Milla Jovovich describes fun of filming “Resident Evil: Afterlife”
SAN DIEGO — “Resident Evil: Afterlife” is the fourth zombie-fighting film based on the hit video game. Milla Jovovich returns as Alice, who aims to find survivors in this post-apocalyptic world and lead them to safety. She continues her battle with the Umbrella Corp., the entity responsible for the undead roaming the Earth.
While most video-game based movies haven’t been successful, “Resident Evil” has been the exception. At last month’s Comic-Con International, Jovovich said she credits that to the people working on the films.
“We’ve been so lucky to have such incredible cast and crew, and all the actors that have been involved are such wonderful actors, period,” she said at a panel promoting “Resident Evil: Afterlife.” “But they’re also the kind of people that aren’t going to get all snooty, like, ‘Oh, this is just an action film’ and ‘Oh, I don’t like making this stupid action … .’”
The first and fourth “Resident Evil” films were directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. Jovovich and Anderson, who met on the first “Resident Evil” film, now are married. Jovovich said having fun on set has been part of the success of the “Resident Evil” films.
“I’ve done so many different types of movies in my life, and we all go into this loving it. It’s like this grueling roller-coaster ride. It’s like grueling Disneyland. We have so much fun doing it. It’s like every day on set is this crazy adventure, shooting, explosions, like flying, it’s wild.”
Being able to return to the Alice character in film after film has been an advantage, Jovovich said.
“Alice is the kind of character that keeps evolving,” she said. “For me, I think every actor’s dream is at the end of the movie, you always wish you could start all over again, because now you finally got the character. And here, I get to come back all these times, over and over and tweak things and change things and add things.”
