Resident Evil: Extinction the last in the movie series?
by IGN Staff
December 15, 2006 - While rumors of a fourth installment in the videogame-based series persist, a new official synopsis released today by Sony matter-of-factly states that the third movie in the franchise, Resident Evil: Extinction, will be the last.
The studio refers to the flick as "the third and final installment" of Resident Evil, and goes on to give a breakdown of Extinction's action:
Alice (Milla Jovovich), now in hiding in the Nevada desert, once again joins forces with Carlos Olivera (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps), along with new survivors Claire (Ali Larter), K-Mart (Spencer Locke) and Nurse Betty (Ashanti) to try to eliminate the deadly virus that threatens to make every human being undead... and to seek justice. Since being captured by the Umbrella Corporation, Alice has been subjected to biogenic experimentation and becomes genetically altered, with super-human strengths, senses and dexterity. These skills, and more, will be needed if anyone is to remain alive.
The flick also stars Iain Glen, Chris Egan and Jason O'Mara. Russell Mulcahy directed from a script written by franchise producer Paul W.S. Anderson.
Resident Evil: Extinction hits theaters on September 21, 2007.
