A very short post from Milla Jovovich on her Twitter managed to give a major spoiler to the next installment of the "Resident Evil" series. From the filming set of "Resident Evil: Afterlife" on Monday, November 9, the depicter of Alice in the movie franchise wrote, "Valentine MAY b back..."
Jovovich made a reference to another hero character Jill Valentine who last appeared in the second movie "Resident Evil: Apocalypse". The character was portrayed by Sienna Guillory who has not confirmed her return in the role. Guillory reportedly was slated to be back for "Resident Evil: Extinction" but due to other work commitments, she passed on the role and the character did not appear in the third movie.
Jill is a demoted member of Umbrella Corp's elite Special Tactics and Rescue Services (S.T.A.R.S.) who joined Terri, Carlos, L.J. and Nicholai in battling the zombies and taking over the city from the walking dead. It is still unclear how Jill will contribute to the story in "Afterlife".
Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson once again "Afterlife" will be unleashed on U.S. theaters on August 27, 2010. In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend.
A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead leads them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.
