Resident Evil: Afterlife no news

ResidentEvilExtinction.jpgThe interflab is wild with the news on Resident Evil: Afterlife being officially announced. The fourth film with Paul W.S. Anderson directing, Milla Jovovich starring, Ali Larter as Claire, Wentworth Miller as Chris Redfield and Boris Kodjoe, and the fact that it's in 3D.

Ermmm, we knew all that already. The new news is that Shawn Roberts and Kim Coates have joined the cast, if that really does excite you in anyway, thought not.

We heard back in July that Resident Evil: Afterlife was going to be in 3D, and the word back then was they were going to do it a bit better than the average 3D film, looking to get the same camera system as used on James Cameron's Avatar.

The news of the casting came last month, although Shawn Roberts and Kim Coates are new additions, the rest of the cast list was something we already knew.

I picked the story from JoBlo and the news wrapped up altogether is rather positive, although as always with 3D, I get concerned that they are going for the gimmick, and with a zombie film there's plenty to show running and grabbing for the camera.

I don't know how to call this one. Some of the franchise has provided solid fun and some hasn't, with the cast announced and the two strong leading ladies, it might be good. However we're throwing in the 3D aspect and the announcement of Paul W.S. Anderson returning to direct and if you look at the performance of both you'd be inclined to think of them as negatives.
