We’ve got some good news, bad news today as Sony has released an official synopsis for its upcoming feature film reboot of Resident Evil but at the same time has pushed back the film’s release from September to November. This new entry is said to bring the franchise back to its origin roots and will be more moody, horror induced and atmospheric as opposed to the bombastic entries in director Paul W.S. Anderson’s films.
The cast for the reboot includes Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Code 8) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin. It was also recently announced that newer cast additions included Donal Logue as Chief Brian Irons, Chad Rook as Richard Aiken, Lily Gao is Ada Wong, and Marina Mazepa is Lisa Trevor.
Director Johannes Roberts, who was the ringmaster behind this latest installment, talked about his creation and elaborated on bringing the franchise back to its roots.
Star Tom Hopper who stars as plays Albert Wesker, captain of the STARS police force who eventually becomes one of the biggest antagonists in the mythology also talked more on the reboot and how it felt like the games.
Sony has announced that the film will be delayed from its initial September 3rd launch and will now hit later in the year on November 24th.
