'Resident Evil' Star Joins Abrams-Cuaron Pilot 'Believe'


Sienna GuilloryNBC’s Believe appears to be heading toward nerdy super group status. The Alfonso Cuaron/J.J. Abrams pilot just added Resident Evil star Sienna Guillory and Once Upon a Time's Jamie Chung to a cast that already includes Savages' Jake McLaughlin and The Chicago Code's Delroy Lindo. You may also recognize Jamie Chung from Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and The Hangover Part II and Sienna Guillory from the family fantasy, Inkheart. They are also joined by newcomer Johnny Sequoyah who plays Believe’s lead character, Bo.

Alfonso Cuaron will write and direct the pilot, which has an I am Number Four quality to it. Believe revolves around Bo, a young girl who possesses great potential powers, and her guardian who is sworn to protect her for seven years. After sever years, these powers will be at full strength, and one can only assume Bo will be able to take care of herself.

Guillory plays  “a cool hit-woman who has issues with her own mother” and Chung will play “a strong, practical and smart woman.” While those descriptions are super-lame, the fact that Cuaron and Abrams are involved with the show bodes very well for the pilot.
