The reboot of Constantin’s Resident Evil movie franchise finally seems to have a concrete release date.
According to a rumor that had been shared by the Twisted Voxel team, the live-action horror and suspense film – which is said to follow the original material more closely compared to Paul WS Anderson’s adaptation – would have been marked by the aforementioned production company to reach theaters on September 9, 2021.
After the rumor was revealed, Constantin revealed to Deadline that the launch will actually take place a little earlier, on September 3, 2021.
The release, which is great news for fans, certainly makes sense considering the recent confirmation that filming is finally over.
Chances are that soon a trailer will be released to give fans a first look at Raccoon City and its inhabitants.
It is still not entirely clear how much of the story presented in the original Capcom classics is intended to be addressed in this particular iteration, although photos from the set confirming Raccoon City, as well as what appears to be a version of the iconic Spencer Mansion, are constantly appearing on in the last few months.
Claire and Chris Redfield, Ada Wong, Leon Kennedy, William Birkin, Jill Valentine and Albert Wesker are also confirmed to make an appearance in some way, so our best guess is that the events will end with Jill’s escape from the nightmare seen in Resident Evil 3.
Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) was defined as Claire Redfield’s performer, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) will be the interpreter of Jill Valentine, while Robbie Amell ( The Flash) will take on the role of Chris Redfield.
Actor Avan Jogia (Zumbilândia: Shoot Twice) will play Leon S. Kennedy, while Tom Hopper ( The Umbrella Academy) will play Albert Wesker. Finally, Neal McDonough (Arrow) will play the character William Birkin.
In any case, we imagine that we will have some official photos and videos soon.
As mentioned earlier, the Resident Evil reboot will debut in September.
