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.
