Last week, we reported that Paul W.S. Anderson was going to direct Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth installment in the franchise, and that he planned to use video game characters Barry Burton and Leon S. Kennedy. Add Ada Wong to that list as well.
According to STYD, Wong, the Chinese secret agent who appeared in the video games Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 4, will be joining Alice (Milla Jovovich) in the sequel. In what capacity Wong will be used is unknown.
Speaking of Jovovich, the actress continues to use her Twitter to update fans on the movie, including talk of a big action scene for the movie.
@Paul_APS YES! WE ARE DOING A HUGE ACTION SEQUENCE IN RED SQUARE!!!!
Shooting that scene will likely be on a soundstage, as the sequel will be shot in Toronto and Tokyo, thought whether they plan to head to Moscow too should be revealed soon since, according to Jovovich, the movie will start shooting next month.
@EduardaSheep we start principal photography on RE:RETRIBUTION sometime towards the end of sept.
More will be revealed next month no doubt!
