Resident Evil Synopsis Reveals ... Zombies! Who Saw That Coming?
Posted 10.11.09 by Ryan
Sony Screen Gems has released the official synopsis for Resident Evil: Afterlife. There won't be too many surprises for those who saw how Resident Evil: Extinction ended — with Alice (Milla Jovovich) vowing revenge on the Umbrella Corporation and new cast addition Boris Kodjoe's reveal of a prison in a "burning" L.A.
In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead leads them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.
Extinction's Ali Larter and Spencer Locke return with Jovovich for Afterlife alongside Shawn Roberts, Kodjoe and Wentworth Miller. Norman Yeung and Kacey Barnfield are also joining the cast, both in unspecified roles. Paul W.S. Anderson will return to direct from his own script.
Resident Evil: Afterlife opens on August 27, 2010 in 3-D.
