A Resident Evil live-action movie reboot has been announced, with The Hollywood Reporter, reporting the cast and some of the first details we can expect from the film.
The movie reboot is set to star Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner) as Clarie Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man & The Wasp) as Jill Valentine and Robie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield. Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) will play Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) will play Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) will play William Birkin.
“With this movie, I really wanted to go back to the original first two games and re-create the terrifying visceral experience I had when I first played them whilst at the same time telling a grounded human story about a small dying American town that feels both relatable and relevant to today’s audiences”
This movie is set to be the third Resident Evil series and film in development, with the Netflix CGI series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness releasing next year and Netflix also developing a series based around Wesker’s children.
