Sprawling 13 years of cinema and countless game titles, the lucrative zombie franchise is finally coming to a cinematic close. Currently in filming, [Resident Evil 6: The Final Chapter](tag:671270) is exactly what the name suggests -- the final chapter.
While perhaps not the final curtain for Resident Evil on the big screen as a whole -- you know how Hollywood loves a reboot these days -- it is a final farewell to our familiar heroine, Milla Jovovich's Alice.
The zombie butt kicking actress took to Instagram to show off a brand new look for the character, and one that we've yet to see. Taking a painstaking four hours in the makeup chair, The Final Chapter will be the first time we encounter 'Old Alice.'
Adding to the intrigue, Jovovich's caption reveals that this look is not merely for the end of the film, suggesting that Resident Evil: The Final Chapter may be told in a series of flashbacks...
For those worrying that we won't be seeing our badass heroine in her usual attire, fear not! Milla Jovovich also took time to upload this adorable picture alongside her daughter Dashiel, showing Alice sporting her familiar battle weary look.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is scheduled to hit theaters January 27, 2017.
Check out the official synopsis for the next installment of Resident Evil, written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, below:
The film will pick up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution. Humanity stands on its last legs as Alice, Jill Valentine, Leon Kennedy, Ada Wong, and Alice's "adopted daughter" Becky are forced into an alliance with former Umbrella Corporation leader Albert Wesker. As the survivor of what was meant to be humanity's final stand against the undead hordes, Alice returns to where the nightmare began: Raccoon City, where the Red Queen—which now controls the remnants of Umbrella—is gathering its forces for a final strike against the remaining survivors of the T-Virus apocalypse. Although Alice has her superhuman abilities back, the Red Queen's plans will ensure that this fight is the most difficult fight of her life.
