Resident Evil 4 Gets a New Release Date
08.20.09 by Ryan
Looks like the fourth installment of the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil: Afterlife, has been bumped from its initial release date of September 17, 2010, to three weeks earlier on August 27, 2010, just making it into the summer line-up of 2010.
Resident Evil: Afterlife will again see the return of Milla Jovovich and Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson, who also wrote the script. Afterlife should arrive on schedule, as long as Jovovich is able to make it through the production without hurting any of the cast or crew. Jovovich apparently has a habit of giving out black eyes while shooting Resident Evil movies:
I gave my fiancé Paul a black eye when he was directing me in the first Resident Evil. He was trying to plan the shot and said, "Punch straight at me and pretend I'm the camera." Of course I got too closed and punched him straight in the eye. I gave the director of photography a black eye on the set of Resident Evil 2.
Ironically, no zombies were hurt on the Resident Evil sets, though Jovovich also admitted that she can "hit the stunt men a bit too hard."
