Resident Evil Extinction details revealed
UK IGN managed to get some words from him at a recent Hollywood and Videogames conference. He explained that the first movie was before the game, the second during, and the third would be a closure after the events in the game itself.
"So the third movie, Resident Evil: Extinction is set several years in the future and it's pretty much after the Umbrella Corporation has failed to control the outbreaks of the T-Virus and the world has literally been wiped out. There's very little humanity left and a handful of human survivors are traveling around the remnants of the world in these heavily armored convoys and what they do is they go to the least populated parts of the world, because they figure that's where the least undead will be, and they travel in these heavily armored trucks and customized rolling fortresses—it's very Road Warrior--at high speed so that the undead don't get anywhere near them. So that's where the movie takes place, primarily in the deserts of Nevada and around Las Vegas. But of course, it's a Las Vegas that has kind of fallen now, because what's happened is, with no one to take care of it, the desert has come back in and half-buried Vegas. So… we built all these casinos which are sort of buried in the sand. We built… parts of Paris [the casino]. So we built a chunk of the Eiffel Tower, but half-buried in sand. It's really spectacular."
It does sound pretty spectacular, and you can see the first clip of the film over at UK IGN who have a picture of Milla Jovovich and Ali Larter in their film outfits...Jovovich has some big bad ass knives there...
You know, strangely I'm looking forward to this...and I almost want to cleanse myself for saying and thinking that, but I am.
