Milla Jovovich: L’Oreal spokesmodel, sometime singer-songwriter, and most recently, scantily clad zombie killer. The beauteous butt-kicker of Resident Evil — the gory videogame-turned-movie (right) — has been busy contemplating a return to the recording studio and mulling over various movie deals. She did, however, find time to talk to Entertainment Weekly and offer her, uh, unique views on why she’d like to run around with a butcher knife and what film actress she’d like to tussle with.
I’ve had my eye for a while on the videogame Alice, based on Alice in Wonderland [and spookily re-imagined by game creator extraordinaire American McGee]. I’d be perfect to play Alice out of the psycho ward going back with a butcher knife and saving Wonderland. I also like playing Grand Theft Auto and feeling tough for a couple hours. But I don’t think I’d ever be in a GTA movie. I like the fact that in Resident Evil you’re killing zombies and not real people. It’s fantasy, it’s escape. That’s what I love about Alice. She kills cards, she kills weird creatures. But again, she’s not killing people. And I definitely wouldn’t want to be on screen just slaughtering people like that. I’m not Rambo and I don’t want to be. That’s passe, anyway.
I’m actually meeting with [Scream director] Wes Craven’s people to talk about what they want to do because they have the rights to Alice.
— They optioned Alice a while ago. How far along is the production?
They don’t have anything. I literally reminded them that they had the rights. Because I wanted to know who had them, my manager found out. She called them and said I was interested. They said, ”Honestly, we don’t even have a script — we don’t have anything because Wes is working on another film.”
Blade Runner. It would be great if you were human to start with and, say, get your arm blown off. You could find a cyborg arm, which would also make you more powerful. Maybe the object would be to be completely robotic by the end so you could kill things without losing your life. Ice Age should be a deadly videogame. I want to see those little animals die.
– With whom would you most like to play a two-player videogame?
Angelina Jolie. Because we’ve both played videogame characters, we’re both really tough and gorgeous, and it would be great to watch us duke it out. Plus she’s one of the only girls in Hollywood that might have fun playing videogames.
