In what could be the last installment in the franchise with actress Milla Jovovich in the lead, filming on “Resident Evil: Afterlife” began this week in Toronto.
The film will be the first in the series to be filmed in 3-D, according to reports.
“The Resident Evil franchise has successfully entertained audiences around the globe and we are pleased to bring yet another installment to fans with the same creative team, but this time in 3-D,” Screen Gems’ President Clint Culpepper said.
The film sees the return of Jovovich as well as actress Ali Larter. In addition, “Prison Break”‘s Wentworth Miller is joining the cast.
“Resident Evil: Afterlife” is expected to hit U.S. theatres August 27, 2010.
