Last year Milla Jovovich announced that she and her husband, director Paul W.S. Anderson, had to put the shooting of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter on hold because they were having another kid. We now have an update from the actress on her Facebook page that she is getting ready to reprise her role of Alice and jump back into action. She also confirms that shooting will begin in August.
