The recent Resident Evil movie was more miss than hit for me so I’m really curious to see what I’ll think about Netflix’s stab at the franchise in the form of a new series that will broaden the scope of the Umbrella Corporation and those affected by it.
The streaming service has officially announced a July 14th launch for the series which will not be connected in any way to any of the films. This does bode well as fans will get a new take on the popular video game franchise. Check out the official announcement below!
The full cast was revealed last year which includes John Wick franchise star Lance Reddick. Check out the cast shot, cast members and full plot synopses below!
Joining Reddick for the series are Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, and Paola Nuñez.
Netflix ordered the series back in August and there will be eight hour long episodes. Reddick is the first actor of color to portray Albert Wesker on screen and he is a phenomenal actor so I am excited to see what he brings to the table.
I’m curious about this one but I’ll have to see footage to make up my mind. I enjoyed the franchise films with Milla Jovovich even though they went over the top after a while. I do like that the reboot film is going back to the game’s roots and horror elements so we shall see on all fronts.
Keep it locked and loaded for a trailer debut in the near future as we are your destination for everything action in 2022 and beyond!
