Resident Evil 5 and George Clooney's Ides of March Get Release Dates
Posted 03.05.11 by Ryan
Right after Resident Evil: Afterlife enjoyed a successful opening weekend when it became the first Resident Evil movie to go No. 1 worldwide, franchise star Milla Jovovich confirmed that another Resident Evil sequel was a "definite." Almost six months later, Resident Evil 5 has a release date.
ComingSoon reports that Sony Screen Gems has scheduled Resident Evil 5 for a September 14, 2012, release date. Whether Jovovich's husband, Paul W.S. Anderson will be involved is unknown, though considering he has produced and penned the screenplay for all four Resident Evil movies and directed both Afterlife and the 2002 original, it's hard to think that Anderson won't be involved. It's also probably safe to assume that Resident Evil 5 will arrive in 3-D, considering the boost it gave Afterlife.
Arriving a month after Resident Evil 5 is George Clooney's political thriller The Ides of March, based on Beau Willimon's play Farragut North. Clooney is directing the movie and stars opposite Ryan Gosling, who plays an idealistic staffer who learns a lesson about dirty politics as he works for a new political candidate (Clooney) on the campaign trail. Willimon loosely based his play on the 2004 Democratic primary campaign of Howard Dean.
THR reports that Sony will open The Ides of March on
October 14, 2012. Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood co-star.
