‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ Has Been Delayed By A Baby

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter was supposed to begin production before the end of the year, but a new update from the film’s star has made it known that no footage will be filmed in 2014.

Writing to fans on what was expected to be the first day of production, or at the very least pre-production, Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich revealed to franchise fans that she recently learned she is pregnant with her second child. After discussing the new development with her husband, RE franchise mastermind Paul W.S. Anderson, the couple decided putting the final chapter of their long-running zombie killing series on hold was best for everyone involved. You can read Milla’s original letter, in full, below:

Happy Monday everyone! This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But… My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!!

So after a lot of discussion, we thought it would be in everyone’s best interest to wait till the baby is born before we set out to try and tackle an RE movie. Between the stunt work and what will become my ever-expanding belly, we didn’t think pregnancy and zombie killing are the best combo! Lol! I imagine the only thing I’ll be killing in the near future is an endless supply of cupcakes. Yikes…

In all seriousness though, we want to make the best movie possible and that would be extremely difficult, to say the least, in my present condition.

I would like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has been working so hard on the movie in South Africa already and we are so looking forward to working with you all next summer. And when we arrive, it will hopefully be with the newest member of our little family! YAY!

Thanks so much for understanding! All the best! -m

Is it unclear when production will resume on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, but it seems safe to assume discussion of this film will be relatively quiet for the next nine months. We’ll bring you more information as this story continues to develop.
