Movie adaptations of the Resident Evil series of games are nothing new, but they have never really been done properly. Soon, however, this may change, because at the end of the year we will receive a reboot of the series, which at the moment promises to be really encouraging!
I think a lot of people would agree that the Resident Evil movies starring Mila Jovovich are a complete disaster. Fortunately, this series has been completed and we will soon receive a reboot, which seems to closely follow the cult series of games. We have been hearing about the production for a long time, but only today we got the first look at the main characters: Leon S. Kennedy (Avan Jogia), Claire Redfield (Kaya Scodelario), Jill Valentine (Hannah John-Kamen), Albert Wesker (Tom Hopper) and Chris Redfield (Robbie Amell).

The story will have two timelines. The first will tell about 14-year-old Billy and Jade Wesker – Albert’s daughter, one of the most important characters in the game universe – are in the process of moving to New Raccoon City. As they learn about the surroundings of the corporate headquarters, they realize that the place holds many dark secrets. In the second line, we move several years later, when humanity has only 15 million people in opposition to 6 million beings infected with the T virus. Jade is already an adult trying to survive with her trauma in New York.
Leon S. Kennedy’s Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City will be played by Avan Jogia, Chris Redfield’s Robbie Amell, his sister Claire Redfield Kaya Scodelario, Jill Valentine – Hannah John-Kamen, Donal Logue – Brian Irons, Neal McDonough will play William Birkin, and Albert Wesker will be played by Tom Hopper, recently known from The Umbrella Academy.
