Production has been underway on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter for about a month now, but we're only just getting to see the first peek at some of the franchise's stars on set. Milla Jovovich (Alice) has shared an image of herself and co-star Ali Larter (Claire Redfield) during filming in Cape Town, South Africa. Alice is sporting some fresh wounds, while Claire looks just, um, fresh.
In addition, the official synopsis for writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson's final entry in the series has also been revealed.
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.
Due in theaters on January 27, 2017, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter also stars Iain Glen (Dr. Alexander Isaacs), Shawn Roberts (Albert Wesker), Ruby Rose (Abigail), Eoin Macken (Doc), William Levy (Christian), Fraser James (Michael), and Rola (Cobalt).
