Milla Jovovich says there will be a fifth 'Resident Evil' movie




Resident Evil: Afterlife (in 3D, no less) lived up to its title, scoring enough cash at the box office that star Milla Jovovich boasts they're already planning a fifth installment. As a zombie fan and devotee of the video game series, The Juice* is truly sorry to hear that.

"This new Resident Evil is the first one to ever open at No. 1 worldwide. It’s the biggest movie in the franchise," she told New York magazine's Vulture blog. Afterlife made $27.7 million over the weekend, better than the $23 million Resident Evil: Apocalypse opened with in 2007. "So we’re definitely going to make another one." She noted that director Paul W.S. Anderson already has ideas for a new one, although it probably doesn't hurt that she's married to the guy and they have a baby together.

"We’ve been talking to a lot of fans on Twitter and stuff, so it’s probably going to be one of the first movies where we really talk to fans to see what they want, and what characters they want to see," Milla said. "It's going to be a more interactive process." They can probably start by making sure the next one is the only new release in a weekend and is in 3D to drive up ticket costs, like Afterlife did. That seems like basic logic.
