Milla Jovovich’s fans have to be strong. The new “Resident Evil” cracker was shot without the previous leading actress in the series
Berlin – Almost 20 years ago a groundbreaking work was released: “Resident Evil”, which was partly shot in Germany and co-produced by Bernd Eichinger. In it the women were the heroines – especially Milla Jovovich in the lead role.
Since then, her name has been closely associated with the video game fantasy film series. The actress not only slipped into the role of the brave heroine who fought against the evil Umbrella Corporation with a lot of verve in the debut of 2002. She was also present in all previous further stories.
But now, in “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City”, the seventh part of the video game adaptation, Jovovich is not there.
