Casting for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (which we have been assured is indeed the final chapter…for now) is complete, with Orange Is the New Black breakout star Ruby Rose joining the lineup along with returning cast members Iain Glen and Shawn Roberts. In addition, Screen Gems has revealed the official plot for the final installment, which unsurprisingly sees Milla Jovovich’s Alice fighting the evil Umbrella Corporation again.
As Resident Evil: The Final Chapter prepares to begin shooting later this year, we’re left to wonder whether the film’s subtitle is honest. Is this really the last chapter of one of the longest-running horror franchises? According to one of the stars of the film, it most definitely is.
At some point, the Resident Evil movies stopped being schlocky B-movies that existed solely to allow Paul W.S. Anderson to shoot Milla Jovovich in slow-motion and became, well, whatever they are now. Because they’re certainly something, although we certainly cannot tell you what kind of something they are. We’ve learned to just go with whatever these movies throw at us, so the news that Ali Larter is returning to the series for its supposed final chapter isn’t surprising or unexpected. This series could literally do anything and we wouldn’t even blink. Forget it Jake, it’s Resident Evil.
Incredulous though we remain that NBC’s Heroes Reborn could happen at all, at least some of the show’s past stars have firmly chosen to move on from such a dark time in history. We’ve heard of a bevy of returning Heroes castmates, but who from the original group has officially opted not to be Reborn?
NBC's proposed 'Heroes' reboot 'Heroes Reborn' has been something of a mystery since its original 2014 Olympic announcement, thus far returning only original series star Jack Coleman to the cast. Prior series lead Milo Ventimiglia previously shot down questions of returning to the role of Peter Petrelli, and it now seems original series star Ali Larter has followed suit.
While we all remember what happened the last time Sean Bean headed up a 10-episode series on cable, something tells us TNT's 'Legends' has a bit more stability in mind. The cable network has officially greenlit for 2014 the new spy thriller series based on the Robert Littell spy novel of the same name, starring Bean, Ali Larter and 'True Blood's Tina Majorino, but will 'Legends' prove the next big hit for TNT? Preview the new spy thriller series inside!
Of all the various TV pilots in development, one show we're certainly keeping our eye on comes from 'Homeland' producer Howard Gordon as that of TNT's upcoming sci-fi pilot 'Legends.' The pilot has already achieved notoriety for casting Brendan Fraser in the lead role, only to replace him with 'Game of Thrones' star Sean Bean, and now former 'Heroes' star Ali Larter has officially joined the pilot in the female lead.
