LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A Beverly Hills talent management company has sued Milla Jovovich, claiming it helped her land her role in "Resident Evil: The Apocalypse" but has not received a share of her acting fees from the zombie film.

The company, known as The Firm, says it had an oral agreement to represent the Ukrainian-born actress-model starting in 1999, in return for a 10 percent commission on all compensation she earned from acting, the lawsuit said.

Jovovich, 28, voided the agreement in 2002 after the first "Resident Evil" film, based on a popular videogame, was released.

Representatives for Jovovich could not immediately be reached for comment.

In its lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, The Firm claims Jovovich negotiated her role in the upcoming "Resident Evil" sequel before the management contract expired.

The Firm believes Jovovich was paid $5 million for the second film, in which she plays a leather-booted, mini-skirted zombie hunter.

Jovovich plays Alice, a security operative for a multinational conglomerate that derives most of its profits from secret research into genetic engineering and viruses. Yahoo.com

The movie is due out: October 1st, 2004 according to Yahoo.com

Thanx, bruce willis was really cool in it. I just watched it on TNT for the thoasandth time. It has one of most unique and enjoyable concepts in any movie. Plus Leloo and Corbon are great characters.

I also need to get it on DVD.
