Mila Jovovich would love to play “Alice” again.
Mila Jovovich shared in an interview with Comicbook that she would love to play the role again. She said;
“Resident Evil is such a huge part of my life, on so many different levels. I was such a big fan of the game. That’s what made me want to be in the movie, to begin with. So, I would always love to go back to the Resident Evil universe. I think it’s such a fun place to be in, and it’s such a great reality. And, listen, I spent half of my career in that world. I would love to be a part of it again. I know whoever is doing it is going to have an amazing time on it because it’s a really fun world to be a part of.”
Paul W.S Anderson showed no interest in returning for another movie or project. The director is not interested in the resident evil universe anymore. There is no news if Mila Jovovich would appear in the series. But, as the live-action series is produced by Constantin Films, there is a possibility that the actress might appear in the series in the future.
