The Resident Evil collection’ initial reboot flick formally has a title–Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. If you’re a follower of the initial couple of video games as well as were wanting to see several of your faves like Leon as well as Chris as opposed to entirely initial personalities, it resembles you’re in good luck.
The movie’s title was shown IGN throughout a SXSW online meeting, as well as supervisor Johannes Roberts will certainly be consisting of components as well as personalities from the initial 2 video games. These consist of some renowned areas like the police headquarters as well as the manor in Raccoon City, however it’s unclear exactly how the two-month time distinction in between both video games will certainly consider. Another video game, Resident Evil 3, happens simultaneously with the 2nd one, however from Jill Valentine’s point of view.
Kaya Scodelario, maybe best recognized from her operate in the 5th Pirates of the Caribbean movie, will certainly play Claire Redfield, while her sibling Chris will certainly be played by Robbie Amell. Veteran personality star Neal McDonough (Band of Brothers, Angels as well as the Outfield) will certainly play researcher William Birkin, while huge negative Wesker will certainly be Tom Hopper of The Umbrella Academy popularity. It appears he simply can’t escape Umbrella.
Based on Roberts’ previous comments, it looks like Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will not be as bombastic and explosion-heavy as the previous films. He is looking to tell a “grounded” story and given that the series didn’t head into action territory until after the first few games, that seems to fit the source material.
Along with the new live-action film, there is also a live-action series in the works at Netflix following the Wesker family as well as an animated series with Leon and Claire. Combine that with Resident Evil Village releasing in less than two months, and it’s a great time to be a Resident Evil fan.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is scheduled hit theaters on September 3.
