Constantin Film and Screen Gems have cast up the fifth installment of the Resident Evil franchise. The film brings back Milla Jovovich and is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, who wrote the script and produces with Jeremy Bolt, Robert Kulzer, Don Carmody and Samuel Hadida.

Michelle Rodriguez, Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe, Shawn Roberts, Sienna Guillory, Oded Fehr and Kevin Durand will star in the film. Urb, who was a regular on ABC’s Eastwick and starred in 2012, plays the leader of the Resistance, who teams with Jovovich’s Alice character as she battles the Umbrella Corporation and the swarm of undead.
