Michelle Rodriguez Confirmed For Resident Evil: Retribution

Michelle Rodriguez is coming back to reprise her role of Rain in Paul WS Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution, which is shooting in Toronto. Rodriguez appeared in the first movie, also directed by Anderson, but (SPOILER ALERT) she didn’t quite make it to the end. That probably means flashbacks, or cloning, which is a thing in the Resident Evil filmverse.

The news comes from Bloody Disgusting, which also reports that Shawn Roberts’ return as Albert Wesker will take the form of a cameo. We’re still processing the wealth of information Milla Jovovich provided via Twitter earlier this week about Resident Evil: Retribution about some of the returning characters and plot points. The ongoing shoot will eventually extend out to Japan and Russia, with a release set for Sept. 14, 2012.

    So, how ridiculous has this series gotten? I gave up after the third one (Extinction? Apocalypse? Who knows, who cares). Despite some goofiness, the first one was pretty decent, but it swiftly moved into trainwreck territory when they essentially turned the protagonist into a super saiyain.

    This series is good fun, solid B-Movie fun.

    It hasn’t gotten ridiculous at all – it is what it is.  Solid, action/ horror/ adventure.  Your absence hasn’t been missed.

    Apparently the series is doing quite well for itself since the powers that be continue to make more. I loved the 1st one and the next 2 were… OK, but the last was pretty decent. With a bigger budget (45 million per film?) couldhave an AWESOME film.
