WonderCon: Ali Larter, Oded Fehr on "Resident Evil: Extinction," "Heroes," and "The Mummy 3"
Larter said she and Fehr tried to do as many of the action scenes as possible while enduring "120 degree, hot, and sweaty" conditions for "Extinction." She also joked that by trying to do her own stunts, she was presented with a "good opportunity to shoot guns." Both agreed that despite the heat, they both enjoyed the challenges that came with working on the set.
Every mention of the television series "Heroes" was met with an eruption of cheers from the audience. Larter said that when "Heroes" goes on hiatus during the summer, she plans to start going over scripts for her next movie project.
Oded Fehr, who starred in "The Mummy" and "The Mummy Returns," said that while he has spoken with "The Mummy 3" director Rob Cohen, he will not be appearing in the series' third installment. Nonetheless, Fehr praised the series, which gave him his big break. "It holds a special place in my heart," he said. "[It was] apart of me being an actor."

As the panel came to a close, audience members were surprised with a special clip prepared specifically for WonderCon. As the clip started rolling, a big box appeared in the middle of the desert. All of a sudden, the box opened and an army of zombies ferociously started running towards Alice (Jovovich) and her team, including Carlos (Fehr) and Claire (Larter). The zombies were of human form, but horrifically disfigured as though drenched in acid. Following the zombies release, we were met with a lot of running. Running and shooting to be exact. Oh and did I mention the shotguns, handguns, and boomerang knives?
