More Resident Evil 3 & 4 Casting NewsGoon
It looks like Resident Evil: Extinction still needed a couple of spots to fill. According to Moviehole, Chris Durand is going to be one of the films foremost villians. Since not much has been revealed about the story I'm not sure what character that could be. But whatever the role is I'm sure Durand could handle from his previous experience playing Michael Myers in Halloween: H20.
Moviehole has also learned that Jensen Ackles has signed up for Resident Evil 4 already. Yea thats some early casting being done but my guess is that with RE: Extinction getting closer to wrap they want to be able to go right into production on the fourth. Apparently Ackles will be playing Leon Kennedy, one of my favorite characters from the series.
Right now of course this is all unconfirmed news but so far its looking good. Right now Resident Evil: Extinction is slated to open in theatres on September 7, 2007. So keep it here for more casting news on Resident Evil 4.
