When I spoke to Michelle Rodriguez for Battle: Los Angeles, the starlet let it be known that she would do anything director Paul W.S. Anderson asked of her to return to the Resident Evil franchise. Her wishes must have been heard, because word is she’s cast in Resident Evil: Retribution.
Rodriguez will be returning to the franchise in the role she originated, Rain. Milla Jovovich, of course, will be back with her director husband in the film series they started in 2002. Resident Evil: Retribution will be the fifth film in the series and is proving to be an original film reunion of sorts as casting news released recently has Colin Salmon returning as the character One.
