The Resident Evil franchise proves to be a hit amongst cinephiles and fans, as the latest installment, Resident Evil: Retribution is currently in production. In a twist that'll make you do a double take, it's reported that actress Michelle Rodriguez, has signed on to reprise her role as Rain Ocampo from the 2002 original film. 

In addition to Ocampo's return, production has already announced the returns of Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory), One (Colin Salmon), Luther West (Boris Kodjoe), and Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts). While it's not totally clear how Michelle's hottie-turned-zombie character will fit into the story line of Retribution, we know it'll take some serious creative maneuvering to bring her back from the dead.

The new movie will be set in Tokyo, Japan and Paul W.S. Anderson is directing Resident Evil: Retribution from his own screenplay. The zombification of a generation returns to attack audiences again on September 14, 2012.
