RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER Delayed Due to Milla Jovovich's Pregnancy
Resident Evil: The final Chapter is the last film that will be made in the horror franchise... until it's rebooted again. The movie was supposed to go into production soon, but has been delayed. Milla Jovovich revealed on Facebook that she's pregnant, and instead of shooting the movie, she's going to wait until after she has the baby, which makes complete sense. Here's the letter she sent out:
Happy Monday everyone! This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But… My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!!
So after a lot of discussion, we thought it would be in everyone's best interest to wait till the baby is born before we set out to try and tackle an RE movie. Between the stunt work and what will become my ever-expanding belly, we didn't think pregnancy and zombie killing are the best combo! Lol! I imagine the only thing I'll be killing in the near future is an endless supply of cupcakes. Yikes…
In all seriousness though, we want to make the best movie possible and that would be extremely difficult, to say the least, in my present condition.
I would like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has been working so hard on the movie in South Africa already and we are so looking forward to working with you all next summer. And when we arrive, it will hopefully be with the newest member of our little family! YAY!
Thanks so much for understanding! All the best! -m
Jovovich's husband, Paul W.S. Anderson (writer-director of the Resident Evil franchise), was reportedly working on the script for the film back in June, but pre-production obviously got a lot further than we thought. Taking in account how bad the last few movies have been in this franchise, I wouldn't mind waiting forever for another Resident Evil.
