We haven’t had much news on the next Resident Evil film since the cast was announced back in October, but fans are in for a treat today with the reveal of the film’s poster and release date.
The film, set to release on September 3, 2021, will be written and directed by Johannes Roberts.
“With this movie, I really wanted to go back to the original first two games and creates 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 feel both relatable and relevant to today’s audiences,” Roberts said in a statement back in October.
The cast will include characters from the games only, with Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia as Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough as William Birkin. The poster released today includes the characters Chief Irons, Brad Vickers, Richard Aiken and Ada Wong.
