"Resident Evil: Afterlife" will see the return of another star and the joining of another newcomer to the franchise. In an interview with Black Film to promote "Surrogates", newly-appointed cast member Boris Kodjoe revealed that Ali Larter and Wentworth Miller have been added to the cast ensemble.
"It's gonna be Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, I'm the new one, and Wentworth Miller is also in the movie," Kodjoe gushed. "He's the lead in 'Prison Break'." While Larter is expected to reprise her "Resident Evil: Extinction" role as Claire Redfield, he said Miller will be "playing a guy that we actually locked up when we took over the jail because we weren't sure if he was one of them or not. He comes into play as we try to find a way to get out with our survivors."
The 36-year-old further talked about his part in the fourth installment of the "Resident Evil" franchise. "I play the leader of the survivors in LA," he shared. "Milla Jovovich's character, Alice, is roaming the world looking for survivors and she's wound up in LA, which has been burning for three years. She comes across an LA jail surrounded be these half-dead, uhh..."
Set for August 27, 2010 U.S. release, "Resident Evil: Afterlife" continues Alice's battle with the diabolical Umbrella Corp. as she races to expose a virus that is threatening mankind with extinction before a new race of clones called the Undead finishes the job. Paul W.S. Anderson serves as director as well as producer, in addition to writing the movie's script. Shooting is scheduled to begin in Toronto in October.
