Wentworth Miller begins work on 'Resident Evil: Afterlife'

wentworthmiller_prisonbreak_290.jpgWentworth Miller, you just spent years breaking out of prison and then made an appearance on the right side of the law. Where are you going?

Toronto, apparently, to fight zombies. Miller is trading in his television bona fides to join the cast of "Resident Evil: Afterlife," fourth in the zombie Apocalypse series based on the popular video games. The actor had the lead role in the television series "Prison Break" followed by a multi-episode arc on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

"Afterlife," the follow-up to 2007's "Resident Evil: Extinction," reunites Milla Jovovich as butt-kicking clone Alice and Ali Larter as human survivor Claire Redfield. Miller will take the role of Claire's brother Chris, a prominent character in the games.

We're interested to see how the principals will come together: Last we saw, Larter's character was leading survivors to a supposed zombie-free zone in Alaska, while Jovovich's Alice was leading a clone army against the evil Umbrella Corporation.

"Afterlife" is scheduled to reach U.S. theaters sometime in the fall of 2010.
