Resident Evil 5 Coming 2012, Milla Jovovich Returning

Screen Gems has announced that Resident Evil 5 will be released on September 14th 2012. It looks like previous plans to reboot the franchise have been scrapped as Milla Jovovich is returning for the fifth installment. It's unknown at this point if Paul W.S. Anderson will be back in the director's chair but it's very likely.

It's expected that Ali Larter (Claire), Wentworth Miller (Chris) and Boris Kodjoe (Luther) will also be returning. Continuing the events of Afterlife which saw Alice, Claire and Chris on the ship with survivors as a fleet of Umbrella choppers swarms them. Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory) is expected to be the film's main villain as she was seen in the chopper with the mind controlling scarab device in her chest. Milla recently tweeted a possible "big-boss" villain could be the Bandersnatch.

"The games have nearly always had a major mutant to battle against. In the coming Resident Evil 5 movie, I think the 'Bandersnatcher' should be the next boss battle. This creature looks like Swamp Thing on steroids and with one arm that can stretch to 6x it's length."
