Last week, we told you that actor Boris Kodjoe had recently joined the cast of the upcoming sequel Resident Evil: Afterlife alongside Milla Jovovich. According to Empire, two more actors have signed on to co-star, and one of them is already familiar with the franchise. Ali Larter will reprise her role from Resident Evil: Extinction, while Prison Break alum Wentworth Miller has also been cast in the film.
Larter will return as Claire Redfield, the supporting character she played in the third film, while Miller’s role isn’t as easy to describe. There’s no name, no nothing on this guy, not even a vague character description. Nothing has been confirmed beyond the fact that the actor has officially signed on, so we’ll have to leave it at that until the studio decides to spill the beans.
Even though they’re being tight-lipped about the film’s premise, co-star Kodjoe gave us a small dose of what we can expect in Afterlife.
“I play the leader of the survivors in LA,” says Kodjoe. “Milla Jovovich’s character, Alice, is roaming the world looking for survivors and… she comes across an LA jail… and she lands on top of the roof and partners up with me to fight the guys that are coming after them. We’re trying to get all of the survivors out of the jail to safety.”
I wonder if their going to overlook the fact that Alice went all supernatural in Extinction? If you haven’t seen the film, spoilers ahead. Remember in the third film, she had developed those creepy powers from her stay at the Umbrella lab? It was a weird addition to the nonexistent story that film had to offer. I hope they get rid of that.
What do you think of Wentworth Miller, and Ali Larter joining Resident Evil: Afterlife?
