- NO RETRIBUTION FOR THE REDFIELDS
Resident Evil film star Milla Jovovich was very busy on Twitter on Saturday, as the star revealed lots of information on Resident Evil: Retribution 3D, including the news that some long-desired fan favorite characters from the game franchise have finally made it into the film series.

Jovovich's SPOILERISH tweets revealed that the fifth RE film will not include previously introduced characters Claire and Chris Redfield or K-Mart as they have now been captured by the Umbrella Corp. so it's up to Alice, Ada Wong, Leon S. Kennedy and Barry Burton to go rescue them. None of these new roles have been cast yet, but Jovovich said that Jensen Ackles, who had been rumored to play Leon in the fourth film, would be unavailable due to his TV commitments.
Also, Shawn Roberts will reprise his role as the evil Albert Wesker, who evidently was tougher to kill than the last film would have you believe. Milla added that the Las Plagas parasite would also be part of the storyline.
Jovovich also hyped up the action scenes set to be shot for the film, including a major one in Moscow's Red Square and another involving a Rolls-Royce getting shot up. She also said she has a big fight scene with Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory).
In related news, actor Boris Kodjoe confirmed that he will be back as former pro-athlete Luther West, who was introduced in last year's Resident Evil: Afterlife as a potential love interest for Milla's Alice. RE5 begins filming October 16.
