First Look at Leon S. Kennedy on the set of Resident Evil: Retribution

Via her official Twitter account and through posts in Shock Til You Drop and Comic Book Resources, Milla Jovovich has updated fans with a video what's going on in the set of her next Resident Evil movie, Resident Evil: Retribution. Once again directed by her hubby director Paul W.S. Anderson, the film picks up where the last one left off, with Milla's character Alice and her friends trying to finish off the Umbrella Corporation and its biological experiments once and for all, gaining new friends and allies who are familiar faces to those who've played the games (like yours truly). In fact, Shock Til You Drop has the video from Ms. Jovovich up which brings a close look at Retribution from Behind The Scenes, giving us our first look at Boris Kodjoe returning as Luther from Afterlife and the movie version of one Leon S. Kennedy, star of Resident Evil 2 and RE 4 who is going to be played by Johann Urb (also known as Sasha from Rolan Emmerich's 2012).

Resident Evil Retribution: Behind The Scenes and first look at Leon S. Kennedy

According to the Wikipedia profile of Retribution, Leon from Retribution is described as "the leader of the Resistance, who teams with Alice as she battles the Umbrella Corporation and the swarm of undead.". A far cry and distant version from the Leon I know and idolize from Capcom's Biohazard/ Resident Evil games, and the only similarities I see are the brown jacket and the name (which don't look like Leon's to begin with). Like I said of the past Anderson RE movies and as a big fan of the gaming franchise alone, this is totally different and I'm taking this as a separate entity unrelated to the source material. Clearly this isn't the Leon we all know from Resident Evil 4, so all I'm hoping is it delivers some worthy popcorn action at least. For more info, visit the source post at Milla's Twitter or the posts at Shock Til You Drop and CBM.

Resident Evil: Retribution delivers more zombie apocalypse action on September 12, 2012.
