It's as if Resident Evil is coming back to life after a long gloomy period. However, the horrific franchise had left a lasting mark on players with Resident Evil 4, which its creator wanted to see as an exclusive to the Gamecube . But with episodes 5 and 6, it's the drama. Capcom only focuses on mindless action, abandoning the essence of the series. We will have to wait until Resident Evil 7, which has a sequel called Resident Evil Village already announced , and the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3 for the license to be back on its feet.
But on the cinema side, fans are still waiting for the film that will catch up with the turnips that are the adaptations of Resident Evil by Paul WS Anderson.
A hope placed in a new adaptation of the franchise, whose shooting is now complete !
A new adaptation that promises to be respectful of the universe
Aside from a respectable debut film, Paul WS Anderson's film adaptation of Resident Evil is a big dud. It must be said that the filmmaker has never been known for his good taste, and will have offered some of the franchise's worst moments on the big screen. Fortunately, a reboot is planned and its shooting has just ended, promising to reconnect with the horrific origins of Resident Evil.
Because according to the many photos unveiled, the action will take place in Raccoon City, with various iconic locations known to players. We will also find cult characters from Resident Evil: Claire Redfield, Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Leon Scott Kennedy, Albert Wesker and William Birkin, respectively played by Kaya Scodelario, Robbie Amell, Hannah John-Kamen, Avan Jogia, Tom Hopper and Neal McDonough.
This Resident Evil reboot is directed by Johannes Roberts, to whom we owe 47 Meters Down, a more than honorable horror film. All hopes are allowed for players who hope for a faithful adaptation, in particular thanks to the excellent trajectory that the franchise is taking again on our consoles.
Without forgetting that a television series, linked to the film reboot, is also being filmed. A program that will be broadcast exclusively on Netflix. With Resident Evil Village coming soon to PS5 and Xbox Series X / Series S, the franchise has a lot to offer fans over the next few years.
