Korean actor Lee Joon Gi has been confirmed to play a part in the last film of the Resident Evil franchise. It will be a supporting role, but no other details have been released. Being that the Resident Evil series is of the sci-fi action genre, it is safe to assume Lee Joon Gi will likely be utilizing some of his skills in that area. The main actress of the movie, Milla Jovovich, posted a picture of her and Lee Joon Gi on Instragram, and she comments on his Tae Kwon Do expertise.
I’m not a fan of the Resident Evil series, but I personally think this is great news for Lee Joon Gi. Although the part will likely be small, it’s a positive thing for a non-American born Korean actor to even be in a Hollywood film. We all know that no matter what type or size of a part he has, he will give his all for the role.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is about humans trying to survive a zombie apocalypse after the evil Umbrella Corporation releases a virus that turns people into zombies. It is scheduled to be released in January 2017.
