Resident Evil is due to receive a movie reboot, with Constanin Film set to revisit the franchise with a story based on the very first game, set during 1998 in the heart of Raccoon City. According to writer-director Johannes Roberts, the new movie will be a Resident Evil origin story that will strive to remain faithful to Capcom's survival horror series.

Deadline has the scoop on the Resident Evil movie reboot's central cast, too, led by Maze Runner's Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield, while Avan Jogia of Zombieland: Double Tap fame will play Leon S. Kennedy. Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) will portray villain Albert Wesker, with Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as Resident Evil 2's G-Virus infected scientist William Birkin.

Hannah John-Kamen from Ant-Man and the Wasp will play Jill Valentine, while Robbie Amell (Upload) is in the frame for Chris Redfield. The new Resident Evil film will follow in the footsteps of six previous live-action movies directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, starring Milla Jovovich, and will get back to the series roots with a narrative set in and around the Spencer Mansion.

"With this movie, I really wanted to go back to the original first two games and re-create 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 feels both relatable and relevant to today’s audiences," said Roberts, best known for shark thriller 47 Meters Down and its follow-up.

Presumably, the Resident Evil reboot flick will accompany and potentially tie-in with the planned Netflix live-action series, which apparently focuses upon 'the Wesker kids', Jade and Billie. Currently, the Resident Evil film has yet to be given a release date.
