Ali Larter to Headline Resident Evil 4?

Well if this turns out to be true, it’ll certainly be pretty good news. I have nothing against Milla Jovovich, except for the fact that she has a one-note personality in just about every movie she’s been in, especially when given a sword or gun or a baton to swing around. That’s not her fault, it’s just who she is. The girl is limited in range, what can you say. But Ali Larter? If you’ve seen her on Heroes, you know she can stretch those good looks into actual acting skills, and I wouldn’t mind it one bit if the powers that be decide to kill off Alice (Jovovich’s character in the “Resident Evil” movies) and hand the franchise over to Larter, who plays Claire Redfield in the upcoming “Resident Evil: Extinction” movie.

The rumors of Larter taking over for Jovovich originated from here:

Actress Ali Larter says she has “heard whispers” of a fourth “Resident Evil” film. The next chapter may spin off from the Alice arc and instead focus on Claire Redfield. “We’ll see come Monday, right?” Larter said at today’s press day in Las Vegas referring, of course, to the box office results for Resident Evil: Extinction which opens tonight at midnight.

Again, I have nothing against Jovovich, but she just never brought all that much to the party, as it were. The ass kicking chick thing that she does is getting stale.

“Resident Evil: Extinction” opens today.

      I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but the RE movies are very different from the games. I would still like to see Re4 be like the video game. Leon S. Kennedy… 6 years have past since the horror of Raccoon City… the president’s daughter has gone missing… It’s up to one person…

      Anywho, I don’t really like the movies because of their plots being too far from the games.

      I mean seriously guys, “Jill is dismissed from Stars because her Partner Leon S. Kennedy died”? That’s wrong in many ways. Leon was NEVER her partner. I doubt they’ve ever met. Chris Redfield is her partner. Plus, Leon never died. It shows up 6 years after that, and at the end of his game, he’s still alive.

        that is very true…jill is chris`partner not leon!! besides chris redfield is still alive in the fifth game and yet he dies in the third(i think.) hte movies are good but they are too far off the games. i think they should make re4 more like the game. ohh and i think milla is the perfect alice!!! she rocks!!

    • vagina

      i agree with you, alice and milla are the best actresses ever! cant wait for the fourth one

      • mynameisalice

    • Star

      i want Milla to come out in the Resident Evil 4 the movie won’t be any good without her. She’s the only reason why i watch those movies so you better have her come out. and for the other chick she can come out to but following Milla’s leads. Milla is the bomb and she’s fucking hott. so is Ali but Milla is better so yeah please LEAVE MILLA JOVOVICH SHE’S AWESOME.

    They should keep the Alice caracter, because that’s what the RE movies is about, but it would be cool if
    Jill Valentine could be reassigned, why was’nt she in the RE3? what happend to her? and with the last coment from Alice i RE3 there has to be a lot of Alice’s in RE4.

    RESIDENT EVIL 4 IS REQUIRED!
