New RESIDENT EVIL Film Is Delayed Cause Director Knocked Up Star

Milla Jovovich ("Dazed and Confused"), the star of the Resident Evil video game-to-film franchise, has released a statement explaining that her recent pregnancy will delay production on the next film in the series, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

38-year-old actress, Milla Jovovich, announced today that she is expecting her second child. It is a bit scandalous as the father-to-be is Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson. He also happens to be Milla's husband. They've been married since 2009 and have a daughter together. Milla broke the news via her Facebook page. Congrats on the pregnancy Milla and Paul. Though, fans of the Resident Evil franchise will be a bit miffed as the pregnancy will delay filming on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, which is said to be the last in the franchise.

Happy Monday everyone! This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.  But… My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!!

So after a lot of discussion, we thought it would be in everyone's best interest to wait till the baby is born before we set out to try and tackle an RE movie. Between the stunt work and what will become my ever-expanding belly, we didn't think pregnancy and zombie killing are the best combo! Lol! I imagine the only thing I'll be killing in the near future is an endless supply of cupcakes. Yikes…

In all seriousness though, we want to make the best movie possible and that would be extremely difficult, to say the least, in my present condition.

I would like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has been working so hard on the movie in South Africa already and we are so looking forward to working with you all next summer. And when we arrive, it will hopefully be with the newest member of our little family! YAY!

Thanks so much for understanding! All the best! - Milla Jovovich
