Johann Urb to play Leon Kennedy in RE: Retribution

Thursday, 29th September 2011 16:07 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Mila Jovovich has said via Twitter that Johann Urb is to play Leon Kennedy in Resident Evil: Retribution.

Jovovich even tweeted a couple of short video clips of the first read through of the script by the cast, which you can watch here, which shows Johann.

Last week it was confirmed that Michelle Rodriguez would once again star as Rain Ocampo in the film, but since her character is dead, it will only be through the magic of flashbacks.

RE: Retribution, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, is currently in pre-production and is slated for release in September 2012.

Thanks, Mike.

    He looks… nothing like Leon Kennedy.

    Then again, they got a 30 something to play Claire Redfield, so expecting some sort of accurate resemblance is probably expecting too much from this franchise.

    Once again RE producers show a list of decent choices for their characters only to choose the absolute worst one. Not even Claire or Chris choices were this bad.

    I think Jason Statham’d make a good Leon.

    These films are where mediocre hollywood actors come to kill of what little career they have left.

    When ever these Resident Evil movies come out it sets a decent video-movie back 10 years.

    Thats the logic I have towards these terrible and im sticking with it.

    @7 Let me guess, you constantly exercise and you’re a giant hunk of muscle, super fit and super cut?


    90% of the people here could only hope to be half as healthy (or good looking) as this guy.

    All that matters is the sexy sexy Sienna Guillory is back. Not sure about the blonde, but nevermind.

    @9: Not a giant Hunk, but i have a very healthy body and doing daily workouts, good abs, triceps and biceps. Not to impress the ladies, but for myself.

    @8: It’s okay, just … you usually expect more from actors.
