Ukraine-born American actress Milla Jovovich , best known for her character of Alice in Resident Evil franchise, will soon appear on domestic screens to join forces with a team of Chinese "spies".

The Rookies, which marks the first time for Jovovich to lead a Chinese film, is gearing up to open on July 12.

Directed by Alan Yuen, an established scriptwriter-turned director known for Monster Hunt and New Police Story, the upcoming film is about an elite special agent who allies with an extreme sports enthusiast, a bumbling police officer, a non-professional scientist and an unemployed doctor to take down a terrorist organization.

Promoting the film, which also stars Darren Wang, Sandrine Pinna, Timmy Xu and Liu Meitong recently in Shanghai, Jovovich says she joined the project due to her admiration of director Yuen.

Director Yuen, who has launched the project after the conclusion of Monster Hunt in 2015, hopes the movie will resonate with the young.
