What May Have Caused Milla Jovovich To Exit The “Resident Evil” Franchise?

Exit Of Milla Jovovich From The _Resident Evil_ Series

Five additional movies with a total runtime of 14 years included her as the lead.

One of the first hugely popular video game crossovers was the 2002 release of the movie “Resident Evil,” which was based on the Japanese video game franchise of the same name created by Capcom.

For a total of 14 years, Milla Jovovich played the lead in five other films. However, all roles, no matter how great or small, eventually came to an end, but hers was for a very terrible cause.
Two catastrophic incidents involving her stunt double and a South African crew member caused the actress to leave the franchise, one of which resulted in death.

First, while riding a motorbike during the sixth and last Resident Evil filming in South Africa, the actress’ stunt duplicate, Olivia Jackson, collided with a camera crane.

Several injuries, including a brain hemorrhage, a cut artery, a crushed and degloved face, several shattered bones, frayed nerves, and an amputated thumb, put her in a coma after this major tragedy, according to Deadline.

In addition, the British stunt actress lost an arm while comatose for two weeks, making her survival a miracle, as described by Jovovich in a Facebook post.
After the event in which a Humvee smashed him against a wall, the South African crew, regrettably, did not survive. Two months had passed after the Jackson tragedy when this happened.
What’s worse is that none of the businesses engaged in the movie’s production gave the man’s family a sympathy message, which led to accusations being leveled against his local company, All Access Crews.
After her catastrophic accident, Jackson, for her part, also filed a lawsuit against the film’s creators, claiming that the stunt was poorly conceived and that her injuries prohibited her from returning to her previous job.

According to a story published by The Hollywood Reporter, she prevailed in her legal battle in a South African court, which determined that director Paul W.S. Anderson offered hazardous instructions that altered the original stunt.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, which was always meant to be the final installment, was made possible despite such mishaps and Jovovich’s departure from the franchise.

But that didn’t happen until Netflix just unveiled two teaser trailers for a new Resident Evil TV series that will debut this summer and features Billie and Jade, two brand-new characters. Jovovich, however, has decided not to play Alice in another movie. This story was first reported on by Showbiz Cheat Sheet.

Watching The Fifth Element. Milla Jovovich does not get the love she rightfully deserves sometimes as an actor. She's amazing as Leeloo and her other roles are just as great. Hell she lead the Resident Evil Franchise to over $1 Billion at the Box Office. She deserves it all.
