Even though his character, James “One” Shade, was killed off in the original 2002 film Resident Evil, actor Colin Salmon is said to be reprising the role in the upcoming Screen Gems-produced sequel, Resident Evil: Retribution.
According to shocktillyoudrop.com, Salmon announced via Twitter that he would be joining stars Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Resident Evil, Ultraviolet) and Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Eragon) in the re-launching of the horror franchise.
“Confirmed I will be shooting new Resident Evil movie. Paul Anderson has written an amazing script.” That’s about all we have to go on right now, but you can begin speculating as to how he returns.”
Writer Paul Anderson is also directing Resident Evil: Retribution, which began production this month, and is looking at a September 2012 release.
