Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City (2021)

Post by Krappy » Sat Feb 06, 2021 1:29 am

Once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. The company’s exodus left the city a wasteland…with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, the townspeople are forever.. changed.. and a small group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.

Actor Donal Logue joins the cast and will play "Chief Irons."
In terms of the story, writer/director Johannes Roberts was quoted saying: "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." Producer Robert Kulzer added... "After a dozen games, six live-action movies and hundreds of pages of fan fiction, we felt compelled to return to the year 1998, to explore the secrets hidden in the walls of the Spenser Mansion and Raccoon City." (10/6/20)
Kaya Scodelario as "Claire Redfield."
Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as "Jill Valentine."
Robbie Amell (Upload) as "Chris Redfield."
Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as "Albert Wesker."
Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as "Leon S. Kennedy."
Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) plays "William Birkin."
Writer/director Johannes Roberts had a recent interview where he offered an update on the project and revealed his take on the remake, saying: "We are in active development of that at the moment. I pitched them a take, and they really loved it. So, we are just gearing up on that as we speak, really. I’m in the office all the time there. So, yeah, it’s great. It’s gonna be super scary. It’s super, super scary. And it’s just getting back to the roots of the game. I think, at the moment, I’m not really allowed to say much more than that. But it’s gonna be a lot of fun." (8/18/19)
It was initially announced that James Wan (The Conjuring 2) would produce the film via his Atomic Monster banner, but that proved to be false.
Written/directed by Johannes Roberts (The Other Side of the Door, 47 Meters Down, The Strangers: Prey at Night).
It's said that the film will feature an entirely new cast.
Don't expect to see the return of director Paul W.S. Anderson or actress Milla Jovovich as Alice, especially since the Alice character was created specifically for the movies.
Apparently this will be the first of six planned movies.
Based on the Capcom video game, the live-action series launched in 2002 with Paul W.S. Anderson directing and the franchise would go on to earn $1.2 billion worldwide to date, making it Europe’s most successful independent horror-genre movie franchise in history and the highest-grossing film series based on a video game.
This is said to be a "reboot" to the Resident Evil live-action movie franchise that features a new "origin story adaptation with faithful ties to Capcom’s classic survival horror games."
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City was originally set to be released in theaters on September 3, 2021.
Sony released Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City in theaters on November 24, 2021.

Resident Evil Reboot titled Resident Evil Welcome To Raccoon City revealed its first look at some of the video game characters for the live action movie. Leon Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Chris Redfield, Albert Wesker, Richard Aiken & Jill Valentine. Along with first look at Lisa Trevor the zombie. Some fans don't love the look but I think it looks fine and could be a great movie.
