Bad news for Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City, the cinematic adaptation of Capcom’s legendary game series Resident Evil. The production, which is expected to be released on September 3rd, has been postponed for two months.
Sony has postponed the release date of its new Resident Evil film, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, until November 24, 2021. The new production, which will relaunch the film franchise, was announced last year and was announced last month. The release date of the film also means it will be in theaters in the United States the day before Thanksgiving.
The film will focus on events in Racoon City, home to pharmaceutical company Umbrella Corporation and captured by zombies. Following the story of the first two games, a group of survivors will try to uncover the mystery of the events. Directed by Johannes Roberts of 47 Meters Down, the film will star Chad Rook, Kaya Scodelario, Robbie Amell, Hannah John Kamen, Avan Jogia, Tom Hopper, Lily Gao, Neal McDonough and Donal Louge.
The film, whose name was announced last month, forms a small part of the RE project. Because in May, the new RE game Village will be released. Fans will then be waiting for a live action Netflix production that will put the Wesker family under the microscope with an animated series about leon and claire, one of the game’s characters.
