I had posted about a Netflix series based on the Resident Evil franchise along time ago on my older site and totally forgot about it until now as it is being reported that the series will begin production this June.
I saw a report about it courtesy of Redanian Intelligence which states that the show which will consist of 8 hour long episodes will start pre-production in April in South Africa with shooting targeted for this June.
Unfortunately this is no casting news as of yet but hopefully that will start flowing in this Spring with this announcement. A show runner is also being sought out who will help guide the show while focusing on the already existing mythology of the universe and being a setup for the already released movie franchise.
Per the report: “The Netflix Resident Evil series will explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus.”
The movie franchise starred Milla Jovovich who will be seen in this year’s Monster Hunter with Tony Jaa. The series of films culminated with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter which ended that successful franchise’s run.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more details and 411 goodies to come! In the meantime, watch Jovovich in action from the movie franchise!
