That’s right ladies and gentlemen. The final installments of Underworld & Resident Evil hit theaters in late 2016 and early 2017. Underworld: Blood Wars is set to release on October 14th, 2016. The film is currently in post-production. No trailer or plot has been released yet.
The film is directed by Anna Foerster (Independence Day, Pitch Black, The Day After Tomorrow) and written by Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter, Priest), Kevin Grevioux, Danny McBride, and Len Wiseman (Underworld, Underworld: Evolution). Kate Beckinsale will reprise her role as Selene, along with Theo James who will be back on screen as David and Charles Dance who plays Thomas. As of right now there is no mention of Scott Speedman’s (Michael) return to the saga. However, there is hope. In Underworld Awakening (2012) we left of with Selene going to find Michael but only finding an empty cryogenic cell with Eve sharing his vision and learning he is on the roof. Selene, Eve, and David run to the roof only to find Michael is gone. Selene narrates, concluding that she will find Michael and take back the world from the humans and lycans, so the vampires can rebuild themselves as the humans declared war. Also when looking at the cast list on IMDB, we can see Trent Garrett is playing the hybrid version of Michael. Keep your fingers crossed that we will see Speedman reprise this role!
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is set to release on January 27th, 2017. This is film is also currently in post-production. No trailer has been released but we do have a plot summary. According to IMDB, a summary from Screen Gems/ Constantin states:
“Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between regaining her superhuman abilities at Wesker’s hand and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.”
The film is directed and written by Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Retribution). Milla Jovovich will star once again, as Alice, along with Ali Larter who plays Claire Redfield.
