The Canadian shoot of the Resident Evil reboot film has officially completed production according to a tweet from Sony Pictures, which you can see below.
Johannes Roberts will be directing and it’s been confirmed that it will be an origin story taking place at Raccoon City in 1998. The last six Resident Evil films were very loosely based on the video games as it focused on Alice, a character created for the movies. The new film will take cues from the video games released by Capcom.
Previously announced cast members include Kaya Scodelario (Crawl) as Claire Redfield alongside Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp, Ready Player One) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy, Neal McDonough (Yellowstone, Band of Brothers, Captain America: The First Avenger) as William Birkin, Donal Logue, Chad Rook and Lily Gao.
Resident Evil may release in September 9, 2021, although Sony has yet to announce a domestic release date.
