Michelle Rodriguez Returns to ‘Resident Evil’ for ‘Retribution’


Michelle Rodriguez is reprising her role as commando Rain Ocampo in director Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth installment in the insanely successful Sony Screen Gems franchise. Bloody Disgusting confirmed the news, but there’s no word on how Ocampo is being resurrected (she was infected and killed in the original RE film).

Rodriguez joins a cast that includes super hot Sienna Guillory as Jill Valentine, Colin Salmon as James ‘One’ Shade, Boris Kodjoe as Luther West, Shawn Roberts as Albert Wesker, and—of course—Milla Jovovich as resident ass-kicker Alice.

Resident Evil: Retribution is set to shoot in Japan, Russia, and Toronto. It arrives in theaters on Sept. 14, 2012.

  1. If Colin Salmon as “One” (who was sliced into cold cuts by lasers in the first film) is also coming back, Michelle is probably in flashback sequences showing earlier involvement with Umbrella Corp, if not the actual day of the Hive operation, perhaps from the commando squad’s PoV!
