The fourth installment of the Resident Evil film franchise is on its way with production having already begun in Toronto. Titled, Resident Evil: Afterlife and entering into the 3D genre, the movie brings back Milla Jovovich’s Alice character back to put an end to more zombies and the like.

Also returning to the franchise are two of the characters from Resident Evil: Extinction: Ali Larter’s Claire Redfield and Spencer Locke’s K-Mart. That’s not all though! If you’re a Prison Break fan, you’ll be happy to know that Wentworth Miller has signed on to play Chris Redfield, the brother of Ali Larter’s character and star of the recently successful Resident Evil 5 video game.

This is exciting news for fans of the films, especially knowing that there is a lot more to come in the future from the Resident Evil series. Recently, reports have popped up revealing that this movie is set to kickstart an entire second Resident Evil trilogy. Conflicting reports later revealed that the fifth film is some sort of reboot tentatively titled Resident Evil Begins.

We’re not sure what that means as of yet, but as we get more info, Screen Rant will keep you in the know.

I imagine that what we’ll see in the background or conclusion of Afterlife will present the setting of fifth installment which will follow a team of military folk (read: victims) against a “powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating creatures after a laboratory accident.”

I wasn’t a big fan of the last two Resident Evils but I did enjoy the first for what it was. I’ll probably end up seeing this out of curiosity in hopes that its slightly better and the addition of Wentworth Miller certainly helps sell the flick.

What do you think about Wentworth Miller coming on board, and are you in for another set of Resident Evil movies?

  1. I know the other Resident Evil weren’t very good but I always enjoyed them because of the material. They always remind me of the original game too which was a great experience.

  2. I thought they were AWESOME! Bring us more Alice kicking some buttocks!! WOOHOOOOO!!!

    My two girls and myself LOVE the RE movies.

  3. Oh that sucks..NOOOOO…Wentworth cannot play Chris Redfield he just doesnt seem to fit that part well. Bring someone else out like Thomas Jane or something but not Wentworth.

  4. Yes, Wentworth! I haven’t seen any of the Resident Evil flicks, but I will now. Went can show his versatility. I think lots of people will be pleasantly surprised. Congratulations, Wentworth :) -

  5. IMO I think Dominic Purcell could be a great Chris. I can’t really see Wentworth as him but then again we’ll see how it fans out. It is a Resident Evil movie franchise after all.

  6. Actually Chris Redfield was one of the main characters of the first resident evil game with Jill Valentine.In his first appearance he wasn’t so buffed up like he is in RE5.I think the game developer did it to differentiate Chris from Leon who was the pretty boy of the series while making Chris the macho one.

    Either way i’m more worried in how their going to portray his character, seeing as Claire didn’t resemble anything from her video game counterpart in extinction.

  7. your right about the working out part hehhe, i have the game and can tell you 2 things:
    1. chris is a hardcore bad ass
    2. he’s also really muscly (nothing new for a male protagonist)

    i recon he’ll do a good job though, he was really good in prison break so he’ll probably bring awesomeness to this awkwardly led chain of movies

  8. heres how i grade the films
    Res1-3/5
    Res2-4/5
    Res3-2.5/5
    that being said i sick of mila jocavich and im happy it wil be getting rebooted. I love wentworth miller and im going to enjoy him inn the film even though he doesn look right for the part(someone like thomas jane would be great)I hope the new trilogy stars wentworth miller(asuming he does good in afterlife)
    p.s. prison break rocks

  9. Wentworth is handsome,adorable & so talented.He’ll be great as any character he represents.I’ve seen him in different roles + PB,he is amazing in all of his work.IMO it’s not necessary to look almost the same like the character on the game though Went is not far from it.
    I wish 4 him good luck,just seeing him makes me happy.
    I pray for him to get all success he deserves I adore him and want to see him 24hr 7days aweek
    I’m waiting 4 the movie from now

  10. Stalkers and teenage girls rejoice!

  11. LMAO! No kidding. stalkers are apparently everywhere.

  12. Congratulations Wentworth!!!
    He is a great actor talented and versatile.
    I wish him to get all success he deserves.

  13. Definitely gym time. But it’s a different role for him, now he gets to be a muscle bound badass.

  14. Wentworth is been very amazing!
    He is a great actor!
    I love you wentworth…

  15. That’s a real, truly good fit for Chris. Good job, Paul. Now let’s hope that script feels like RE and we’re good to go.

  16. I’m not a great fan of zombie movies but with Wentworth just ANYTHING is worth watching. I’m sure he will make the film a worldwide success!

  17. i want to see more of alice. i know alot of poeple who want tosee alice and if they dont there not gonna watch it , i think screw chris and leon they should stay in video games and the guy who plays chris redfield doesnt look nothing like chris

  18. Wentworth is a very talented actor.
    He will be perfect in any movie.

  19. I’m looking forward to c this movie.WM is a a great and talented actor.He deserves the best.
    I’m sure he’ll do Chris Redfield so well.
    I’ve never been interested in this kind of movies b4,but with Wentworth it’s totally different.I’ll enjoy watching it just because of him.I’m now going to c the previous 3 RE movies to understand the storyline

  20. the other films were nothing like the games. i will watch this next one but i think that the franchise is ruined. i really want to see them remake these films more like the first video game with a big ass tyrant that does not talk,wesker,chris redfield,hunters,soiders,snakes,sharks,plant 42, (etc). so remake this crap after part 4.

  21. Chris Redfield was very skinny before RES5. That picture is kinda misleading.

  22. How was teh second film a failure when it groseed more then it cost to make?

    Perhaps it was a failure compared to your critque but it was certainly not a box office failure nor was the thrid one whcih even i admit was a let down from what was hyed and what I had hoped it would be.

    RE2 Stats:
    Budget = 45Million
    BO Take = 51 Million (domestically); 129 Million world-wide

    Profit = 129 – 45 = 84 million
    Now how does 84 million in profit whcih excludes after market like rental & sel thru, equate to a failure?

  23. im not a big fan of zombie movies but i will watch it because of WENT MILLER!

  24. Love Resident Evil!LOVE WENTWORTH!

  25. I love Wentworth!!! COngrats! I’m looking forward to see this movie!

  26. hello
    im parvane
    i love wentworth miller
    i can not speak english
    tanks
