Alice takes a crew back to where everything started—Raccoon City. A voiceover says that this will be her final story.
The footage has quick glimpses of zombies, monsters, explosions and gunfire. It also has new costume looks for Alice, Claire Redfield and Albert Wesker.
The important plot detail revealed was an airborne virus may reverse or end the whole zombie apocalypse.
The project is written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.
The film is scheduled for a January 27 in 2017.
