Resident Evil Movie Reboot Gets Official Title

The official title for the upcoming Resident Evil movie reboot has been revealed, and it’s Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City. This was revealed by director Johannes Roberts in an interview with IGN at SXSW 2021.

According to Roberts, Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City will be completely unrelated to the previous Resident Evil movie franchise helmed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

He said:

“Obviously, there is the Resident Evil [film] franchise and this movie doesn’t have anything to do with that.

It’s a whole separate origin story based in the roots of the and the world of horror.

We’re not [making a remake].

We’re going in a completely different [direction]…

It was a real pleasure to be given the reins of a new franchise, hopefully, that really is its own thing.”

Set in the year 1998, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will focus on the events of the aforementioned city under siege from infected zombies. Fans of the games will be happy to learn that both the mansion from the original Resident Evil and the police station from Resident Evil 2 will be featured in the movie.

The previously-announced cast includes:

  • Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) 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) as William Birkin.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is slated to premiere on 4 September 2021. However, no official trailer or poster has been released as of yet. If you’re confused, this movie is separate and unconnected to the upcoming Resident Evil Netflix animated movie.
