Director Paul Wes Anderson is back with Resident Evil: Afterlife and says that being married to lead actress Milla Jovovich and having their kids on the set made the shooting experience all the more pleasurable.
The fourth movie in the hit franchise sees Alice the protagonist played by Milla,coming face to face with her arch-nemesis,Albert Wesker,for the first time in the sci-fi horror series.
Anderson said,we’re both similar in that we love filmmaking and we love the process. It’s a pleasure and privilege to be able to do what we do for a living. So you know,our personal life now and our work life are very intertwined anyway. We talk about movies and we talk about Resident Evil in our spare time.
Based on video game series Resident Evil,filming the movie with their 3-year-old baby made the experience for the couple all the memorable.
He added,this is the first movie we have made with the baby as well. So for me it’s just a wonderful experience to be able to work with my whole family. Resident Evil,it’s very much like a family business now. My producing partner has been with me for almost 20 years now and they are lovely movies to make.
Bitten by the 3-D bug which is presently creating ripples in the world of showbiz after the success of Avatar,the helmer found making the movie using the technology a bit more difficult than its prequels.
I mean,they’re very difficult films to make and especially the 3D is technically very challenging but still it’s the best job in the world,he said.
Anderson,45,also showered praises on 34-year-old Milla for doing all the stunts on her own and refusing to use a body double. He said,all of them. If I ever tell her she can’t do anything,I never hear the end of it. She complains,and complains,why cant I? I am like,Baby,this is dangerous. There is a reason why we pay stunt people to do this stuff. She absolutely wants to do everything a hundred percent and she does. I would say,99.9 per cent of the stunts you see,it is her,” he said.
Apart from Milla,the movie also stars Ali Larter,Wentworth Miller,Spencer Locke,Shawn Roberts and Boris Kodjoe in important roles.
