Milla Jovovich Say’s She Has Made Her Last Resident Evil Film
It seems that Milla Jovovich has made her goodbyes with the set of Resident Evil.
During the Chanel No. 5 5 L’EAU Dinner in West Hollywood, the model actress shared some of her thought regarding the latest addition and the final installment in the Resident Evil franchise.
Though Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is already the sixth in the series, Milla still had a bit of an experience shooting the movie.
Shooting the last Resident Evil installment was a bit more special since the actress was able to work with her daughter, and of course, there was a new baby on during the shoot. In fact, Jovovich thought that the whole production period was just your typical family affair.
In April 2015, Milla Jovovich and her husband Paul W.S. Anderson (the director of The Final Chapter) had their second daughter, Dashiel Edan. Then the following September, they started shooting the film. The involvement of the family in the film does not stop with mom and dad because their eldest daughter, Ever, would be playing the Red Queen.
A proud mom, Jovovich boasts her daughter’s love for acting and her incredible work in the movie. As a mother, she greatly thinks that her daughter has become more professional during the set, but the young lady also got to enjoy being on the set. Jovovich’s joy did not stop with Ever’s inclusion in the movie, as she also had the time to dote on the latest addition to their family. She recalled having to be nursing the baby while still being covered in blood and with some zombies walking around the set. What made it more fun was some zombies would approach her and comment on how cute her baby is.
It has already been 15 years since Jovovich took on the role of Alice, but it seems that the actress is not quite ready to bid goodbye to her famous character yet.
However, Jovovich thinks that she’s already on her way. The film has just wrapped up the production, and they are already starting with doing some press. Thus, she thinks that eventually she will realize that her journey as Alice has stopped after a few years. And the actress admits that she will Alice and everything about the Resident Evil movie franchise.
On the other hand, Jovovich’s next role would be very far from Alice’s character.
Her next movie will be based on a true story. It tells about the side of the reports who were trying to tell people the real score after the 9/11 attack. In the movie, Jovovic will play the wife of one of the reporters. As a matter of fact, she got in touch in with the real-life counterpart of her character. She felt overwhelmed for being able to portray a character who is still alive, and she felt like she’s doing justice to her role. The actress hopes that she will be able to represent the woman’s character and be able to show the audience who she really is.
For the meantime, people should just enjoy watching Alice go back to the Raccoon City and slay some monsters.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is slated to come out in theaters in January 27, 2017.
