The first details of the fourth installment of the Resident Evil movie franchise have been announced.
It was confirmed back in July that a fourth Resident Evil movie was in the works, and that Milla Jovovich had signed up to reprise her role as Alice, the series' protagonist. Resident Evil 4: Afterlife will take the action back into an urban setting; specifically a zombie-infested Los Angeles. The relatively short plot synopsis reads:
"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."
Personally, I'm rather pleased that the action is heading back to the city, because the Mad Max-esque desert thing that Resident Evil: Extinction had going on seemed like a strange split from what the themes of the games had been. Whether or not the new setting means that the movie will be good or not, however, is an entirely different question.
